It's been far too long since Carey Mulligan has stepped onto a red carpet. We didn't even know how much we missed her until last night's Costume Institute Gala where she donned this paillette-saturated Prada dress.

The actress' Little Mermaid-meets-Betty Draper gold and silver scaly creation brought some fashion fantasies to life. That this thickly textured number was actually figure-flattering is a small miracle unto itself.

Mulligan, who played co-hostess for the night's festivities, wore her short blond locks in a voluminous french twist and paired the metallic dress with slightly toned-down champagne pumps. No accessories are needed when you are a walking mirror ball.
