Oscars 2012 Worst Dressed: Rooney Mara Looks Dull & Boring

Photo Credit: WENN

Some might see this look as classy, but Rooney Mara is simply too pasty for a white dress like the one she wore on tonight’s red carpet. The “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” star definitely needs to screw the fancy Italian designer names & start by adding more color & edgier styles to the mix—even for fancier events like the Academy Awards.

Didn't she have a horrible super-short fringe and half-shaved head in GWDT? Perhaps she's gradually transitioning from that style into something else instead of opting to extensions/a weave.

Not a fan, she is ok, I don't really like her type of beauty.

I love the dress but it doesn't fit her well, it makes her torso look much bigger then her legs. Still she was one of the best dressed imo.

And now we know why she generally wears black. The white with her skin tone makes her stick out in a bad way.

she definitely did some edgy type stuff(or at least stuff that seemed edgy for red carpet...) during some of events/photo stuff/award ceremonies the last whatever number of months.

but i guess she doesn't want to pull that move all the time/and it's really not surprising to go a bit more trad for the big oscar thing.plus everyone wants to leave 'edgy' behind... ;)

this gonna sound/insane/pretentiousness or just boring that i'm quoting this/but let's go...

If her glam squad’s intention is to shock and awe—they’re succeeding. In a good way of course, as Rooney Mara is quickly becoming a breath of fresh beauty air.

Mara exudes this sophisticated, edgy, seriously chic energy brought forth through her amazing red carpet style, complemented by her bare-bones approach to beauty.

Dare we say it—we even fancy the fringe! Yes, it’s harsh, but it happens to be the pièce de résistance that contributes to her successfully standing out in the crowd.

Isn’t it great to see someone not try to be something they’re not?

Everyone can’t be blonde, bubbly, and tanned to perfection; The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress takes the road less traveled with her look—and we wish a few more starlets would follow suit.

Who would you like to see tone down their look on the red carpet?

Looks like a boy in a dress.

Do not understand people who find her attractive.

Is it just me or it looks like she's still playing Lisbeth until now.
