Rooney Mara In Chanel – 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Rooney Mara In Chanel - 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Rooney Mara attended the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where Cate Blanchett picked up the ‘Outstanding Performer of the Year’ award on Saturday (February 1) in Santa Barbara, California.

Dressed in her favourite colour; black, Rooney wore a loose-fit Chanel cold-shoulder knit dress with lace trims.

We are used to seeing Rooney navigate trickier looks than this, so how do you feel about this change of pace?

Jimmy Choo ‘Greta’ sandals, barely there makeup and gold rings rounded out her simple look.

    It’s okay. But she is totally outshone by Cate Blanchette.

    This is so dull!

    Except for the hair — I don’t like those whisk-broom strands sticking out — she pulls this off nicely. I find the structure of the dress interesting enough to keep the overall look from being a colossal bore.

    As for being outshone by Cate, well, she SHOULD be, as Cate was the celebrated star of the moment.

    I actually like the softer approach to hair and make up, but, wow, Cate is so obviously in a whole different league. Get a bit more playful with fashion already, Rooney!

    I actually like this simple but lovely look.

    This look ages her and I wish she would learn the wonders of a smile.

    The length and shoes and the off-shoulder sleeves are a strange combination, a bit old fashioned. Kind of a 90′s look – is it just me? Maybe Winona Ryder in the 90′s if you add a dark brown-red lip?

    It’s not a bad look but overall Rooney is a complete snooze fest on the red carpet. It’s always the same style, colors, hair and makeup and plus she never smiles. I get wanting to stick with what you’re comfortable with but her lack of enthusiasm is kind of sad.

      I agree…
