Rooney Mara Went the Sheer Route in Balenciaga

By

Over the weekend at the Rome International Film Festival, the queen of monochrome (and severe buns) graced the red carpet for the premiere of Her and ditched her go-to black for an intricate white creation from Balenciaga's spring 2014 collection. Mara looked light and airy in a strapless, form-fitting lace dress, which she wore with a sheer, cocoonlike cape. She then continued her white theme with strappy B Brian Atwood sandals, and only added contrast to her look with dark red lips that matched the carpet. She swept her hair into a tight half-’do and, despite the fact that she wasn't wearing black, channeled some serious Loki vibes. It must be a mix of the dark hair, gaunt expression, and captivating flourish of that translucent cape.
