Rooney Mara’s Edgy Fashion File

Ever since her Oscar-nominated performance in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in 2011, Rooney Mara has gone from strength to strength – dazzling us not only with her acting skills but also her exceptional flare for fashion.

We complettly fell for her red carpet look at Cannes this simmer – wearing a gorgeous white lace Alexander McQueen dress with matching Stuart Weitzman heels. The brunette beauty not only won us over with her SS15 look, but she was also named best actress for her role in Todd Haynes’ new drama Carol.

Having gone from under the radar to red carpet darling in record time. It’s only right that we celebrate Rooney Mara’s new style icon status. Known for her gothic glamour Rooney never shies away from a bold lip, and never fails to emphasize her killer brows and jet black tresses in numerous styles. 

The 30-year old actress looked effortless in her custom made Givenchy dress at the London premier of her new blockbuster film Pan. The tiered sheer skirt and lace detailing created elegant lines, and was topped off with Mara’s choice of accessory – a black choker. Perfect for those who wish to combine the two G’s – grunge and glamour. 

Rooney isn’t the only famous Mara in the family – her older sister Kate, 32, is starring in the original Netflix series House of Cards is a red carpet regular too. Unlike her younger sister however, Kate often opts for for simple, statement pieces with natural make-up. This stylish duo proves that a great sense of fashion can be genetic. 

Mara has amazed us since day one. We’ve put together some of her best style moments thus far. From her striking white Givenchy dress and her cutout Prabal Gurung LBD, to her red carpet debut. We’re sure this lady will be strutting the red carpet for years to come, take a look at some of our favourites…
