While Rooney’s styling, in the form of a tight topknot and classic black courts, added to the gothic effect, the dress itself was decidedly girly with delicate embroidery and party dress-style sleeves.
For the photocall earlier in the day, Ms Mara looked ready for business in a Balenciaga look from the Resort 2013 collection. Cherry red lips and a centred-parted sleek hairstyle completed the look.
