Why Would Anyone Want to Look Like 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'?

Girl with the Dragon TattooThe fashion world is in a frenzy today over news (via WWD) that H&M will be releasing a capsule collection inspired by lead character Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming film, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

One word:

Ew.

The line will be designed by Trish Summerville, who designed actress Rooney Mara's costumes for the film.

According to the New York Post:

H&M said Wednesday the 30-piece collection has "the dark urban feel that defines" Salander's character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans, and slouchy hoodies.

Thanks, but if I'm going for that look, I can get it at Goodwill.

I'm impressed that Rooney Mara went to such extremes to play this character -- enduring body piercings, chopping her hair into this weird and hideous haircut, bleaching her eyebrows, and whittling her figure down to boyish proportions.

That doesn't mean I want to run to my nearest salon (or H&M for that matter) and get the look for myself!

HOWEVER, I am praying that all the little 20-somethings out there do exactly that -- because then I will look like a goddess. LOL.

If you're interested, the capsule collection will debut at H&M on December 14.

I'd love to know what you think about all this Girl With the Dragon Tattoo madness. Is looking like Lisbeth Salander really going to become a hot trend? *shudder*
