Roksanda Ilincic talks about dressing Rooney Mara at last night's Stockholm premiere: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Rooney Mara wears a black jumpsuit by Roksanda Ilincic on the red carpet

Another day, another stellar red carpet gown for our new favourite fashion crush (and 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' star) Rooney Mara. The actress appeared at the film’s premiere in Stockholm last night wearing a covered-up but revealing, dramatic but demure jumpsuit from Roksanda Ilincic's Resort 2012 collection.  *Round of applause please!* 

This fashion triumph follows hot on the heels of her ethereally spooky white Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci couture gown (keep in mind that the only other ladies to wear such luxurious pieces are the likes of Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova and Carine Roitfeld) for the London premiere earlier this week. It's clear Rooney's turning into a red carpet triumph. 

The pale but interesting Rooney and her rebellious dress sense for after-dark A-list moments actually reminds us of Roksanda herself. So what does the designer think of Rooney wearing one of her designs? ‘It was wonderful to see Rooney in my Resort 12 jumpsuit for such a high profile appearance. She looks amazing and effortlessly cool. The jumpsuit is the perfect fit and compliments her character both on and off screen,’ Roksanda told Grazia Daily this morning. And we think the designer might be a fan of the movie, which sees Rooney play an expert hacker whose abandoned by the state and seeks her own revenge. 'I've always been interested in darkness – it’s a very London fashion thing, turning something ugly into something really quite beautiful,' Roksanda has said of her love for moody and troubled movies.

Rooney’s another lady in a long-line of recent Roksanda wearers that include everyone from Amber Heard to Lady Gaga. 'I design for all types of women, whether someone’s older and wants to be smart and classic to a really fashion forward girl who wants to experiment with colour – I like to create something for all sorts of women,' says Roksanda. Here's hoping Rooney's paying attention to that…
