Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Two of Hollywood’s hottest stars were seated in the front row at the Calvin Klein Fall 2012 presentation, which closed New York Fashion Week last week.

Rooney Mara: The actress wore a Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2012 dress in her favourite colour: black. Her chic sleeveless dress with mesh yoke and fluted skirt was styled with black strappy sandals, a simple bun and pretty, neutral makeup.

Emma Stone: The actress opted for more colour, wearing a red Calvin Klein knit top with a full skirt. She accessorized with Brian Atwood ‘Sinful’ red ankle strap peep toes and a contrasting metallic silver fold-over clutch. A ponytail, kohl-rimmed eyes and a pink lip colour completed her look.

Whilst I like both their choices, I wish Rooney’s wasn’t so predictable. At this rate she’s going to run out of LBDs to wear.

After a brief flirtation with wearing a colour outside her comfort zone on Friday, Rooney Mara was back to black and white whilst attending the 84th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon which was held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California earlier today.

I’ve been onboard with nearly all her minimalist looks, but I just can’t get excited about her black ASOS jumpsuit, which she wore with a white Thierry Mugler jacket.

The look is very chic in theory – well the jacket is – but her looks are starting to feel a bit samey, plus I don’t like the way the pants are overwhelming her tiny frame.

This isn’t the first time she’s gone high-end, low-end on the red carpet, because she’s worn a Givenchy jacket with an ASOS playsuit once before, but it’s the first time I’ve not been particularly fussed by it.

She switched things up by opting for blunt bangs after sporting a lacquered look for a while.

What do you think about this look – would you take it or leave it?

Following her brief visit to Asia, Rooney Mara attended the 27th Annual Santa Barbara Film Festival Virtuosos Award where she was recipient of an award.

She was gorgeous in green wearing a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

I’m sure many of you are in shock that she’s wearing a colour other than black or white.

Her sleeveless green pocked dress answers all of our prayers.

Black Giambattista Valli sandals and a slick back low ponytail completed her look.

Does this dress feel a tad familiar?

That’s because Rooney wore a similar dress from the same collection for the Paris premiere of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”

Rooney Mara attended a photocall in Tokyo, Japan, earlier this week to promote ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.

She opted to wear another Givenchy Spring 2012 look.

This time she paired an ivory jacket with yet more sculptural details and a slightly ruffled peplum.

She wore her look with slick H&M black leggings and black minimalist suede leather sandals because she’s a minimalist kinda gal.

Many of you were not happy with Rooney only wearing black, but it looks like she’s now added ivory and white to her narrow colour palette.

Are you enjoying her minimalist looks, or are you hoping for more range in the future?
