Newly minted fashion darlings Carey Mulligan and Anna Kendrick ruled the red carpet at the BAFTA awards tonight, which air in the United States on BBC America at 8 p.m. Eastern. Kendrick, nominated for best supporting actress in Up in the Air, dazzled in a canary yellow Pucci knee-length ruffled dress, while Mulligan, who took home a best actress trophy for her role in An Education, stood out in an unusual floral-print dress by Vionnet.

In a sea of habitual sameness — flowy trains, sleek black gowns, plunging necklines — these two distinctive, elegant, but super-different looks are both charming and refreshing.

What do you think of Kendrick’s and Mulligan’s red-carpet style, PopWatchers?
