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.

IFP, Calvin Klein Collection & Euphoria Calvin Klein Celebrate Women In Film

The IFP, Calvin Klein Collection & Euphoria Calvin Klein celebrated Women In Film during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening. All the attendees were of course decked out in Calvin Klein.

Nicole Kidman: The actress, who has been on fire so far this festival, wore a leather dress from the Fall 2013 collection with Jimmy Choo ‘Balma’ pumps and Fred Leighton jewels. The most interesting feature of this look is the cut-out details in the skirt. Sadly, they’re not highlighted in this picture.

Carey Mulligan: Also opting for black, the actress styled her simple strapless Calvin Klein LBD with her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals.

Naomie Harris: The beautiful actress showed off her toned figures wearing an ecru halter dress from the Resort 2013 collection featuring cut-out details at the waist. As always, her styling was impeccable.

Rooney Mara: In Rooney’s early days, when she sported long wavy brunette locks, her go-to dress was always nude. It appears that, even though she now tends to favour black or white, she still can’t resist a nude frock. Her last nude dress left her looking washed out and ghostly; however, this look is the perfect hue to complement her skin tone.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture - 2013 Met Gala

The Met Gala theme for 2013 is ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’. The evening was kick started by one of the co-chairs, Rooney Mara.

We should not be surprised that the actress was wearing a Givenchy Couture look, but for an event of this magnitude, I am very surprised that her look, whilst modified, has been worn once before.

Back in May 2011, Penelope Cruz wore this white lace look at the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ London premiere.

The difference is that Rooney’s Couture gown features an additional lace detailing on the shoulders which cascades down the front of her zipper-accented gown.

Shunning the fresh face trend, she opted for a black currant lip colour with her dark locks tied back into a neat ponytail.

I don’t know about you – even putting Penelope Cruz’ similar look aside, I still have a strong case of déjà vu.

This is the not the first, or the second, but a third time she has donned a lace Givenchy Couture look.

Maybe Rooney and Riccardo Tisci need a plan B. Plan A is tired already.

Rooney Mara In Valentino Couture - 'Side Effects' Berlin Film Festival PremiereAfter dazzling in a white confection at the ‘Side Effects’ New York premiere, Rooney Mara was back to black for the film’s debut at the Berlinale Film Festivale in Germany today.

Our goth-glam girl returned to her dark side in a dress from Valentino’s Spring 2013 Couture collection.

But this was a sweet moment, too—at least for this edgy starlet.

The prim little frock, with its embroidered maze of ivy swirls, its riff on the pouf sleeve and that handkerchief hem, was elevated to a near-girly level. This look seemed mere steps away from a place in a mysterious and gothic secret garden.

The actress’s love of sheer styling continued here, although a nude lining precluded any real show of skin.

With no jewellery and only a basic black pump, this completely unembellished show of stylish austerity was finished with Rooney’s slick top knot, her flawless alabaster complexion and pretty-in-pink lippie.

Rooney Mara In Balenciaga - 'Side Effects' Berlin Film Festival PhotocallBefore her ladylike turn at the ‘Side Effects’ premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany, Rooney Mara suited up for the film’s photocall on Tuesday.

Donning an ensemble from the Balenciaga Resort 2013 collection, the actress was in a mannish mood.

The pleated, high-waisted silhouette of the wool pinstripe pant, with the wide belt bisecting the torso, is a hard trend to wear. It’s even more challenging when paired with a rigid harness-like top.

But count on Rooney as one of the few who could pull this off with some sense of coolness—despite the bit of awkward bunching that happened at the cuffed sleeves of her white blouse.

She looked relatively identical to the lookbook model, save for the swapping of the boot for a pointy pump and skipping the hoop earrings altogether.

She didn’t really need any accessories, though, as that vermillion lip against her porcelain skin was pop enough.

We can always count on her to wear thought-provoking pieces; perhaps she was paying homage to Nicolas Ghesquière with this look from one of his final collections for the Balenciaga label.
