Rooney Mara certain about premiere gown

Rooney Mara insists the white gown she wore to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo premiere was "the first" she tried on.

The actress wowed at the recent world premiere of the eagerly-anticipated film, which was held in London. She portrays computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, who has a punky aesthetic. Rooney ditched the tattoos, piercings and shaved hair for the event and instead opted for a glamorous white Givenchy gown.

"It was the first dress I tried on. I picked it out with the help of a friend," she explained to the British edition of Grazia magazine.

The pal is thought to be stylist Ryan Hastings, who has also worked with Blake Lively.

Although Rooney looked glamorous on the red carpet, her choice of a plain white gown with lace detailing and open back was still edgy.

She explained it will take her a while to leave Lisbeth's look behind completely.

"It was a big transformation process getting into Lisbeth's character. But it's much harder coming out of her style than getting into it. There is still a de-gothing period going on!" she laughed.
