I can only imagine that Joaquin Phoenix is congratulating Rooney Mara on a ponytail well done in this image taken at the photo call for their film Her at the Rome International Film Festival. I definitely wore this sectioned-off style throughout much of my elementary school career (albeit the execution was far less polished and the bands were bright rainbow colors), and Mara makes me want to bring it back. I think it might be the perfect solution to the undercut I’m currently growing out—seeing as I’ll never look as chic as Daria Werbowy does with a rattail.
At last night’s screening of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, held at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, Rooney Mara showed up wearing a cropped Calvin Klein look (she’s the face of the brand’s latest fragrance, Downtown) and sported sleek, half-up, half-down hair. Her slick center-parted style reminded us of the glossy strands seen at Fall shows such as Gucci, Kenneth Cole, and Cushnie et Ochs, where the top half of the head had major sheen, but the length was left dry. We also like that Mara added a bit of texture via undone waves (like those worn down the Calvin Klein Collection runway for Resort).

A favorite of Francisco Costa, Rooney Mara is the face of Calvin Klein’s new DOWNTOWN fragrance. Today, the company released a minute-long commercial starring the A-lister and directed by David Fincher (who worked with her on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network). The black-and-white “day in the life” short follows Mara as she grabs a coffee, listens to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the subway, shoots a film, fields questions at a press junket, and more.
Mary Katrantzou’s vivid prints are often inspired by interiors. Now, thanks to a new candle collaboration with Rodial, fans can display the designer’s signature patterns in their homes, as well as on their backs.
Experimenting with new makeup from the comfort of our living-room couch is the kind of makeover we can get behind.

The Internet has been buzzing over a recently unearthed American Film Institute interview with Dustin Hoffman, in which the actor—who famously played a woman in Tootsie—weighed in on the sensitive topic of female beauty standards: “There’s too many interesting women I have…not had the experience to know in this life because I have been brainwashed.” Preach, Dustin!

Over the past few years, following her breakout role in The Social Network, Rooney Mara has honed a very specific, austere style sensibility. It has roots in her Lisbeth Salander days, when it was hard to tell where the actress’ Girl With the Dragon Tattoo alter ego stopped and the real Rooney Mara began. She has since grown out that harsh hacker microfringe, of course, but Mara still prefers sleek severity over softness when it comes to her hair on the red carpet. Take, for example, the updo she wore to the Ain’t Them Bodies Saints premiere during this weekend’s Los Angeles Film Festival. The tight topknot with a swirl of faux fringe boasted a similar Olive Oyl quality to the one Guido Palau channeled at Miu Miu for Fall, perfectly showcasing Mara’s swanlike neck and flawless complexion, which featured a simple slick of mascara and some light contouring. We imagine it was quite effective at beating the SoCal summer heat, too. Thoughts on Rooney’s latest coiffing coup?
There was a single hair product on heavy rotation last night on the CFDA red carpet that assisted in a number of sleek updos: To fend off the frizz-inducing weather, hairstylists seemed to be grabbing for hair spray en masse. But it was being used akin to gel, so rather than simply setting strands with a spritz of the perennial style-fixer, models and muses such as Joan Smalls, Erin Wasson, and Rooney Mara sported loads of the stuff, smoothed back from the hairline or along center and deep side parts, respectively, for a lacquered effect. It offers assurance from the muggy temperatures that have been plaguing New York of late and also happens to look dead sexy. Here’s an additional tip for getting an ultrasmooth finish that we picked up from Orlando Pita backstage at Giambattista Valli this season: After applying a generous amount of hair spray, like Phyto’s Workable Holding Spray, use the back, flat side of your comb to create a groove-free slick. The summer humidity won’t stand a chance.
