Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Rooney Mara Downtown Calvin Klein

Having sat front row at Calvin Klein shows and taken to the red carpet in the brands minimalist threads, I am not surprised that Rooney Mara is the face of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance, ‘Downtown’.

The ‘Downtown’ Calvin Klein fragrance balances feminine woods with soft floral notes that make it confident and modern with a unique signature and an unexpected edge. Sounds very much like Rooney herself.

Jean-Baptiste Mondino shot the print campaign; plus there is a moody film directed by David Fincher, who is known for his dark and stylish thrillers, including ‘Alien 3′, ‘Seven’, ‘The Game’ and ‘Fight Club’ to name a few.

Rooney told WWD: “It’s an honour to be part of a brand with such a legacy of breakthrough advertising. The Downtown fragrance holds true to the chic, confident and simple feeling of the Calvin brand. The effortless and timeless appeal of the Calvin Klein Collection and the Downtown scent made this a natural partnership.”

Rooney Mara In J W

Rooney Mara gave us quite the ‘frill’ yesterday at the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival screening of IFC Films’ ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ premiere at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in California.

The actress, who is nothing if not fashionably predictable, tiptoed outside of her style box by wearing blue, instead of black, and by adding some girly flair with ruffles.

Her midnight-navy look from the J.W. Anderson Spring 2013 collection featured an on-trend cropped top and a pair of neoprene culottes, which could have easily been taken for a skirt at first glance.

Her black shoes, however, were no surprise. As her only accessory, her beloved Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals made an appearance, adding yet another destination to their impressive red-carpet passport.

While Rooney’s hair was sculpted into an architectural bun, she stayed away from her harsher oxblood lippie. Her barely-there makeup highlighted her alabaster complexion and kept this look fresh and youthful.

Rooney Mara in Calvin Klein - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rooney Mara took to the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City for the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday evening.

Dressed in Calvin Klein and her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ pumps, the actress not only shares Carey Mulligan’s love for the same shoes, but they also share a love for the colour black and minimalist red carpet dressing.

It’s always really hard for me to get excited about a Rooney Mara look because the looks and styling never steer too far away from what we’ve come to expect.

Rooney Mara In Vera Wang - ‘For The Love Of Cinema’ Event

Rooney Mara wore yet another bi-colour look while attending the ‘For The Love Of Cinema’ event hosted by Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France on Sunday alongside Naomi Watts and Karolina Kurkova.

The actress wore a Vera Wang Fall 2013 black-and-stone layered look with a charcoal bralet overlay, which she styled with Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals.

It’s an interesting look which is strangely simple and complex at the same time.

I always find the berry lip colour so harsh on Rooney. I wish she would consider different options, much like her dress colours on the red carpet.

At this point, I would have a heart attack if she wore pink, for example.

Rooney Mara In Christian Dior - 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Rooney Mara attended the ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ photocall during Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in France this evening.

The actress wore a Christian Dior Fall 2013 ensemble which features a pale grey bi-coloured silk cape with rose silk bustier and navy-blue denim wool skirt.

It’s the look that inspired Jennifer Lawrence’s evening gown which she wore earlier this evening.

Observing both looks, I think each actress made the right choice to suit their individual styles.

I fear the cape-like detail may have overwhelmed Jennifer whereas Rooney’s style prowess ensured she pulled the look off with ease.

Like Carey Mulligan, Rooney can’t seem to live without her Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals at the moment.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a super slick back bun completed her look.

Rooney Mara In Giambattista Valli - 'The Great Gatsby' Cannes Film Festival Party

There are so many events happening around Cannes Film Festival that it’s hard to keep up.

Rooney Mara attended ‘The Great Gatsby’ party following the premiere at the Quai Laubeuf on Wednesday evening.

Combining two of her favourite colours, black and white, she wore a Giambattista Valli jumpsuit from the Fall 2011 collection.

I love how this look is both edgy yet simple at the same time.

Like Marion Cotillard for Dior, it is great to see Rooney step outside of her Givenchy bubble for a refreshing change.

A signature pulled-back hairdo, barely there makeup and Jimmy Choo ‘Greta’ sandals completed her look.

This minimalist trend is really starting to grow on me. Words I never thought I would say.
