Rooney Mara began her journey down Dragon Tattoo's red carpet at the film's December premiere wearing a Givenchy Couture white mesh-and-lace gown. How fitting, then, that the actress should bookend that experience with another wedding-worthy white look at the Oscars from the same Parisian house—especially when everyone (except us) expected Mara to grace the Academy Awards in an edgy Lisbeth Salander-inspired black number.
Mara's white gown features a figure-hugging silhouette topped by an architecturally detailed bust and sheer, illusion straps. This sleek gown by Peter Langner (right) similarly accentuates a bride's curves, flowing gracefully into an equally dramatic train. Though less structured than the star's couture creation, Langner adds interest to his design's neckline with contours of metallic embellishments. For women looking to marry fashion-forward style with Oscar-worthy glamour on their wedding day, Mara's high-fashion pick translates into obvious bridal inspiration.
