Rooney Mara attended the 27th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival at the weekend, wearing an attention-grabbing structured green dress from the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2012 collection. And we couldn’t be happier to see the Oscar-nominated actress step out of her red carpet comfort zone!
What we love the most about this look is how well the colour complements her porcelain skin and offsets her jet black hair. Green isn’t the easiest of colours to pull off, but judging by the shade, the dress could have easily been made just for Rooney. As cute as they are though, we don’t think the Giambattista Valli black strappy sandals were the best choice, but we’ll let it slide.
At the end of the day, we applaud – well, practically bow down to – Rooney Mara for this full-on colour explosion… akin to her transformation for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, her Louis Vuitton look only confirms that this lady definitely doesn’t do things by halves.
