Kate Mara In Jack Guisso Couture – 2012 Oscars

Kate Mara supported her ‘Best Actress’ nominated sister, Rooney Mara, at the 2012 Oscars in Hollywood this evening.

While Rooney defines minimalist chic, Kate looks every bit as ladylike, in a pink Jack Guisso Couture Spring 2012 gown with floral appliqués.

The sparkling dress features one draped sleeves, which adds to the romanticism of the look, while a thin, white belt is an unexpected, but welcome touch.

Soft waves pulled back with a crystal pin and subtle makeup completes the look.

You’d be forgiven if you thought this was Elie Saab.

    Such a contrast to her sister. I prefer this soft and sweet look to Rooney’s. But Rooney is edgy and fun in her own right.

    this is a fabulous look for kate. she looks far better than rooney in this event imo.

    I love that last comment because I thought for sure it was Elie Saab! I like it but I probably will not remember it when it comes down to best dressed

    It looks like an Elie Saab knockoff, a dated knockoff at that.

    • SilentVisitor February 27, 2012 at 04:17 #

      I totally agree. When I first saw it, I thought it was an ES…….

    You read my mind FC. Not only I thought that this was Elie Saab, I was convinced that this was Elie Saab.

      +1! I though it was Saab as well :D This is a gorgeous, ladylike, quietly elegant dress. Imo she blew Rooney out of the water :D

    The droopy sleeve draws attention to or makes it appear that her posture is terrible.

    • dee February 27, 2012 at 04:27 #

      Exactly what I was thinking.

  7. Shaina February 27, 2012 at 03:52 #

    This dress is beautiful, she looks outstanding! Definitely could pass for an Elie Saab gown.

  8. Christine February 27, 2012 at 03:52 #

    Don’t like the one draped sleeve. Wish it was two instead of that one.

  9. Ro February 27, 2012 at 03:54 #

    The dress is beautiful but I don’t feel like she’s breathing any life into it.

  10. Ariel February 27, 2012 at 03:55 #

    I would’ve thought it was Elie Saab too. I should look into this designer as this gown is stunning!

  11. AW February 27, 2012 at 03:57 #

    I like the dress minus the sleeve detail

  12. Leti February 27, 2012 at 03:59 #

    I was sure it was Elie Saab! It’s a lovely gown. She’s not making waves, but it’s a nice foil to her sister’s gown.

  13. gurlygurl February 27, 2012 at 04:16 #

    I adore this on the runway. It’s pretty on the red carpet but not quite right. Maybe it just washes her out too mcuh.

  14. bm February 27, 2012 at 04:19 #

    I think she doesn’t have the body to pull off this dress.

  15. PB February 27, 2012 at 05:14 #

    IT’S NOT ELIE SAAB? IT IS SO ELIE SAAB THAT IT CAN’T NOT BE ELIE SAAB. WHAT A RIP-OFF.

  16. Aline February 27, 2012 at 05:56 #

    LOL! I certainly thought it was an Elie Saab. But either way, it’s gorgeous and one of my favorite dresses of the night. But she doesn’t work it…

  17. Hannah February 27, 2012 at 06:50 #

    She looks nice, but that’s it. It actually reminded me a lot of JEssica Alba’s Guccia Premiere at the Golden Globes.

  18. hally February 27, 2012 at 06:51 #

    so pretty! and i was sure this was Elie Saab! I think other outlets were even reporting it as such.

  19. R. February 27, 2012 at 07:42 #

    Minus the horrible sleeve, this out shines the horrible Elie Saabs we saw tonight.

  20. A. February 27, 2012 at 08:01 #

    I really did think it was an Elie Saab outfit when I first saw her on the red carpet. Anyway. I personally liked the gown better on Kate than on the model. I like how the belt accentuates her waist. She looks lovely.

  21. Andreea February 27, 2012 at 08:19 #

    I was absolutely sure that this dress was an Elie Saab.It looks boring on her anyway.

  22. Zmia February 27, 2012 at 08:38 #

    It looks like Jessica Albas Gucci gown from Golden globes!

  23. justme February 27, 2012 at 12:32 #

    Very pretty dress.
    I’m not convinced about the wearer lack of attitude but hey, maybe it’s in their genes lol.

  24. Dianablues February 27, 2012 at 13:19 #

    Lovely dress, but watching her walk down the red carpet, I kept thinking “stand up straight girl”. She was terrible hunched over and looked almost unsure of herself

  25. Carolina Roq February 27, 2012 at 13:49 #

    They’re sisters?? Wow

  26. jane February 27, 2012 at 20:27 #

    Horrible posture ruins the dress entirely.

  27. stacey February 29, 2012 at 22:48 #

    Love Kate Mara’s dress, never heard of the designer before Jack Guisso? It’s stunning!

  28. Alexandre Guisso April 4, 2012 at 18:58 #

    Wonderful.
