Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – ‘Mary Magdalene’ London Screening

Rooney Mara made a return to the spotlight for the ‘Mary Magdalene’ special screening held at The National Gallery on Monday (February 26) in London.

As it expected, the actress wore both black and Givenchy Couture.

Her tailored and lace look was a hybrid of two Spring 2018 looks which took to the runway.

Unfortunately, I feel like the bodice on hers is:

1. too bulky and;

2. overwhelming her.

The simpler the look, the less uncomfortable Rooney appears.

I wish she had worn the full look to the right which feels a lot cleaner and less fussy.

The Art of Elysium presents John Legend’s HEAVEN Gala

As to be expected, there was a rush of stars at the 11th annual edition of The Art of Elysium Presents John Legend’s HEAVEN was held on Saturday (January 6) in Santa Monica, California.

Ashley Madekwe: I was a bit surprised to see Ashley donning the Rodarte Fall 2017 look that Nicole Kidman wore to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. I will say the proportions of the glittery, ruffled look seemed a bit better suited to Ashley.

Rooney Mara: The actress looks to be continuing 2018 with her favoured colour palette of black and white with this Givenchy Spring 2018 lace-accented, asymmetrical dress.

Vanessa Hudgens: I like the enchanting sweep of this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 cape gown styled with an Emm Kuo clutch. What betrays the look a bit is the heavy-handed, rust-hued eye makeup, which is a bit too much in the red colour family.

Rooney Mara In Alexander McQueen – ‘UNA’ New York Screening

Rooney Mara may have been at Paris Fashion Week for the Givenchy Spring 2018 show, but it’s Alexander McQueen who marked her return to the red carpet for the ‘UNA’ New York screening on Wednesday (October 4).

Black and white are Rooney’s preferred red carpet choices, however red is occasionally added to this mix.

The actress recently said to Harper’s Bazaar that she loves to express herself through fashion, so I feel confidence is what she’s portraying in this Spring 2018 two-piece.

While you might be saying, “where’s the McQueen in this McQueen?” I’m loving the striking colour and simplicity of the styling.

Rooney Mara In Christian Dior – 2017 Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Rooney Mara made a surprise appearance on the red carpet for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony on Sunday night (May 28).

Always treading the line between gothic and romantic, she veered more to the latter wearing a beautiful white silk embroidered dress by Dior.

I adore the dainty flared silhouette and the classic black and white colour palette.

Usually I’m searching for a little bit more from Rooney, but she delivers on all fronts here for me.

2017 Humane Society Gala

The Humane Society’s annual ‘To the Rescue!’ gala was held on Saturday (April 22) in LA, with a group of animal-loving stars in attendance.

Laura Vandervoort: The epitome of chic, Laura showed off the glories of the LBD’s counterpart, the little white dress, in this Rhea Costa Pre-Fall 2017 design. I love the subtle drama of the split sleeves and how she frosted the minimalist look with the sophisticated flash of accessories including an embellished bronze Kate Spade New York clutch and Bionda Castana metallic shoes.

Elizabeth Banks: Girly springtime flair was alive and well in this pointillist pink Fendi dress styled with complementary Prada shoes. The racing stripes down the front and sides added a welcome edge to the sweetness of the ruffle skirt, keeping the look from going too sugary.

Rooney Mara: This Burberry Spring 2017 ensemble paired ladylike, doily lace with a menswear-inspired dress shirt. But, despite the fresh, creamy-white hue, the look not only seemed ill-fitted but also a bit drab and ageing on Rooney.
