In or Out: Rooney Mara in Louis Vuitton

Posted on February 06, 2012

Is there anything about this look we don’t like? Could there possibly be?

Rooney Mara attends 27th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival – Virtuosos Award in California in a Louis Vuitton dress paired with Giambattista Valli shoes.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Xiao Wen Ju

Giambattista Valli Fall 2008 Collection

Because that color – COLOR! On the Audreybot! Where’s our fainting couch? – looks fabulous on her. And we love that she wore the coat, even though we normally hate a matching coat and dress set. And those shoes are ADORABLE. So what’s the problem? That distractingly amateurish makeup job, that’s what.  Sweetie, once you went out sporting this face, we all got to see just how fantastic you can look when you pay the right person to make you up. Unfortunately for you, that means you’re going to have to pay that person in perpetuity. Whoever they are, best to bring them back into the fold, girl.

Unless of course the same person did this face for you, in which case they clearly have a drug or alcohol problem and can’t be relied on for consistent work. Best to let them go.

This concludes what we like to call “Contradictory Advice for Starlets.”

IN! Striking! When the hell is spring coming back so I can wear this color?

OUT! Matchy-match clothes;  honky-tonk makeup.



The Bitter Kittens all agreed that yes, Michelle Williams is still twee as fuck, but dammit, that floral getup was ADORABLE, meaning IN.

      Hmmmm…I like hte make-up here.  Looks young and fresh.  And I don’t mind the matching coat and dress, as she is channeling Audrye, and back in the early 60s, we used to call a matching coat/dress set an ensamble.  Sometimes they had a matching pill-box hat! 
      But I hate the shoes, hate the fit of said ensamble, and hate the way she often stands in front of the cameras pigeon-toed like a littel girl.  For those reasons…OUT!

      Gorgeous color, and it looks fabulous on her.  The dress and coat are to die for.  I like the shoes better in black than in the neutral color shown on the model.  Her makeup isn’t bad, it’s just not as dramatic as before.  I think she looks fresh and lovely.  Big, big IN on this one!

      Dress and coat – fabulous.  Makeup – fine.  Shoes – terrific.
      Minuses – the little girl pose (stop that!); hair in ponytail — since I saw you rock the Louise Brooks look, I want to see that more often!
      Overall – In.

    • Anonymous

      She’s wearing color.
      She PAID FOR HER CLOTHES. LV does not discount or lend (newly learned fact means I’ll be watching for LV). We all know she’s wealthy pre-acting money, so I appreciate she is paying for her own stuff instead of taking swag all the time.
      She’s apparently eating food! (I will be happy about this every time a starlet goes from frighteningly thin to merely very, very thin.)
      Her makeup is fine for this look — and it’s fine, period. The comparison link you provide is of a much heavier makeup scheme, which is a choice, but certainly not in itself so much better than merely enhancing her own beauty. Again, I’m not generally in favor of encouraging women to feel like they have to paint themselves heavily every time they make an appearance lest they not seem appropriately “done.”
      Though I do think she needs some jewelry.

      it’s a fabulous outfit, full stop. i wish she also didnt have to pee; then again, it must still be if madonna does something everyone else has to do it too. [except for me cos i did it beforehand or never wanted to do it in the first place.] then again, again, perhaps this one did it before madonna too, very preferable, certainly possible, & madonna is copying her the way she copied everyone else years upon years ago & in the way she is now running gaga down for copying her as gaga is becoming more popular than she. then again, again, again, i have lost my train of thought just a wee little bit until i have now finally remembered what the copied it actually is &, now that i’ve remembered, i’m hoping it’s all accidental by everyone. if not quite an accident! not in public at the very leastest least!

      great outfit, however. so great i dont even notice the makeup, in fact.

      edited to add:
      i like the model’s eye makeup. though i may be alone in that & i seriously doubt thats what you wanted her makeup artist to, um, imitate. if not copy.

      I do wish she could manage a real smile once in a while, but it seems she doesn’t do smiles. Like Posh.
      Except she’s no Posh, so she should probably find her own schtick.

      NOT a quibble is my hatred of those things that designers are now attaching to the soles of shoes at the toe.  They look ridiculous.  This shoe without those biscuity things would be gorgeous.  With them, they are just clownish.

    • Hope Leith

      Okay, so I’m alone in feeling that the bodice of the dress is really poorly fitted, and girlfriend needs to be wearing a (or a new) bra- a tiny girl like her should NOT be looking dumpy.  If this outfit is stiff and boxy on her, it would look dreadful on anyone with more curves.  And the shoes need to ditch those cookie-platforms.

      I saw this earlier and immediately thought “in.” Love how the color brings out here eyes. 

      I’m not keen on the matchy set and don’t like the coat as much as the dress. Still, it’s miles above most red carpet ensembles. One nitpick, it seems like she’s not confident in her stance, what with the knock-kneed pose and slight slouch.

      IN! Chic to the max!

    • VicD

      The dress and shoes are totally IN and the coat is totally OUT.  Although, she looks as good in that coat as anyone could; it’s just weird and boxy.   Love the color, and don’t mind the matchy matchy.

      You’re too fussy re: the make-up. She looks great in both places. C’mon guys . . . let’s just celebrate her being green! In.

      In–I didn’t even notice the make-up because the dress looks so good.

      I know that those quasi-platform shoes are all the rage but I think they look just plain awkward.  Love the styling otherwise, and I honestly don’t mind the makeup, or lack thereof.  The color is totally fab.  What bothers me is, again, the lack of jewelry.  What is this?  It can’t be “I’m skipping ornamentation when the economy is so bad, just to show I’m an empathetic star”, not when every other square inch is coddled in designer goods costing thousands.  Why leave this so unadorned?  You *DO* need some stinkin’ jewelry, honey.  However…….IN.

      In the bottom two photos: doesn’t she look like Catherine Middleton?

        Exactly what I was thinking. I actually appreciate that the make up is not severe, unlike her hair.

      It seems a little voluminous at the bottom, but overall great color and shape. IN.

      TOTAL IN.

      Definitely IN. Stunning, radiant color.
      But I hate how she is standing, awkward.

    • MinAgain

      I love the color and the shape.  My only qualm is that it appears a little too big for her, but that may just be the silhouette.  That said, I am tiring a little of the severe hair.

      In for the shoes alone.  Those are FAB.  I like the color of the dress, but not thrilled over the fit, or over the jacket.

      Out. Love the dress and coat, especially the color, as well as the shoes, but everything looks too big on her and girl needs more lift out of a bra if she’s even wearing one.

    • Tadiana Walton Jones

      I love the color but not so the stiffness and the bulk of the coat and dress.  OTOH, those are fantastic shoes.  IN (but not with a great deal of enthusiasm).

      I actually find the lack of jewelry more noticeable than the makeup… but I really like the look. In. I don’t have the same visceral reaction to the makeup that you two have — although it doesn’t look smashing, just eh.

      Though, the makeup was almost an out.  I have no problems with the dress or the coat.

      SO IN. I love the matchy coat and dress here–the military-ish detailing on the coat helps make it less aging, and she looks like a bit like a chic Royal in that first photo. A Royal cousin from space. Or Swintonia.

      I love this color on her (I’ve said before that if she’s going to wear color, she should definitely look into greens, navies, and aubergines), and I am okay with the makeup. I agree this look could have been done with a little more artistry, but if she went out in a face as heavy as the one you linked to every damn day she would start getting the same pancake face comments ERW gets.

      Probably my favorite look of this year. Gorgeous from head to toe. Yeah, facially she looks at if Helen Keller’s aunt with cataracts did her makeup but that’s a super minor infraction. Overwhemingly and permanently IN.

      OMG, a totally enthusiastic IN! The matchiness of the coat and dress are fine, and the makeup is fine too. Yes, the makeup is better in the red dress photo, but this isn’t bad. She’s got one of those “less is more” faces – she’s gorgeous without a lot of it!

      In. Though the make-up (or lack thereof) almost ruined it for me. I LOVE that shade of green though, so she’s safe. :)

      What’s wrong with her makeup? It looks fine to me.

      Her coat and dress remind me of a Young Edwardian I once had. How much does that age me?

      Oh, and IN.

      IN, the dress color is fabulous and those shoes are killer.  They outweigh the craptastic make up job.

      snooze. she needs some pizazz-makeup, jewelry, something to punch this up.
