Oscar Fashion: Carey Mulligan's best dress of the season

carey-mulligan-oscar-black2.jpgBritish actress Carey Mulligan, nominated for Best Actress for her role in "The Education," saved the best dress for last in the 2010 Awards Season.

She chose a black strapless Prada gown with a voluminous skirt and train for the big O night.

And yes, those cool shoes are Prada too.

She may not have won an Oscar but she gets our vote for Best-Dressed for a simple, elegant sexy black strapless dress with edgy shoes and an edgy blonde Jean Seberg do.

She didn't accesorize with boyfriend Shia LaBeouf. But it's just as well. He really doesn't do well at big star-studded events.

And to think Vogue editor Anna Wintour advised her to wear a short frock to the Oscars. Good for Carey for following her gut.
