Fugger: Rooney Mara

Cannes Fugs and Fabs and Ass Grabs: Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara

I just thought you might want to open the day with a dash of elegance, before we dip into the muck of the Billboard Music Awards.

The Girl with the Fug Tattoo: Rooney Mara

Well, the good news is that her body survived the shark attack:


Even if her tunic did not.

Fugs and Fabs: Rooney Mara

This post is a Tale of Two Very Different Looks. This first is CLASSIC Rooney Mara:

Rooney Mara arrives at the premiere of "Trash" during Rome Film Festival **USA ONLY**

Weird, dark,  bare-midriff-ed, unflattering in an intentional, expensive-looking way. Sort of…Trapped in A Dragon Tattoo. If someone asked me to predict what Rooney Mara would wear to any given red carpet, this would be close enough.

Her photocall look, on the other hand, is in many ways a far, far better thing:

Fug Effects

ROONEY: I can’t look.

CATE: Why, pet?

ROONEY: Look, I don’t know whether people voted that outfit Fug or Fab yet, but I just feel like maybe I didn’t think this through.

CATE: What, dear? Your outfit?

ROONEY: Everything. The outfit. How the outfit would look standing next to you. The fact that our skin looks the same age even though you’re 16 years older than I am, and I didn’t even think to bring a notebook to write down how the hell you DO THAT.

CATE: Sunscreen. And also I marinate in awesome sauce every night for an hour while I read scripts.

ROONEY: You do?

CATE: No. I’m kidding. I marinate in it all the time. It’s called my DNA. Or maybe it’s four bottles of really good wine. I’ll never tell.

ROONEY: I should have worn a real skirt.

CATE: It’s good advice. But listen, I have a checkered history, Roo. I have worn all kinds of things that might not be real skirts. I’m still not sure I didn’t accidentally wear someone’s granny’s afghan. The key is to act like it’s a real skirt, and like you don’t give a toss if it’s not, because whatever is going on inside your head is more interesting than what’s happening on your body and people should FEEL that.

ROONEY: You make it sound so easy.

CATE: It comes with age and wisdom. And also probably the sauce. Or the wine.

ROONEY: Maybe I’ll try the wine first and see.

CATE: Yes. Baby steps. Get sauced however you can.

Well Played, Rooney Mara

This is the one of the conventionally sexiest things she’s probably ever worn. This is literally the only time I can EVER say, “I could imagine that outfit Rooney Mara’s wearing on Kim Kardashian.” It’s true:

And while “sexy” isn’t my Number One Requirement for anyone  — other, perhaps, than my Lovahs — and certainly not for someone whose overall mien is so intellectual, I actually think it looks well on her. (Not that she can’t BE sexy; I do recommend Side Effects.) It’s just WEIRD to see her in something that isn’t all Architectural Sculptural Directionalism — and in fact I was going to put it up vote because of that. But you know what? We can all use a change now and then. Keep changing it up, sister.
