I knew the colour pop for the ‘Lawless’ photocall was temporary and that Mia Wasikowska would opt for a dark colour for this evening’s Cannes Film Festival premiere.

Wearing her cropped hair in a braided bun, the Australian actress glided gown the red carpet in a J. Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

Her plum textured v-necked gown with a gathered center and draped sleeves, without the cut-out, was simply styled with Chopard diamond jewels.

Normally I find it hard to warm to Mia’s red carpet style, but I love this gown on this occasion.
