Even though Rooney Mara has taken a hiatus from her dark red carpet days promoting "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," we still associate the actress with her goth looks from last year's premieres. Lest you think the whole queen of darkness thing was just a phase, Ms. Mara stepped out yesterday in one of her most austere looks yet.
The 27-year-old attended a charity gala during the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival wearing a dress that definitely warranted a second glance. The black, sleeveless number featured an entirely sheer bodice with a single strip of fabric to cover her chest. We're sure double-sided tape was involved, but it's still not exactly the best way to avoid a wardrobe malfunction amidst glaring flashbulbs.
To add to the somber effect, Rooney, never one to smile much, had on a particularly cheerless expression yesterday. Maybe it's time for another injection of color into her wardrobe? But don't think we're going to be the ones to tell her -- even the petite actress' co-star Channing Tatum considers her the most "terrifying person" he's ever met.
On second thought, do as you please, Rooney. We, er, support you...
