The young British star Carey Mulligan, has been crowned the Best Dressed Woman of 2010 by the UK glossy, Harper’s Bazaar.

The 25-year-old actress outclassed more seasoned contenders for the title such as Victoria Beckham, Tilda Swinton, Natalia Vodianova, and even the Prime Minister’s wife, SamCam.

Mulligan, described by one of the judges, the designer Erdem Moralioglu, as being “Like a Godard starlet – but totally modern”, has rarely been off the fashion radar since her much-nominated appearance in “An Education”.

With the assistance of her stylist, Tina Laakkonen, she continually challenges and surprises with her insider knowledge of the latest lust-have names. In the last year alone, she has worn Lanvin, Vionnet, Azzaro, Nina Ricci, Giles and Bottega Veneta, together with Chanel, Prada, Miu Miu, Elie Saab, Proenza Schouler and, the Singaporean, Nepal-raised and New York-based, Prabal Gurung, who is one of American Vogue’s Anna Wintour’s ‘hot’ names to watch.

Mulligan’s only slight fall from style grace happened in the aftermath of her recent break-up with actor, Shia LaBeouf, but even then she managed to make grunge-y jeans, a scraggy T-shirt and no make-up look appealing rather than appalling.

Victoria Beckham was the runner-up in the Harper’s Bazaar Best Dressed poll, with Yasmin Le Bon in third place.

The judging panel, which included the magazine’s editor, Lucy Yeomans, Sienna Miller, Stephen Jones, Kim Hersov and Moralioglu, selected the Top 20 women who represent all that is great about British style today, ranging in age from Coco Sumner, the 20-year old daughter of Sting, to Bianca Jagger, 65. The list also included the mother-and-daughter duo of the ‘Brazilian Bombshell’, Andrea Dellal, and her shoe designer-daughter, Charlotte.

Others listed included Alexa Chung, Florence Welch, Kristin Scott Thomas, Natalie Massenet, Kate Moss, Stella McCartney, Sienna Miller, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes.

Last March, Darryl Macdonald correctly predicted that Sandra Bullock would win the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in “The Blindside.”

But the executive director of the Palm Springs International Film Festival also said in a pre-Oscar story that Carey Mulligan’s performance in the British film “An Education” was better than Bullock’s. Mulligan, however, was still a rising star.

“I just didn’t think there was that much chance of her winning,” Macdonald said Tuesday. “I think she’s going to be one of the great actresses of our lifetime.”

On Jan. 8, Mulligan will be recognized for her rising star qualities when the Palm Springs International Film Festival presents her with its Breakthrough Performance Award at its black-tie awards gala at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

“Carey Mulligan is an actress of extraordinary talent and versatility,” festival chairman Harold Matzner said in a statement. “In her most recent performances as the estranged daughter of Gordon Gekko in ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ to ‘Never Let Me Go,’ where her character learns that life isn’t always what it seems, she brings uncommon vision and depth to her art.”

Mulligan first came to Macdonald’s attention in “Pride and Prejudice” in 2005. She also had roles in “Public Enemies” with Johnny Depp and “Brothers” with Tobey Maguire in 2009.

Past recipients of the Breakthrough Performance Award include Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Hudson, Felicity Huffman and Freida Pinto.

Last year’s recipients were Jeremy Renner and Mariah Carey, who became the evening’s most celebrated award winner thanks to her odd acceptance speech.

The Palm Springs Film Festival runs Jan. 6-17. It’s one of North America’s largest film festivals with more than 130,000 filmgoers expected.
