Oscars In or Out: Rooney Mara in Givenchy Couture

Posted on February 26, 2012


We feel like this requires discussion.

Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture Collection

Sure, it’s weird and head-turning and eminently discussable and we would expect no less from the Audreybot at the Oscars. Two things, though.

1: The detail in the lower back looks like some sort of brace or bandage; and

2: Her tits look like they’re crying.

But the hair and makeup are stunning, we must say.

Kittens make the call:


Vote Now!


IN! Dramatic and weirdly gorgeous!

OUT! Creepy bride!


Oh, and Katy Perry’s Violet Beauregarde getup got a semi-enthusiastic IN from the minions.

    • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

      IN. Only she could wear this.

      • Tom Shea

        For the purpose of this discussion, I agree. IN.

    • Libby Rhoman

      So, so, In.  I really love her version of the gown and it suits her perfectly.  Her tits look far more comfortable than a few other pairs on the red carpet (coughViolaDaviscough).

      • Libby Rhoman

        Wait, do you mean they look like they are weeping? Or that they look uncomfortable?  I think I just now got that.

        But it is so dramatic and evocative.  Not  unexpected from the Bot.

        • Vodeeodoe

           I think they mean that the cut of the fabric over her boobs look like frowns, or sad faces.

      • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

        Agreed – In

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cortney-Dean/100002491593625 Cortney Dean

      I vote in. It wasn’t your standard gown and it fit with her Abudreybot persona. Yes, her boobs look like they are crying, but I think she (and maybe only she) can pull it off.

    • http://profiles.google.com/insertbrackets Tory Adkisson

      In! It’s delicate and interesting, and is more so the closer you look.

      • http://twitter.com/rgmx Mercy

        Yes, the detailing doesn’t really pop, but the overall effect is still lovely – bandages, odd boob area and all.  
        Girlfriend sure loves her cutouts.  Glad she wore the bangs tonight.  

    • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.com/ Cassie

      So IN. I love how she plays with a particular persona and I think she looks fierce as shit, despite the crying tits.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Elizabeth-Poytinger-Baumer/1516981341 Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

      I give her an IN.  But she is the only one who could work this look.

      • luciaphile

         I agree. In

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1406341157 Christopher Rogers

      1. That aspect of the design is interesting, and I feel injects some of the “disturbing and unconventional” qualities of the Givenchy label into an otherwise standard dress.

      2. Tits don’t always have to look “happy”, haha. I love when designers play with busts, especially on gowns.


    • http://profile.yahoo.com/R5SPO7OLLQU5LMGC557SHAVB5I Jenna

      It just looks weird.  I was really hoping she would show up in a WERQ-worthy ensemble (and with bangs swept to the side).  I can’t.  OUT.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      I’m not necessarily a fan of her look, but for what she does, there’s no denying she did it right for the Oscars. In.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      IN, it’s rooney mara oscar night mode

    • Carrie L. Boram

      Gak! No. Hate the boobflaps.

      • Celandine1

         Yeah it’s OUT. The boobflabs, yuck. But it looks so much better on Rooney than the model.

    • http://twitter.com/XTinaGB Chistina Bowen

      Fabulously dramatic, show stopper and its not generic :)

    • Carla Williams

      OUT. She was lifeless on the red carpet. 

    • Yosa Addiss

      It looks a lot better in the photos than it did on the red carpet.  I have been thinking about it, and I know I will talk about the dress- so in that way it is a winner.  But, I still vote out.  She could have picked a talk-about dress that was lovely, but she didn’t.

    • http://twitter.com/solidcurrency solidcurrency

      It washes her out and is ugly. OUT

    • jenno1013

      Out.  For exactly the reasons you specify:  crying tits and bandage back.  If it were hiked up an inch and a half in the front, maybe that would have saved it.

    • Cousin_Rose

      Didn’t like it but on seeing the runway version it’s an IN. On looking a fifth time, maybe I love it. It certainly isn’t ordinary

    • http://www.twitter.com/allforusophia AllForUSophia

      How can this be anything but IN?

    • http://twitter.com/Deac82 Mike M.

      In. It’s consistent and head-turning. The dress is a progression of everything else she’s worn this awards season.  Even though it’s not unexpected, she looks like a star (albeit in her weird,chilly way).

    • Rachel Moss

      IN, because it it strange and ethereal and she looks like a glamorous alien which is what you want. But really, I will cry if I have to see many more unsupported boobs on the red carpet. Small-breasted ladies, even you need to think about this, trust me!  I know the design of the dress is partly responsible for how saggy they look, but I agree with TLo that they look like they’re crying. Sad Pandas.

    • VioletFem


    • TieDye64

      IN. But only on her. Looks better on tv than the pics, I think.

    • Elaine Rodriguez

      In!  Gorgeous!

    • http://twitter.com/pag_baj Paige Boerman

      It works for her, but not the rest of the world. IN

    • http://twitter.com/jessicapippin Jessica Pippin


    • rumcg66

      IN. Some minor tit issues but they don’t really detract from the overall look, which is fabulous.

    • Shoelover1512

      I have to say OUT even though it pains me to do so. It just seems off.

    • http://twitter.com/vintagesewing VFL Miss Helenes

      Translates better in stills than on camera for film.  That being said, weird is a good word for it.  I just think the entire dress looks sad.  OUT.

    • http://twitter.com/terriblebeauty Pearse

      In, because I saw her moving in it. Pictures just don’t do it justice. 

      • Alisa Rivera

        I agree on the IN, this was much better on TV than it is in these photos.

    • http://angryfemur.tumblr.com Andrea Lane

      Oooh, in! I even like the crying boobs detail. Go figure.

    • Amy Ellinger


    • http://twitter.com/anacedillo Ana Cedillo

      soooo IN. there is no questioning this, she looks way better than that model too

    • http://twitter.com/bigknittrouble Big Knitting Trouble

      IN. But only on her; the runway model looks cray-cray.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/OC3CDATTS22HHJJ4HD5WL6LVIQ Hayley

      Hate the bang-helmet.  Love the red lips.  Initially hated the dress, but the more I look at it, the more inspired I think it is.  In.

    • Sara__B


    • Nanaia

      She’s too pale for this. She needs something for  a splash of color. OUT

    • http://twitter.com/annecara Anne-Cara Apple

      I want to love it, but something about the fit on top bothers me. I have to say Out.

    • MK03

      UGH. So over her.

    • serenitynow02

      Too much white; it’s blinding. No wonder her boobies are sad. Out from me.

    • http://twitter.com/yankeefoxtrot Alex McGeagh

      I don’t understand the comments about her boobs crying. They don’t look smooshed or uncomfortable to me.

      I’m gonna say in just because it’s quite striking on the Audreybot…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1344922354 Eric Scheirer Stott

      If you don’t study it at length it’s a beauty

    • http://profiles.google.com/katelynsypher Katie Sypher

      It’s an IN!

      Disappointing year, no? You know when Judy Greer looks like the hottest piece of ass walking the Oscars red carpet something’s not quite right…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=811053804 Stacy Parker Cole

      in but I thought she’d be better

    • zelavie

      Out.  Sad boobies.

    • Cynica

      At least the dress looks better than it did on the runway. I give it a meh.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396777506 Christin Pardy-Nosenchuk

      out.  Is this girl frigging allergic to goddamn jewelry? wtf?  She looks like she got TP’d.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1046681022 Paula Berman

      I totally thought “sad boobies” when I saw this. Your take on it is completely accurate, but hair and makeup are insufficient to save it. OUT.

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      Weepy boobs make it creep just into OUT territory, which is a shame because I love everything else about it.

    • leah besson

      out.  i love the dress in general, but it doesn’t fit her and it’s so predictable.  

    • velomango

      My favorite part – she’s wearing a gown from 2009. Rock on sister – way to avoid the pressure to wear the latest couture. In.

    • Pennymac

      OUT Too pale and bridal for the Oscars. And the fit is weird. And the hair reminds me of Sumo wrestler hair.

    • Hillary Matlin


    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_L6FKGKUXWF6QSWWYAHJZYKKI3E Adrian

      I’m down with crying tits. I mean, not for just anyone, but Audrey, yes. IN.

    • butterflysunita

      IN.  She looks lovely, though on the model that dress is absolutely hideous.  Looks like a ripped shower curtain liner.  

      • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

        That thing the model is wearing can’t even be called a dress. “Ripped shower curtain liner” indeed.

        Anyway, I think Rooney looks fab. Totally IN.

    • OhSayNow

      OUT. She looks like a moody, washed out mermaid.

    • andi56

      Eh. Comparing her to Audrey should be a crime punishable by death.

    • WritingWonder

      Torn on this one. It’s Givenchy.  Dress is very beautiful.  But, darlings, it DOES NOT FIT HER IN THE CHEST. It looks at least a size too large.  In one of her red carpet interviews, she said she only chose this dress THIS MORNING.  Clearly, there was no time to alter it to actually fit her.  Bad fit doesn’t show so much in these photos, but in the videos, it’s so clear the bodice just is way too loose and sloppy on her.  It was gapping all over the place, and just looked ill-fitting and sloppy.

      Because of crappy fit issues…an OUT.

    • Elizabetta1022

      In. But you’re right about her boobs. 

    • mommyca

      I love the back….. Disappointed at the boob effect….. I’m torn….. 

    • cindybeeintex

      IN! It’s floaty and gorgeous, and not a sequin in sight.

    • JuliaInBlack

      IN! At first glance it’s smooth and elegant then it turns to wait,WTF am I looking at? I like this combination.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

      Out. She’s getting exhausting. And I hate the bodice.

    • Anathema_Device

      Not loving the pleating on the bodice, but I like the overall look on her.

      In, but I can totally see why people wouldn’t care for it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/donedwards710 Don Edwards


      TLo, you guys can raise your eyebrows at her all you want, she’s proving she can pull off ANYTHING.

    • lalahartma

      She could have done better.  Out.

    • Lauren Maier

      IN.  She’s making it work better than the model.  

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I’ve noticed I never like what she’s wearing when she goes for the severe hair.  But bless her stylist for the lining. Nevertheless – OUT.

    • Kate McCain

      Out. When your first thought upon seeing this is how her boobies look sad, Out!

    • http://twitter.com/asciident Melissa Brogan

      I don’t like the dress, and I honestly don’t think she’s making it work. Of course her skin, makeup and hair are perfection, but the dress just isn’t doing it for me. OUT.

    • JenXer

      Even though I can’t stop seeing little nurses’ caps on her boobs I’m giving her an IN because she’s pulling it off

    • http://twitter.com/ElizabethWSVH Elizabeth Wakefield

    • Kristy Evans

      Yeah, the tit-wings are weird, but she looks pretty great. IN.

    • sagecreek

      Very in. Completely in. You can’t be much inner.

    • LAjane81

      Why can’t I vote? J’confuse. I vote out, for the record

      OUT. Hate it.

    • siriuslover

      out. I can’t get past the hanging boobs.

    • http://twitter.com/carelessriver Cassie (C.M.W.)

      At first I was on the fence. Then I saw the original dress. This take is an improvement, and the hair and makeup are KILLER. In.

    • Tam Duong

      IN. stunning as always

    • kagrrakid

      I guess IN… her tits do indeed look like they’re crying.. but I guess overall she’s workin’ it.

    • http://twitter.com/Eovaai S R

      OUT. Her boobs look awful.

    • unbornfawn

      She looks stunning from the neck up. The color works on her. The cut of the dress is a little weird. It is not doing her tits any favors. The back looks like something added at the end to keep it on her body. Based on the dress –  OUT

    • http://wipgirl.wordpress.com/ kristel

      I think it’s both dramatic and weirdly gorgeous AND creepy bride. I don’t really like the colour, but it still suits her. So IN I guess. 

    • Joyce VG

      YAWN. OUT.

    • saanrio

      IN.  Totally and completely IN.

    • http://twitter.com/TwiterlessTerri Terri

    • pawtley


    • Zippypie

      Her body looks like it’s melting.  Neck up, looks great.

    • Haley Buchanan

      IN.  It suits her. It has just the right balance of traditional, red carpet glamour and Audreybot, sci-fi weirdness.  Definite in.

    • Brenna McClellan

      OUT. Don’t like it. Face gorgeous, dress not interesting enough. 

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DSSSOKRSBEP7YR5XA52446SPOQ Mary

      In…I love it, except black would have been better.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      IN but it wasn’t my favorite or anything. I knew it was Givenchy as soon as I saw her and I am glad that she stuck with them since she has been wearing them so much and to great effect. I think it’s the color that I hate the most. 

    • LittleKarnak

      I say Out, I think I am just tired of her.

    • http://twitter.com/ClairRose483 Clair Ellis


    • R. L.

      OUT.  Face and hair are great but the dress is boring and saggy. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/misslauraschultz Laura Schultz

      OUT. Agree on hair and make-up, though

    • nosniveling

      in- looks way better on her than the model

    • Judy_J

      Out. Droopy fit in the bustline is unforgivable.

    • mozzer0906

      Out. Her tits make me sad, sad tits are never in.

    • IAmJ

      It’s an OUT for me after seeing it up close during her interview with Seacrest. The fit is really awful in the tit area. 

    • Violina23

      I want to say IN, but the boobs are so very, very sad…  so I’ll say IN, but because I feel like she needs a hug or something

    • leave_Blake_alone

      IN. This is not a look I would wear or one I would recommend for 99% of female stars but this is her thing, and the white makes a great contrast with her black hair and red lips. I actually kind of like the lower back thing.

    • understateddiva

      OUT for being expected.  I was hoping she’d show up in a pink or blue Oscar de la Renta and a big smile, just to mess with our heads.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

      Sad boobs. OUT!

    • guestela


    • butter nut

      IN! she looks fantastic.

    • quiltrx

      IN.  The front looks very Art Deco-ish, and the tits always looked like they were crying in that era, anyway.

      And the back is giving off a very LeeLoo Dallas vibe that I respond positively to. :)

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      I really don’t see anything horrifically bad about it.
      If anything, it’s a bit safe.
      Imagine if she wore the sheer version.

    • elzatelzabelz

      OUT- The bodice is terrible. Her chest looks like it is sinking. I hated it ont he red carpet and still hate it now hours later. I will give her a few points for branching out from black.

    • Amy Ethington

      If her boobs are crying, they are tears of joy because she looks stunning!

    • Charmaine Cropper


    • http://profiles.google.com/awilsongirl Amy Wilson

      IN. This dress on this woman in this style at this occasion is perfection.

    • snarkykitten

      I really like this! I think it fits the Audreybot perfectly

    • Monabel

      Not good enough.

    • PhillyDeb

      OUT.  The top does not look like it fits, I hate the droopyness of the boob area, do not like the zipper at all, and the color is too washed out on her.  The draping of the bottom is beautiful however.  I keep looking at it and trying to like it due to its originality, but I just cannot like it.

    • NCDFan

      It looks like an old fashioned girdle. OUT

    • tressexpress3366

      In. not great, but considering ‘her’ it could  have been so much worse (creepy, sad, awful, disturbing, goth, horrible, etc) that this is fine- sure it looks like a nightgown + bandages but….. we were spared worse.

    • NasserShaheen

      In. It works on her.

    • bitterk

      Creepy old lady in a nursing home wandering the halls in her wedding dress from the 30s

      IN. I mean it’s Audreybot in Givenchy Couture for Christ’s sake!

    • Farthingale

      Big win for the hair and makeup. Breast tears steal a few perfection points.

    • benjamin478

    • http://twitter.com/AndrewHStein Andrew Stein

      out. harsh and unpretty.

    • annaplurabelle

      IN. It’s perfect for her and you can see how much she loves wearing it.

    • Rrroza

      IN. Wish I could see it in real life. Can’t see the subtle details

    • AzulFashion

      IN.  At first it looked too pale and frail, but after consideration, I think that is why it works. Such a beautiful contrast to her severe hair color and style.

    • CozyCat

      In.  Risk taking on the red carpet should be encouraged–there’s too much safe reliance on stylists.  And in this case it fits her personal style and works.

      But I will say that this only works because she is, well, let’s say it, small busted.  It actually enhances her figure for that reason.  Which is what clothes should do.

    • http://twitter.com/susanpcollier Susan Collier

      There is a face on the front of the dress, but I think it’s a pleased look, not crying eyes.
      And the back represents the face mask on a football helmet, clearly an homage to the Giants-football-owning relatives for whom Rooney was named.
      Odd dress. I’m torn. Hell, OUT.

    • SatelliteAlice

      Out.  She has saggy unhappy boobs in this.  Who wants that?

    • Olggie

      In. Striking.

    • tired_mommy

    • http://twitter.com/democracydiva Democracy Diva

      Out. It’s not weird, it’s just predictable and ugly.

    • lucasuk82

      Out. She looks like melting ice cream.  I had really high hopes for her after all the strange and wonderful things she’s pulled out during the “dancing for Grandma” for GWTDT. Sadness.

    • http://twitter.com/jennsaysmeow Fifi LaRoux

      I can overlook the sad nipples. IN.

    • Sarafina Angstadt-Leto

      IN. I really like it on her

    • crackineggs

      In. Out. No, in.  I can’t decide -wish I’d seen it in motion.  Och, I’ll give her an In. Sort of.

    • Glynis Fediuk

      Undoubtedly in.

    • CassandraMortmain

      She’s too young to have saggy boobs with eyebrows.

    • Zyxomma

      IN! The detail on the lower back does not look like a brace/bandage, unless you’re referring to the thermal bandages costume Milla Jovovich wore in The Fifth Element (it was Gaultier, as were all the costumes in that fun film). Rooney Mara looked spectacular, and should have won the Oscar. Who cares about Meryl Streep’s performance as Ronald Raygun in a dress? No one liked the movie, and most of us won’t see it until it’s on the small screen.

      Meh. The back is weird. It makes it look like the bra she clearly is not wearing is showing.  The color seems in danger of fading away.  But, she is wearing the hell out of it, and she’s got her stylist working overtime.  Personally I’ll be glad for her when this GWTDT publicity tour is done and she could, for example, find a hair color that doesn’t make her look ill.

      IN.  This suits Rooney Mara’s carefully crafted weird public persona, and hair and makeup are indeed excellent.  Karlie Kloss looks like a consumptive wearing the runway version with the awful greige eye makeup.

      I thought she looked smashing. IN.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Big In, one of the looks of the night for me.  Her bangs are finally growing out enough that she can wear more than just severe or avant-garde fashions.  This is a nice transition from extreme to feminine.  But I still love most everything she’s worn this season and I really love how she’s made the most of her role’s severe haircut, fashion wise.

    • dharmabum8

      In, in, in. By far the most interesting starlet in a sea of blah, fashion wise.

    • PeaceBang

      She looks like she’s being dragged into a pool of sparkly white quicksand. And I love that. IN.

      OUT. Her tits look really sad and her hair pisses me off.

    • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

      I have to give it an “out.” I like it except for that weird top. The see-through lace wide straps and the flapped bodice pieces look weird, and take away from the dress’s overall appearance.

    • nannypoo

      I don’t like anything about this. Her makeup looks harsh and the dress is droopy. 

    • MzzPants

    • MilaXX

      IN, but I was hoping she would bust out a color that wasn’t black, white or red.

    • sk8tfan

      Out. It’s pouchy in the tummy and she’s too young for that, and it doesn’t fit across the chest. And buy/ borrow some damn jewelry already.

      “2: Her tits look like they’re crying.” omg dying. I thought something similar but not nearly as awesome. I vote OUT.

    • leilah

      IN.  The back bracing is interesting (a fully-acceptable term — think of it as clever reinforcement), tho’ it looks a little bathing suit-like; but without it, the sides might’ve hung like Michael Costello’s last dress on PR…and it’, too.  The bodice is a little droopy for sure, but when paired with the lacy detail, hair and makeup it has a vintage look.

    • StrandedFashionista

      I, I can’t. I’m sorry, but OUT. 

    • http://twitter.com/wednesdaydreams Natalie

      OUT. The fit is terrible and she looks like a walking corpse.

    • AWStevens

      She should have just put a wife-beater tank top on a white skirt.


    • holdmewhileimnaked

      love it other than the boobbrows.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      It’s weird but still pretty, just like Rooney herself. Plus, it looked lovely in all her closeups during the ceremony. IN.

    • Sarah Lynnae

      I almost like it, but the top whispers “swimsuit” to me, so… not in.

    • k op

       In!  Love it!

    • j_anson

      IN. Man, I feel exactly the same way with this as I do about the Michelle Williams dress. It’s not a home run, but it suits her and it’s getting the job done.

    • berkeleygirl

      From the neck up, the best look of the night… Below the neck, it did not live up to its possibilities.  On the red carpet, she fessed up to only picking the dress that morning.  Maybe could have worked with a good fitting, but it didn’t totally work for me.  

    • sleepycat

      In looks great on her.

    • http://blue-again.myopenid.com/ blue

      Again, also not what I’d anticipated, but I think this was the right choice for our Audreybot here (and folks were especially making the compare/contrasts tonight!). I will say, this is too much dress for such a slip of a guhl, all half-naked waist-up and spilling out about the legs, and I want to hike it up at the bodice, but overall, it was a smart move. IN.

    • demidaemon

      OUT. The weird seaming in the bodice and around her nether regions is not pretty. Also, this is a far cry from the runway dress, and its toned down version is no better. It’s a runway only dress, not a red carpet dress.

      • marco5ny

        Double out!  This dress moves her flat bangs to her chest which are equally tiresome.

    • greatscoutm

      Out.  I was disappointed in this look. I have been loving her RC looks of the last few months, but this (which looks better in the still photos than it did on our TV) made her look washed out and seemed a little ill fitting in the bodice.  I agree about the bandaged back.
      Makeup–big IN.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/GTG3A5BVL3JGIFT5M4MSPWYNCM Mathilde

    • Heath Sledge


    • http://www.facebook.com/tom.r.markiewicz Tom Markiewicz

      stunning, and a perfect culmination for the warpath she’s been making through fashion in the past months.

    • tvmovielover

      In because it did look better on tv despite the weird bust (it really does need to be hiked up) and better than the model and was an appropriate finish to her award and movie premiere looks this season.

    • PrincessSlaya

      Her sternum is too “starvation victim” to be on display.

    • KathKo

      She looks stunning.

    • Vodeeodoe

      She’s hot as always. I would love to see her tone down the heavy contrast every now and then. Maybe a lighter wig and lipstick. That being said, I love that she wears COLOR on her lips!!! I am so over the nude to light lips on the ladies. Contrast and severe is kind of Rooney’s fashion thing right? I love that weird back brace design to contrast with the feminine front. I wish I’d seen more of it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Cookie.Taz Aisa Ginger Jake Psenicnik

      out, the first thing i thought when i saw this actually was “it looks like her tits are crying” i like the back though

    • Vodeeodoe

      Her dress and the runway dress are like second cousins. Hers looks very little like the sheath-y, Star Trek hot girl alien, see-through thang on the carpet. I think hers is much more wearable and feminine. Although Joanna Coles would still be upset that you’d have to wear it without a bra.

    • JustJenn142

      I wish they had fixed the top of the dress or did something so it didn’t look so droopy/odd. The bottom half looks stunning and from the clavicle up, she looks stunning…it is just the breast section that looks weird.  I’ll still give her an in.

    • tylka5

      It’s a gorgeous dress, but I do wish that new actresses didn’t have to show off 90% of their bodies under sheer getups in order to be noticed. Or that actors would have to wear sheer tuxes to events. Either way would work for me.

    • zmayhem

      I’m gonna split my vote: Creepy Bride – IN. Love the weird floaty decaying purity elegance of it, handwaving away the less-than-perfect fit since (a) she picked it out that morning, and (b) she still looks better than the model), and don’t mind the lack of jewelry — her hair, eyes, brows and lips are so dramatic and arresting that I don’t mind. I actually kind of love that everything from the neck down is filmy and insubstantial. She looks like Miss Havisham in the Val Lewton adaptation of “Great Expectations” that sadly exists only in my mind (or possibly the Oscar Wilde/Aubrey Beardsley stage production).

      Probably wouldn’t be anything near an in for any other wearer, and probably not an in for any viewer who doesn’t already love that aesthetic, but for this woman in this aesthetic at this moment, IN IN IN oh dear me yes IN. Now I’m going to retire to my decrepit fainting couch and contemplate her look and slip into an absinthe-infused fever dream.

    • aimee_parrott

    • fiestyfashionfem

      It’s an IN – because she is lovely and well-styled and many parts of the gown are gorgeous – but you can absolutely tell she picked it the morning of and had very little time to modify/fix the bodice.

      And a vast improvement over the runway version.

    • kentiesgirl

      This one is so close it’s giving me a headache. I like the back detail, and it is ‘her’ dress, but anything that makes a girl that young and fit look like her boobs are falling off, especially at the Oscars, gives me pause. I say in. But it could’ve been IN. This is why we need to be able to wear bras designers.

      Love the hair and makeup as well. Anything other than sleek would’ve outed this one, IMHO.

      Out. I love the bottom 1/3 and I love her hair and makeup, but everything in between is looking disturbingly “Post-op” to me, like at any moment her stitches could open up and she could start bleeding from the nipples. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZMU2QQUTAUEPU23MUTZBQ5W2PI Peter

      No. No no no no. 

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      IN! Creepy Bride, yes but it’s still IN!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emily-Smith/12431153 Emily Smith

      In but she should never do interviews she’s awkward as shit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1000277822 Annie Hamel

      Out, but not by much.  I’m just glad she did not do a black dress.  The bondage thing is getting real old, real fast.

    • aristida_girl

      Out…although I like her a lot, the dress looks strange on her and the details are lost against the whiteness of her skin..not good

    • sockandaphone

      it looks better on pictures because on tv all i could see was those sad boob windows. the cutouts were just weird. out.

    • RoxieRider

      I guess on balance I don’t especially like it, but she looks beautiful and interesting and striking. In.

    • SpcilK

      IN, Love her in this!

    • SneakyKitty

      In.  It’s strange and interesting without being over the top.

    • Ennovi_R


    • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

      Mostly In.  I’m glad she had some lining under it, and although the bodice reminds me of sleepy eyes, it actually gives her a bosom.  She’s small and delicate enough to pull off this enchanted look. Hair and makeup are lovely.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jacoryd JaCory Deon

      It needed to be taken in at the sides slightly but she looks great.  Whoever did the makeup and hair beat the hell out of her — flawless!

    • Laylalola

      In. No way it’s an out — but I am so tired of her heavy eyebrows and harsh makeup knowing what a stunner she is/was before Dragon.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I’m MELTING!  I’m MELTING! 

    • altalinda

      Out.  I don’t mind the back (it’s kind of interesting) but the lack of color detracts, and the eyelids for her breasts are a miss.  Yawn.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Out. Too weird.

    • carpediva

      IN. It’s so Rooney. Which is kind of amazing to say/think given how short a time that she’s been in our fashion consciousness.  But unlike Blake Lively or Chloe Sevigny or other starlets they try to shove down our throats as fashionistas, I find myself always wondering how Rooney plans to turn it out on a given night.

    • ringthing

      Out. She’s worn so many sharp and edgy looks since her movie came out that it’s extra disappointing that this looks so lacklustre.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Clydette-Wantland/673315286 Clydette Wantland

      No thanks.

    • Louise Bryan

      In.  I’m glad it got lined between the runway and the red carpet.

    • PhoebePowers

      As IN as it gets. The look of the night, no question about it. Stunning.

    • chitowndg


    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Hank-DeCat/100001190387982 Hank DeCat

      Reminds me of one of those toilet paper dresses you make at bridal showers. So, OUT. 

    • AlexisPayne


    • Emmyllou

      Out. It’s a beautiful piece, and I love her looks, but it actually seems as if the dress is too big for her. It’s just (dot, dot, dot) HANGING there.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      IN.  I love the back.  Agree about the sad boobs, though.

    • annieanne

      It’s totally her.

    • Jessica Mann Gutteridge

      The whole dress is dragging her down. I wish it fit better, then it would be stunning.

      Love her shiny hair and the severity of it, but I don’t care for the length of the bangs. The makeup is perfection, and her eyes are just gorgeous. I do really love the white gown/shiny dark hair/red lips kind of glamour.

    • formerlyAnon

      IN. Big in. The front bodice is very reminiscent to me of the ’20s/30s but just reminiscent – not a period piece, and she has the look (meaning, lack of giant boobs and a small frame) for that reference.

      If I have a criticism it’s that a skosh (or two skoshes) less fullness at the hem/train would have been more appropriate as well as harmonizing better with the brace-y look of the lower back.

    • ArchaicSmile

      I’m not overly fond of the gown, but from the neck up she looks lovely. Even though she looks like Spock’s little sister.

    • PhillipWilde

      It’s just weird enough to be perfect for her. IN.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1052062518 Megan Moore

      Out. She looks too Amelie. But not in a good way. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JSGAZPEESHQT47ATH55GNOHHBY Erin

      IN.  A perfect capper for her Audreybot season.

    • Candigirl1968

      In.  She is owning that dress.

    • greyhoundgirl

      I love the detail in the back and how she changed it from the runway look.  But the front is a little…hangie.  I still give her an IN though.

    • Stefanos Mantyla

    • mustard_stain

      IN. She might be a robot with no feelings whatsoever, but it works on her. 

    • melizer


    • thebitterkitten

      eh I guess I vote whatever the majority is voting.  I don’t really have an opinion either way.

    • Lisa

      IN!  See, when I hate on her, it’s for her tired Marilyn Manson schtick.  Her Audrey schtick, on the other hand, doesn’t bother me one bit – if the girl can work it, more power to her.  I thought she looked fantastic!

    • http://twitter.com/TigerLaverada TigerLaverada

      Her face looks fab, but the bodice of that dress looks like a mistake, sort of like lapels gone wrong. Still, IN, because she’s wearing the shit out of it.

    • Shannon Maxham

      She’d look even better if someone inflated her chest cavity. Not necessarily her boobs, but she looks awful….concave.

    • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

      Out.  Color is awful on her; hair and makeup are what she always wears.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

      IN.  I really expected to see her in the black J. Mendel that Nina Dobrev wore to EJ’s party.  This is almost ethereal for her.  I could also see this dress being an ‘IN’ on Cate Blanchett, but she’s probably the only other person who could wear this.

    • BrightsideSusan

      I thought it looked like they have little hoodies. 

       She looked beautiful!  IN. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/vpoppy1 Valerie Poppy

      Meh, the back is very pretty. But that’s about all I can say.

    • up with pod people

      Out. Too much titscrepancy! Three titlayers!

    • Emily Scott

      Love this. IN. The modifications from the runway version are terrific.

    • malvernite


    • marywv

      Oooh… it pains me but OUT.

    • CCDilg


    • hearkentoit

      I love it. It’s just the right nod to Oscars glamour without losing her signature style. It’s like a beautiful classic gown, but made of cobwebs and hospital gauze. Perfect for this girl. IN.

    • Northern_Light_27

      IN. Just stunning.

    • Anonymoth

      Gorgeous. This dress suits her perfectly. IN.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7NGUZXK7KI3C3FX2YWBWDK3XCU Trixie

      SO IN.  

    • Kristen Wirick

      She looks a bit ghostly, yet seductive and beautiful. I love it. In.

    • http://twitter.com/pointlesswords jaymeglynn

      I really really love it, and she’s making me love her. She has powers beyond that of normal humankind.

    • MissAnnieRN


    • elizonthelam

      Perfect hair and make-up do not make up for the weepy tragedy that is the bodice. OUT!

    • Sophie Collier

      IN.  It’s just weird enough.

    • mike__tv

      NO argument, IN! Now discus the leg! 

    • http://twitter.com/Unclassical Alexandria N

      creepy bride OUT! why? because A. she doesn’t look pretty (though she does look eye catching) B. she doesn’t look attractive (just thin and tall) C. she doesn’t look snow white pale, but sickly instead. not the right shade of white for her apparently 

    • sleah_in_norcal

      INININ.  the audreybot is forever.  but if i see another white dress on anyone but her….
