Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander


In the North American film version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", set for December 2011 release, Rooney Mara will play Lisbeth Salander.

Salander is by far and away the most interesting female in fiction and film of the past decade.  Her punk princess gear and makeup are a smoke screen for intellect and vulnerability. 

November 2011 VOGUE features Mara, already emaciated, pierced and tattooed, with the prerequisite cliche dyed black hair (very, very Goth). Don't get her angry.  This girl kicks some serious butt and she has a near genius IQ.

Natalie Wood, Teen Queen

Nat's 1950s Paper Dolls:

Natalie Wood had been a star since early childhood when these paper dolls were issued in the late 1950s or early 1960s. As a bona fide Teen Idol, Natalie always wore the coolest of the cool "threads".  Enjoy!

And so, we bid Nightie-night (and Pyjama-night and Baby-doll night) to our tired but slammin'ly stylish Natalie!

This gothic vision of Anne Hathaway coincided with the release of her 2011 movie "One Day".  She will be continuing her dark days (and knights) in "The Dark Knight Rises" as Catwoman in 2012.  Can't wait!
