As I was adding a Rooney Mara photograph to Monday’s Looks of the Week when I decided I should probably dedicate an entire post to this little ingenue. She’s been making the rounds for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and has everyone talking. From gowns to two piece cocktail dresses to architectural separates, she always gives us something to discuss.
With her haircut growing out, severe black bangs and pale complexion, she made the wise decision to go for dramatic, high impact looks. And while you may not love everything that she’s photographed in, you have to admit that she’s making some very interesting, no-holds-barred choices.
Nothing safe and boring for this young lady.
Follow me for some of her most conversational looks from the last few weeks…
This Valentino gown is one of the most traditional looks that she’s put together. That being said, with her dramatic coloring, the striking hue of the dress and her blunt bangs, she still cuts a very striking figure.
I just adore this frock, it’s sweet but the silhouette, neckline, and color and unique and striking. It’s a great choice for a sit down TV interview.
Black leather & bondage in Rome. Just kidding. Sort of. This Dion Lee dress is actually surprisingly stylish on her. The starkness of the color & cut outs emphasize her beautiful skin and slim figure.
She wore Louis Vuitton for the Parisian leg of her Dragon Tattoo tour and the bell-shaped silhouette and intricate beading of this dress are perfect for her, flattering her petite figure.
Simple almost to the point of austerity, this Miu Miu LBD is saved by the phenomenal silver glitter pumps.
This Miu Miu look just screams Audrey to me. The bangs, the headband, the high-waisted A-line skirt, the simple grey tank. Nothing I would think to pick out but somehow it comes together and works really well for her. Love the shoes.
I love this Givenchy jacket, which could be paired with pants in real life, but looks great here with a skirt, tights and platforms. A perfect dressy winter daytime look.
One of my favorite Rodarte gowns to date – polka dots! It’s amazing that someone who looks so at home in leather and cut-outs can look equally perfect in a sweet, pale halter gown. She’s incredibly versatile.
Looking at the outfits above, this Prabal Gurung dress is as close to a “type” as Miss Mara seems to have. Its striking, head turning and unique. Can you imagine anyone else wearing it?
One of the most consistent factors throughout these looks is the styling. Or lack there of. She doesn’t carry a purse or clutch and wears virtually no jewelry. She picks standout pieces and lets them do all of the talking.
As you probably guessed, I’m not the only one keeping an eye on Rooney Mara. BellaSugar has a breakdown on the various ways she wears her bangs here and Harper’s Bazaar talks about her sleek chignon here. She’s also covered Vogue and Allure recently. WhoWhatWear even named her Girl of the Month way back in May of 2010.
So what do you think of Miss Mara’s personal style? Which of the one-of-a-kind looks above is your favorite one of hers to date?
