The Event: The Suffragette premiere during the opening-night gala of BFI's London Film Festival. The actress was joined by her co-stars Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham Carter on the red carpet.

Why We Dig: As longtime fans of Mulligan's red-carpet style, it's always exciting to see what the English actress will opt for next. And the new mom knocked it out of the park with her latest get-up. Mulligan found the perfect balance in her Chanel Couture dress — the mesh-embellished bodice hid her post-baby tummy, while the ruffles injected a fun and carefree attitude because clearly, this mama has still got it. Unlike the Chanel runway model who wore this piece with dramatic makeup, the Tony Award-nominated star kept it more minimal by letting her hair down in loose curls and wearing a barely there pink lip.
