Dark is Definitely Rooney Mara’s Color: Three Standout Looks (Forum Buzz)

Rooney Mara took a dark turn the second she signed on to play Lisbeth Salander in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, and as the whole world has (by now) realized – dark suits her.

Rooney Mara Balenciaga Resort 2013


Currently making the rounds at the Berlin Film Festival, Rooney is sticking to a dark palette wardrobe-wise and it continues to work in her favor. She looked chic and relaxed in a Balenciaga Resort 2013 ensemble that forum members fell hard for.

“Absolutely fantastic in Balenciaga. She looks so effortlessly modern and chic.” Wolkfolk declared.

“She looks so good,” Chloe24 gushed. “Amazing outfit and the hair and makeup go great with it.”

Rooney Mara Valentino’s haute couture Spring 2013


At the premiere of her new film, Side Effects, Rooney stepped out in an Haute Couture dress with an asymmetrical hemline from Valentino’s Spring 2013 collection.

“I love how you can see a peek of cream silk lining on that dress,” HeatherAnne remarked. “It's a beautifully structured dress. I'm not crazy about her hairstyle, but I'm glad she didn't wear braids like so many celebrities do when they're wearing Valentino.”

Catherine88 called the Valentino dress “delicate but still very elegant and not so girly.”

Rooney Mara in Miu Miu


Not technically a completely new look, Rooney arrived at the premiere with a feminine Miu Miu Fall 2011 coat secured over her Valentino dress.

“It's really amazing how that Miu Miu coat doesn't look gimmicky on her (unlike most people who wore something from this collection),” LolaSvelt noted. “That's why I didn't even notice that she was wearing something from that collection.”

“What I find great is how all of her looks are tailored correctly for her frame,” before posted. “They could easily overpower her tiny figure, but they don't.”

Note to Hollywood: Please continue to keep Rooney Mara employed. We enjoy her style too much for her to step out of the spotlight (for too long).
