Rooney Mara is very much the new kid on the block.

The young actress is the star of “A Nightmare On Elm Street” – yes they are still going – which had its LA premiere last night.

For her first major movie premiere she glowed wearing an Alberta Ferretti Spring 2010 dress.

The crepe pleated ivory dress has an apricot apron like overlay which ties to the waist.

I love the jeweled hair accessory which holds back her enviable thick wavy hair.

The look is perfected with a champagne clutch, nude Louboutin’s, Dana Rebecca ring and a red lips.

A+ for the first time out.
