And an awesome knotted updo.

Awards-season fashion is always exciting when Rooney Mara is in the mix. Need proof? The starlet arrived on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday evening in a sheer white gown by Givenchy Haute Couture that definitely had us doing double takes. The actress, who loves a risky hairstyle, upped the drama with a daring 'do to top off her cool look.

Mara is nominated for best supporting actress for her work in Carol, putting her up against the likes of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rachel McAdams, Alicia Vikander and Kate Winslet. This is her second chance at an Oscar; in 2011, she was nominated for best actress for her role in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

The 88th Academy Awards — hosted by Chris Rock — airs live Sunday, Feb. 28, at 5:30 p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
