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