At this point, it’s common knowledge for those who have been following Rooney Mara’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo transformation that the film role has left a bit of a permanent mark on her personal style. In addition to holding onto to the short bangs and nipple ring, she recently told Allure that she “used to wear a lot of girly, frilly things” and now “buys things that are more comfortable, and more utilitarian, and sort of boyish.”
While not exactly boyish, her red carpet and promotional appearance looks have all been thoughtful, with a gothic vibe and a little severe. The Prabal Gurung, Givenchy couture, Roksanda Illincic, YSL and Rodarte pieces we’ve seen her in have felt Lisbeth-appropriate, in a more formal, fashion-y way. For some reason, she also seems very committed to revealing the sides of her torso in every dress. The result has been stunning and captivating every time and keeps us wanting more.
Given the caliber of her premiere looks, we anticipate something pretty spectacular at next year’s Golden Globes (she’s nominated for best actress). Click through to see what we mean.
