Was Rooney Mara's Balenciaga Better on or Off the Runway?
In one showstopping moment, Rooney Mara hit the red carpet at the Trash premiere at the Rome Film Festival, giving us a glimpse of Balenciaga Spring '15 in real life. She's not the first star to bring a hot-off-the-catwalk creation to the red carpet, but she may just be the perfect choice to bring this particularly moody Balenciaga two-piece out for the first time.
Her striking, darker sense of glamour makes her a natural for carrying off the sultry crop top and sheer skirt. And, while the runway version comes with a pair of fashion-forward flats, Rooney played the part of dutiful Hollywood actress and dressed hers up with a pair of classic black heels. So, did she do it justice? That's up to you — scroll through for both a glimpse of the look on the runway and an all-angles view of Miss Mara before you decide.
