We’ve always pegged Rooney Mara to be the kind of girl who is not afraid to wear edgy and unconventional dresses. This actress is so effortless in her own style that she can really make any kind of clothes look couture.

At the 100th anniversary celebration of the Maison Cartier’s emblem, Panthère de Cartier, the 29-year-old actress wore a Givenchy spring 2015 dress that showed off a bit of cleavage and some more skin through sheer lacy panels on both the top and the skirt. The dress itself was actually a pretty simple LBD, but Rooney was able to make it look a little more interesting.

For a fiercer vibe, the actress styled with sleek hair and flawless makeup finished with bold berry-hued lipstick, creating a romantic goth look. We absolutely love the styling, but the shoe choice could be better. While the Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” sandals are very classic and are popular among celebrities, Rooney’s pair looks a little too bland with the black dress. This outfit would be a hundred times edgier and more fabulous if she wore more adventurous heels.
