Carey Mulligan shocked by style criticism

Carey Mulligan has to put up with more style criticism since starring in The Great Gatsby.

The actress used to sport a cute pixie crop but wears it a little longer for her role as Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's hotly-anticipated The Great Gatsby.

Since reaching mega stardom, the 27-year-old has had to deal with much more interest in her style.

"I've never done a film on this scale before, so I've never had this level of attention, but I've always worn what I want to wear and done my hair how I wanted," she admitted to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"I did a press conference yesterday, and one of the journalists came up to me and said, 'Thank god you've grown your hair out, it looked terrible before,' which is charming! But I cut my hair for work and let it grow out for work, and when I'm releasing a film, I wear clothes for press but I just wear what I'm comfortable in."

The star hasn't just dabbled with the length of her locks, but also the colour.

Previously a brunette, Carey is now a bottle blonde.

"I kind of go between the two," she revealed.

"I've been dark and blonde over the past couple of years. I did a play where I had brown hair before that, and then they dyed my hair blonde. I wore a wig in Gatsby, but the roots of my hair had to be blonde to mix in with the wig so I dyed my hair blonde."
