Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein – 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

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 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 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

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

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.
