Rooney Mara returned to the States on Tuesday evening to attend the 2011 National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City.

Rooney’s one-night stand with colour appears to have ended, as the actress wore a Miu Miu Resort 2012 black cap-sleeved dress. Rooney adds to her monochromatic look with white pumps.

Now that we’ve seen the actress in that stunning Valentino red, this mod look falls flat. Even in comparison to Rooney’s previous simplistic looks, this feels especially lacklustre.

Perhaps she’s finally beginning to feel the pressure of this lengthy ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ press tour.

A lacquered side-parted bun and minimalistic makeup finish the look.
