Style Crush: Rooney Mara

Burgeoning acting career acclamation aside, thanks to her role in the much-hyped English big screen adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara's seemingly effortless style is swiftly conquering the hearts of many, including my own. A reincarnated Snow White, her sleek ebony crop (a product of her role as pierced, tattooed, computer hacking introvert Lisbeth Salander) contrasts strikingly against her alabaster complexion.

Mara's minimalist choice of attire works so well with her unique, more innocent Dita von Teese looks. She disregards accessories. She knows what colours work for her (a winter palette of bold blues, blacks, whites and jewel tones) and an oh so subtle, blink-and-you'll-miss-it nod to the silent screen era infiltrates into her much coveted wardrobe. At every event, she ticks all the right boxes, although some would argue this is merely down to her playing it too near the "safe" margin. Ostensibly, it would appear Givenchy is Mara's go-to designer when it comes to red carpet events.

  1. She is amazing. Like an edgy Audrey Hepburn.

    1. Isn't it? Especially in comparison to her style pre-Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which was, for lack of a kinder word, as bland as cardboard. Yes, actually. She is like a slightly more avant-garde version of Audrey x

  2. I love her dresses, specially the White One" :D

  3. Their dressed by proffessionals though, how much is their style and how much the artist who made the outfit?. What we see is a compendium of different hands, not one persons aesthetics.

  4. I love Rooney Mara. That white Givenchy dress is just beautiful! call me crazy but I would love it as wedding dress!
