Some of you have written to me comparing Rooney Mara's white Givenchy to Victoria Beckham's glorified housecoat at this event in 2008. Click here for a refresher.

Sort of.

But this is infinitely superior, non? That zipper detail is amazing. And the winged shoulders too. Also the open back and the strap across the neck, see? I don't love the ruffle effect of the hem along the inside of her legs and would have preferred a straight cut all the way down, but overall, in combination with the makeup and the mega dark lip, and the simple pulled back hair -- instead of that dreadful old lady updo Posh opted for back then -- it was well done by Rooney as co-chair of punk night.

PS. Do they even bother bringing her anything that isn't black or white? What would happen if she was presented something in, say, like, green? Would she run out of the room?
