Rooney Mara Givenchy.jpg

Rooney Mara was one of the subjects of my Oscar predictions, when I said "she'll go for either a pale colour or something heavily textured." Granted, this was obviously quite an easy one to predict, as she did both!

Opting for a Givenchy Couture gown with a very fine, cobweb-lace texture, Rooney's the personification of the phrase 'pale and interesting'. I wasn't sure about this one at first; on the TV it looked a bit big around the top, but it photographs better, and the dramatic hemline is stunning. The hair and makeup looks great and the whole look is very 'Rooney'.

But is is memorable compared to some of the more 'wow' looks of the night? What do you think?
