WERQ: Rooney Mara in Prabal Gurung

Posted on December 15, 2011

Watching Rooney Mara do the international poledance for her new movie, we’re struck by two things. 1) She really loves unusual dresses with cutouts, and 2) She may just have found her perfect designer in Prabal Gurung.

We thought that Givenchy she was wearing the other day did her no favors, but somehow the girl pulled off an unprecedented styling reversal of fortune, because this is the best we’ve ever seen her look.

Yeah, it’s a weird dress, but she clearly feels the need to work a Weird Girl persona right now (and who knows? Maybe she really is one) so this suits her perfectly. A dress like this is not at all easy to wear and we think that’s obvious at first glance. That she’s not only wearing it, but rocking it, is a testament to what happens when a gal finds just the right dress for her.

Also, she did something pretty awesome with those horrible bangs she’s been sporting. You WERQ that chic, weird shit, girl!
