YAY…we have our first bonafide red carpet premiere look of 2012 courtesy of Rooney Mara.

She picked up right where she left off in 2011 promoting ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ with a premiere in Paris this evening.

The actress, who appears to have had some red carpet posing coaching over the holidays, looked super confident on the red carpet wearing a black Louis Vuitton sleeveless dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

Her gorgeous dress with a bell-shaped skirt also has an embroidered and woven detail with gold embellishments which really sets it apart from the average LBD.

A black leather belt and Balmain strappy sandals provide the finishing touches, whilst she swept her blunt bangs to the side and added hot red lips for a pop of colour.

With her shoulders back and sexy glare, the shy timid star is no longer.

J’Adore this look from head-to-toe.

What do you think?
