Oscars 2012: Guess the Gown

Rooney Mara

Since becoming the girl with the dragon tattoo, Rooney Mara has transformed from an unknown ingenue into one of the most talked about stars on the red carpet thanks to her nominations for Best Actress for her role in Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Sheer panels, dramatic cutouts, heavy embellishment have been details Mara has favored since her sudden introduction to the award show circuit.
