Dear Rooney Mara,
As you've been making press rounds to promote your new movie, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," we've been tracking your style, and honestly, we've been a little... non-plussed by it.
But today was the final straw: you hit up a photocall in Berlin wearing what looks like a gray sports bra, a knee-length black skirt and a headband.
We have to say something.
Some of your dresses are just kind of mousy, like the monochromatic Givenchy cut-out gowns you seem to like. Others look like, well, trash bags designed by Ozzy Osbourne.
Even Daniel Craig has more interesting style than you, sometimes. (Although to be fair, we never pass up a chance to stare at Daniel Craig.)
We get that the whole "Dragon Tattoo" thing calls for a stark Scandinavian aesthetic to go with your mod pixie cut. Obviously, we don't think you should be slipping into some Betsey Johnson ruffles or, like, Versace for H&M.
But Rooney, we think you can keep your style cold and "Swedish" while still being an interesting dresser. Take a page from Kristen Stewart, who successfully merges vampire-bride edginess with couture that's fun to view on the red carpet.
You actually used to look like Kristen when you had long hair -- and we think you can make this work for you.
Kristen wears all of your favorite colors -- black, tan, gray -- but with a hint of drama and elegance that keeps the gothic verve while adding a dose of sex appeal.
You're gorgeous, Rooney, and we love your mod look. Here's one way we think you could nail it even better.
Just our two cents.
Check out Rooney's looks from the "Dragon Tattoo" press rounds below, and also, some K. Stew dresses we think Rooney could look seriously glam in.
