Style on Trial: Rooney Mara at the premiere of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Rooney Mara Girl With the Dragon Tattoo premiere

We’re troubled.

The trend for being “edgy” by wearing dresses that are little more than a few scraps of fabric held together with tulle and a prayer is spreading to the red carpet.

Here’s Rooney Mara wearing one such dress at the premiere of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She looks almost as concerned as we are that it’s going to fall right off her, doesn’t she?

Still, maybe you love these dresses? Maybe you’d like to speak in this one’s defence? Is so, now’s your chance…

    Is that the evening version companion to the dress in last week’s “wear or die?”

    The dress would be so lovely if the lower part would be just a normal, ankle length skirt.

    The white dress she wore a couple of days ago was a bit edgy, but still remained absolutely stunning and glamourous. This is just silly.
