Carey Mulligan has been named as the Best Dressed Woman of the Year by Harper's Bazaar Dressed list.

The British actress who has confessed she isn’t normally a slave to fashion, bet celebrity fashion icons such as Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung and Kate Moss to the top of the poll.

Designer Erdem Moraloglu said: "She's so 60s French New Wave - like a Godard starlet - but totally modern."

Speaking about her own style in the past, the 25-year-old admitted that her stylist did most of the work when it came to her wardrobe selection. She said: "I don't really care that much about fashion, I just have a brilliant stylist who dresses me, and in my own life, I'm pretty simple. So that side of things has been wearing."
