Rooney Mara Wears Dragon Dress on 'Vogue' Cover

VogueDon't know who Rooney Mara is yet?

You will.

She has the lead role in the upcoming film, 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,' which had better be good since she's being touted as the next It Girl and has even landed the cover of November Vogue.

Her bizarre haircut (for the film, natch) wouldn't work on most of us, but that dress is DIVINE.

Want to find out how to get it?

Ralph LaurenI don't know about you, but I'm crazy about this dress!

Now I just have to come up with an extra $5,000 to get it for myself. *sigh*

I don't know much about Rooney Mara, but I read Vogue's profile of her (check it out for yourself here,) and I will say this much about the girl. She's certainly committed to her craft. Mara totally transformed herself, mentally and physically for the role. Check out this photo of her before her 'Dragon' transformation. When it came time to prepare her for the part, the movie's stylists went to extremes, according to 'Vogue':

'...Mara was in a New York hotel room, where [hairstylist] Danilo “cut my hair, shaved the sides, bleached the eyebrows, then dyed my hair black,” she says. “Then we went and did the piercings—all in one day. I went in looking like Erica Albright [Mara's character in The Social Network] and I came out like this.” Was she traumatized? “The eyebrows were the biggest shock because that really changed my face, and I didn’t recognize myself. But I was fine because I knew it was going to be really helpful for getting into character.”'

Reading about the preparation Mara underwent in order to play this role, you can't help but hope that the movie is good, and that her hard work pays off. It's got to be one of the most physically and psychologically torturous roles that I've ever heard of.

So for those of you who've read the book -- Do you think Rooney Mara can pull off the character of Lisbeth Salander? Will you see the movie?
