This week's obsessions? Carey Mulligan's understated evening makeup, Gigi Hadid's perfect ponytail, and Alexa Chung's bare skin and red lip pairing.

Carey Mulligan at the premiere of Suffragette: When you're wearing Chanel couture, you don't need a face full of makeup to stand out. Exhibit A: Carey Mulligan's bouncy, middle-parted blowout and understated makeup that emphasizes her porcelain complexion — the perfect look for a black-tie affair.

Gigi Hadid at the Global Lyme Alliance Inaugural Gala: Another fresh way to style an evening gown? With an easy, high ponytail. Like Gigi Hadid, let a few flyaways frame your face — it immediately adds an ease to formalwear (not to mention a pair of seriously gorgeous drop earrings, like the model's.)
