Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – 2013 Met Gala

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 Premiere

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 Photocall

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.

Rooney Mara In Alexander McQueen – ‘Side Effects’ New York Premiere

Rooney Mara In Alexander McQueen - 'Side Effects' New York Premiere

Rooney Mara attended the New York premiere of ‘Side Effects’ held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2013 dress, which is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.

Opting to keep the styling simple, Rooney wore nude Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toes with her ivory panelled velvet and macramé cape dress.

There is a strong possibility that Rooney would’ve made the black belt work, but I love her softer presentation of this look.

Smoky eyes, a pink lip colour and her signature lacquered centre-parted ponytail hairstyle provided the finishing touches.

Do you wish Rooney had worn the belt with this look?

Rooney Mara In Calvin Klein – Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala

Rooney Mara was another celebrity who attended the Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala at the Armani Hotel in Dubai on Friday.

The ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ actress often experiments on the red carpet, and this occasion was no different.

She wore a custom-made black sleeveless Calvin Klein sheer dress with a lacquered silk skirt, sculptural detail on the bust and a thick waistband.

While the look is definitely risky, Rooney pulled it off by keeping her hair tightly pulled back and pairing the dress with simple, strappy Givenchy heels.

The finished look was part dominatrix, part runway model — and full on fabulous.

Rooney Mara In Givenchy Couture – 2012 Met Gala

Rooney Mara gave us no surprises on the red carpet as she posed for photographers at the 2012 Met Gala, held on Monday night in New York City.

Despite being seen shooting scenes for a new movie sporting lighter locks, the actress appears to have dyed the front of her hair a dark colour to give us the dark, moody glamour we have come to expect from her.

She wore a Givenchy Couture black asymmetrical one-sleeve lace dress with laser-cut leather details which was accented with a black leather belt.

A slicked-back bun, a dark pink lip shade, and black Givenchy sandals completed her look.
