I’m just going to say it: I loved Rooney Mara’s Oscar dress.
I would have done something different with the boob eyelash things on the front, like pressed them flat or … something. But the rest of the dress was perfect.
Especially the back.
(My least favorite dress was Sandra Bullock’s retro 80s abomination. Read more about that at Work It, Mom!)
I may have a little girl crush on Rooney Mara; she’s so pretty, and that whole black hair-red lip thing is totally working for her. She’s equal parts poised and hesitant on the red carpet, simultaneously waiflike and tough. I’m so impressed by the way she’s turned her Girl With the Dragon Tattoo look into a style that really suits her. She needs to give her stylist a big post-awards season bonus.
Also, you’ve gotta love this:
Daniel Craig is all, “Ho hum photo call, whatever.” But the look on Rooney’s face says, “OMG YOU GUYS I’M TOTALLY STANDING HERE WITH DANIEL CRAIG!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT??? WHEE!!!”
But this one is even better:
Craig is making that same Hot Guy at Photo Call face while Mara is going, “HEY! DANIEL! YOU’RE STANDING ON MY TRAIN! WATCH THE DRESS! Sheesh.”
