Rooney Mara In Louis Vuitton – ‘Her’ Rome Film Festival Photocall

Rooney Mara In Louis Vuitton - 'Her' Rome Film Festival Photocall

Rooney Mara attended the ‘Her’ photocall during the 8th Rome Film Festival held at the Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Italy yesterday afternoon.

The actress gave us no surprises, donning her favourite colour – black.

Dressed in a Louis Vuitton cap-sleeve, drop-waist, button-down frock with front pocket flaps and a sweet velvet bow detail, she styled the look simply with black and clear-pvc ankle-strap pumps.

Neutral makeup and a ponytail completed her signature no-fuss minimalist look.

Xu Fan In Christopher Bu – ‘Centro Historico’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Xu Fan attended the ‘Centro Historico’ premiere during the 7th Rome Film Festival at the Auditorium Parco Della Musica on Friday evening in Italy.

The Asian actress looked beautiful wearing a Christopher Bu gown.

Her black chiffon gown with intricate beaded and embroidered details on the bodice and skirt was styled with a stunning necklace and onyx ring.

Xu Fan kept her makeup minimal and opted for a twisted updo.

The name Christopher Bu should ring a bell, as he is the designer who creates those gorgeous traditional gowns we see on Fan Bingbing during opening ceremony of Cannes Film Festival every year.

This gown showcases his ability to create more contemporary gowns, too.

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior – ‘Love For Life’ Rome Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

The Rome Film Festival came alive again last night as Zhang Ziyi graced the red carpet for the ‘Love for Life’ premiere.

I have goosebumps as I’m writing this; Zhang is beyond breathtaking in her Christian Dior Resort 2011 gown.

Her baby-blue strapless embroidered gown with a matching ribbon tied to the waist will no doubt make many BDOTY lists.

Zhang kinda fell off the radar for a while, but this is a surefire way to signal to everyone that she’s back.

A darker-blue embellished Swarovski clutch was teamed with ivory Swarovski drop earrings and a Swarovski diamond-encrusted bracelet.

I think the bracelet was one accessory too many for this look, but I’m just thankful that she didn’t add a necklace.

A simple bun and a dewy glow completed her look.

Noomi Rapace In Giambattista Valli – ‘Babycall’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Noomi Rapace made a return to the red carpet for the Rome Film Festival premiere for ‘Babycall’.

The Swedish actress wore a Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

Her red one-shoulder silk jersey dress has a grosgrain insert at the waist and a bow shoulder detail.

Noomi made this look her own by draping the dress over her shoulder.

With her hair in a tight bun she accessorized with a black and gold Lara Bohinc clutch and a gold cuff.

Despite Noomi wearing one of my favourite designers, I can’t get passed the pumps.

Earlier this year, Noomi made a huge splash on the red carpet, so I’m disappointed by her safe, inappropriate shoe choice on this occasion, even if they are by Christian Louboutin.

These heels are not red carpet worthy and should never been placed anywhere near this dress.

They are so heavy that they weigh down the look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Alexander McQueen – ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Maggie Gyllenhaal wore ivory again for the ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival premiere.

The actress seems to like to wear this neutral hue whilst promoting this movie.

On this occasion she wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 jersey dress with a ruffled halter neckline.

She swept her hair up into a chic bun and accessorized with gold Bvlgari jewels which included large hooped earrings.

Signature red lippie and rosy cheeks completed her look.

Her dress is gorgeous.

It’s a typical sophisticated boho look for Maggie, but I would’ve loved this look more had she worn a bra.

Thankfully, her gown hits the floor so we didn’t get to see her Roger Vivier black pumps.
