Yesterday evening fans flooded the Odeon Leicester Square in order to get a glimpse of new star Rooney Mara. However, what they received was an abundance of film critics, celebrities and fans of the Stieg Larsson book which not only added glamour but glitz to the evening too.
Co-star Daniel Craig (who has not been since out much since his secret wedding to actress Rachel Weisz earlier this year) was on top form looking every inch of his Bond pseudonym whilst Mara shone in a captivating Givenchy Couture backless white floor length gown.
Looking a million miles away from her dark heroine, computer-hacking, character Lisbeth Salander whom adorns tattoo’s, piercings and stark clothing in the film Mara , 26, wowed crowded in her white beaded dress with cut-out panel detailing. Her co-star Craig, 46, who plays journalist Mikael Blomkvist, however failed to brave the cold wearing a mid-length leather jacket.
Other co-stars to attend included Joey Richardson, Yorick Van Wageningen and Steven Berkoff and Geraldine James, alongside director David Fincher. Whilst celebrities to adorn the red carpet also came in the form of an engaged Peaches Geldof – looking particularly stunning in a full length strapless black gown – and Made in Chelsea stars Gabriella Ellis and Francesca Hull.
The Girl With The Dragoon Tattoo is released in the UK on Boxing Day.
