Rooney Mara In Nina Ricci – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Best Actress nominee Rooney Mara walked the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards in LA this evening.

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived – unsurprisingly, Rooney decided to stick with her usual minimalistic look.

Rooney chose a self-described “comfortable” in her black Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 gown with a plunging neckline and bow ribbon detailing

This is a subtle, girly detail from the stoic actress.

Her hair was styled in a lacquered, side-parted ponytail and natural makeup.

Fred Leighton jewels completed her look.

Rooney Mara In Lanvin – 2012 AFI Awards

Rooney Mara attended the 2012 AFI Awards which was held in Beverly Hills earlier today wearing a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 look.

This is a relatively flirty look, compared to her usual serious red carpet apparel.

Her bi-colour beige and black sleeveless top in satin duchesse was teamed with a black neoprene skirt and black matte waxed leather belt.

The outfit was minimally accessorized, per usual, with a simple pair of black Brian Atwood ‘Debra Due’ peep-toes.

On this occasion Rooney appears to be wearing a bit more makeup than we’re used to seeing, with dark liner highlighting her eyes.

Rooney Mara In Miu Miu – 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Rooney Mara returned to the States on Tuesday evening to attend the 2011 National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City.

Rooney’s one-night stand with colour appears to have ended, as the actress wore a Miu Miu Resort 2012 black cap-sleeved dress. Rooney adds to her monochromatic look with white pumps.

Now that we’ve seen the actress in that stunning Valentino red, this mod look falls flat. Even in comparison to Rooney’s previous simplistic looks, this feels especially lacklustre.

Perhaps she’s finally beginning to feel the pressure of this lengthy ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ press tour.

Rooney Mara In Valentino – ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Rome Premiere

Rooney Mara was in Italy on Monday night for the Rome premiere for her latest movie, ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.

For the first time on the film’s extensive press tour, Rooney attended the event in something brightly-coloured; a gorgeous red Valentino Spring 2012 gown.

Rooney’s gown had shorter sleeves than the runway version, and opted not to wear the thin red belt and long gold chains.

While I prefer the sleeves and belt seen on the runway, I can overlook these small details for what feels like a major triumph.

This scarlet hue looks perfectly dramatic against Rooney’s fair skin and dark hair.

Rooney Mara In Dion Lee – ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Rome Photocall

Earlier today Rooney Mara attended a photocall for ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ in Rome, Italy.

She continued her dark minimalist style by donning a Dion Lee Fall 2012 dress.

The leather sleeveless dress with cut-out details at the waist and an A-line skirt features two of her signatures; black and cut-out details.

Her look was teamed with grey suede Pierre Hardy suede platform peep-toes.

Blunt bangs were adorned with a black headband which is also becoming a signature piece to her red carpet look.

Minimal make-up provided the finishing touch.

How do you feel about yet another black dress?

Maybe Rooney Mara Will Usher In A ‘Dark Minimalist’ Red Carpet Revolution?

If her glam squad’s intention is to shock and awe—they’re succeeding. In a good way of course, as Rooney Mara is quickly becoming a breath of fresh beauty air.

Mara exudes this sophisticated, edgy, seriously chic energy brought forth through her amazing red carpet style, complemented by her bare-bones approach to beauty.

Dare we say it—we even fancy the fringe! Yes, it’s harsh, but it happens to be the pièce de résistance that contributes to her successfully standing out in the crowd.

Isn’t it great to see someone not try to be something they’re not?

Everyone can’t be blonde, bubbly, and tanned to perfection; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress takes the road less traveled with her look—and we wish a few more starlets would follow suit.

Who would you like to see tone down their look on the red carpet? —India-Jewel Jackson
