Rooney Mara has a haunting presence that makes her unique among her peers, and on the cover of Vogue magazine’s February 2013 issue, she looks fabulous.

The “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” starlet worked with photographer David Sims for the photo spread, though she admitted she “generally loathes having her picture taken.”

In the interview, Rooney said, "Why should I 'fake smile?’ It feels disingenuous to me. I want to smile when something happy happens, so if I do smile, you know it's real."

Additionally, Miss Mara was tapped to host the Met Gala “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” shindig along with Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy, so keep your eyes open for all things Rooney!
