Rooney Mara’s stylist, Ryan Hastings, is a man of few words, but his fashion choices for Mara speak for themselves. Mara wowed fans and critics alike with her structured white knee-length dress and nude strappy pumps at the Japan premiere in 2012. Minimal makeup and slicked hair shows off her natural beauty and the asymmetrical design of her dress.

Contrary to the boldness of her gowns at the Golden Globes and Japanese premiere, Mara pulls together a ladylike look with a touch of edge. At the AFI Awards in 2012, Mara poses in her signature demure pose with hands together. Although she looks delicate, she rocks this ruffled gold blouse and A-line skirt. With a black belt and sling-back pumps Mara reveals her inner Audrey Hepburn with blunt bangs and neutral makeup.

How does she keep in shape? In a recent interview with “Allure” magazine she said, "I've never done group sports, but I've always sort of been active. I do a lot of Pilates and the Bar Method, or Cardio Barre, yoga, or just running.” It’s no wonder she always looks toned on the red carpet.

In an interview with the “LA Times” Mara admitted, “I'm someone who overthinks everything and really needs to investigate every part of something before I'm ready to do it in front of other people.” If overthinking led to this ensemble, then we encourage it.
