Givenchy names Rooney Mara as face of its new fragrance for women
today May 9, 2018
Oscar-nominated American actress Rooney Mara was named on Monday as the face of French luxury house Givenchy’s new women’s fragrance slated for release in September.
Mara first caught audiences’ attention as Mark Zuckerberg’s ex-girlfriend, Erica Albright, in 2010’s The Social Network but she is perhaps best known for her starring role as Swedish hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011).
She has since gone on to star in a series of critically acclaimed films, including Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Side Effects, Her, Trash and Lion. Her performance alongside Cate Blanchett in Todd Haynes’ Carol earned her the Best Actress Award in Cannes in 2015, as well as nominations at the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
This year she takes the title role in Garth Davis’ Mary Magdalene, playing alongside real-life partner Joaquin Phoenix.
In her new role with Givenchy, Mara joins an illustrious roster of female stars who have previously fronted fragrance campaigns for the brand, including Alicia Keys, Amanda Seyfried and Liv Tyler.
A release from the brand lauded the actress’s “committed and daring” film choices and described her as “a long-term friend of the Givenchy house”, pointing out that she has worn Givenchy creations on the red carpet on a number of occasions.
This Monday’s Met Gala 2018 was no exception, as Mara wore a light blue Givenchy gown adorned with crystals and arrived hand-in-hand with the house’s creative director Clare Waight Keller.
