We’ve heard it from two very reliable little birdies that Rooney Mara will cover Vogue‘s November issue. Her cover is obviously timed to her breakout star-making turn as Lisbeth Salander in the hotly anticipated US version of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, out December 21. But if you were looking for more evidence that Mara was in with Vogue, look no further than the front row at Rodarte‘s spring show, where Mara, with her black close cropped Lisbeth-hair, sat next to Anna Wintour.
We’re excited about this cover because Rooney Mara is an exciting fresh face. She completely won us over as Erica Albright in The Social Network, when she told Jesse Eisenberg’s Mark Zuckerberg “You are going to go through life thinking that girls don’t like you because you’re a nerd. And I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that that won’t be true. It’ll be because you’re an asshole.” So satisfying! (I could watch that scene over and over.) She also starred in Diane von Furstenberg’s daughter’s new film Tanner Hall, so you know, there’s another tenuous fashion connection.
What do you think of Vogue‘s November cover girl choice?
