ROONEY MARA: LIVING FOR HERSELF!

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

After a string of blockbuster films, Rooney Mara has spent the past few years on smaller, psychologically demanding projects, and she’s nowhere near done yet.  Appearing on the October cover of Vogue, shot by Annie Leibovitz, Mara, 32, appears in a stunning Valentino gown.  With Benedict Andrew’s dark film, Una (based on the play, Blackbird), in the can and A Ghost Story out this summer, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress is as much a chameleon as her choice in roles.  Speaking with Nathan Heller she shares, “What I try to live by now is: It doesn’t matter what other people think. I try to live for myself.” In some ways, it’s her most demanding standard yet. “I have to get good at myself, which is a challenge,” she says. “I’m the meanest critic there is.”

VOGUE’S FASHIONABLE FLUID COUPLE

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik grace the cover of Vogue’s August cover.  Labeled “part of a new generation embracing gender fluidity,” the couple was shot by Inez and Vinoodh, who were inspired by the gender-bending Virginia Woolf novel, Orlando.  “Orlando had become a woman,” Woolf writes, “but in every other respect, Orlando remained precisely as he had been. The change of sex, though it altered their future, did nothing whatever to alter their identity.”

Hadid and Malik represent millennials who have a blasé attitude towards sexual identification.  They borrow each other’s clothes and blur the line between masculinity and femininity.  Fashion has followed this fluidity.  According to Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain, the new generation does not want to be defined.  “You see boys wearing makeup, girls buying menswear—they are not afraid to be who they are. This category or that category—who cares? They want to define themselves.”
