The film Carol is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1952 semi-autobiographical novel The Price of Salt. The story follows two women from very different worlds as they start an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. Sarah Paulson plays Abby Gerhard, the main character Carol’s best friend and ex-lover. Though the role is fairly small, the loyalty Abby exhibits to the friend she clearly still harbors deeper feelings for makes her a compelling and complicated character. Read More

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute benefit gala is unofficially one of fashion's biggest nights - Ralph Lauren declares it the "Super Bowl of fashion." A-listers, armed with their $25,000 tickets, came together Monday night in their most adventurous outfits to make an impression and celebrate fashion as an art at the Vogue-sponsored event. And while some of the sartorial choices on Monday shone, many fell flat, and some were just perplexing. Read More
Confession: I'm totally obsessed with Rooney Mara's red carpet style. Sure, I saw that Dragon Tattoo movie and it was good in that long, super intense kind of way, but what I'm really digging at the moment is all the sartorial press and red carpet appearances by Mara, who basically kills it every time. She somehow makes pretty and edgy work together flawlessly.
NY Mag compared her to Audrey Hepburn and while many young, talented, dark haired actresses garner the comparison eventually, with Mara, I can actually see it. Read More

So I finally gave in after a few weeks of protest and went to see the Hollywood remake of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Though I tried to keep an open mind while watching, I found it almost impossible not to constantly compare it to the original Swedish version directed by Niels Arden Olev.
The fact that Hollywood (specifically director David Fincher) had the gall to remake the film in the first place is infuriating. The Oplev version came out not even three years ago, in 2009. We all know that the U.S. Read More

David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is one of the most anticipated films of the year; beyond the murder-heavy, not-exactly-popcorn-material plot (said to remain very faithful to Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel), a lot of the hype is due to The Girl herself. After months of speculation over who would play asocial hacker Lisbeth Salander, the first photos of a black-haired, pierced, fully-transformed and hauntingly strange-beautiful Rooney Mara appeared-- and it was clear that Salander had some serious icon potential.

It's been a grueling search for the female lead of the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Names have been tossed in the air and shot down like Duck Hunt: Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan, Emily Browning, Emma Watson, Mia Wasikowska, Kristen Stewart. But Sony Pictures has announced today that Lisbeth Salander will be played by Rooney Mara, who recently starred in a remake of Nightmare on Elm Street and in the forthcoming The Social Network about the rise of Facebook.
