Rooney Mara in Dion Lee and Valentino

Posted on January 10, 2012

The Audreybot continues her rampage across Europe, turning her cold robot eyes toward Italy. Once again, she switches back and forth between “pretty princess” and “Blade Runner extra.”

She really seems to like cutouts at the hip or stomach, which are easily the very worst places to have a cutout for most women. She can handle them here, but the dress is a bit too heavy-looking. From far away she’s fine, because black looks so dramatic on her right now, but you get in close and the impression is that of a blacksmith’s apron rather than a dress. Striking, but not our favorite look from her.

But wait. There’s more! If you act now, you can get a SECOND Rooney Mara wearing something far more conventional!

Her look right now is so stark and unusual that a fairly traditional red Valentino gown winds up looking edgy on her. What really sells this look is her absolutely stunning makeup. This may be the best face she’s worn during this entire pole-dancing exercise. The dress is very pretty on her and again, her coloring and severe look really makes that red sing in a way it wouldn’t on a non-Audreybot. Think about it: red and black are two of the most common red carpet colors and she’s making them look distinct simply through the power of styling and attitude.
