Mia Wasikowska's 2013 Venice Film Festival Dress Channels The Little Mermaid (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

We've been a fan of Mia Wasikowska ever since she played our heroine Jane in the film "Jane Eyre" so when we see the actress on a red carpet, we take notice.

The 23-year-old showed Carey Mulligan who's boss at the 2013 Venice Film Festival premiere of "Tracks" on Thursday wearing a glamorous lace mermaid gown which showed off the Aussie's svelte frame.

While we love Mia's goth Nina Ricci look, we can't help but think she was influenced by her dark role in the mystery thriller "Stoker" in which she played a girl who becomes infatuated with her mysterious uncle. Sounds like our kind of movie!

Speaking of movies, the "Alice and Wonderland" star has been busy spending time in Toronto where she's been filming David Cronenberg's "Map to the Stars" with Robert Pattinson (who she's shared a kiss or two with) and hanging out with her boyfriend, "The Social Network" star, Jesse Eisenberg.

We're surprised that Mia has left her two hot studs at home!
