Someone, for the love of Alexander Wang, teach that girl how to stand!
In the course of this somewhat rant-y blog post, we shall prove to you why Rooney Mara‘s poor posture is preventing her from definitively beating Scarlett Johansson as the best-dressed person period at the Rome Film Festival premiere of Spike Jonze‘s Her.
Given: Rooney Mara in Balenciaga Spring 2014 and Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana, same season. Rooney arguably has the better look — it’s definitely the more fashion-forward choice — but she’s not exactly wearing it with the confidence it deserves, which is a bummer of huge proportions. The stark white is beautiful with her coloring, and anyone with a cape attached to her dress should be zooming around pretending to be a superhero. Instead, she’s hunched over with a dour expression on her extremely well-made-up face.
The difference is even more glaringly clear when you compare the two photos in which both ladies have their hands clasped in front of them: With her swingy cheerleader pony and short flip-y dress, ScarJo knows she looks good, and that translates to pushed-back shoulders and a pushed-out chest.
Moral of the story: A very pretty girl in a very pretty dress can look better than another very pretty girl in an even prettier dress because the second girl doesn’t know how to fake self-assurance. In other words: Act, Rooney Mara, act!
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
