Style Profile: Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara had been meandering in relative Hollywood obscurity (did any of you see Tanner Hall? I didn’t think so) until she was cast in a small but meaningful role in The Social Network as Mark Zuckerberg’s sharp-tongued girlfriend. She then went on to beat our a zillion other actresses, including Scarlett Johansson, for the role of Lisbeth Salander in the American adaptation of the hugely popular book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She’s since ditched her wavy brown locks and safe, girlish clothing for a stark, jet black hair-do (growing out the even starker cut she got to play Lisbeth) and more edgy ensembles.
