Rooney Mara showed up at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 7th annual Governors Awards in Hollywood, Calif., Saturday in a daring ensemble.

Rooney Mara’s Latest Look

Mara opted for a look from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2016 collection that combined a structured military-style jacket with a tiered sheer lace skirt. The 30-year-old actress kept her accessories to a minimum and wore her hair styled into a slicked back up-do.

Mara has been making the promotional rounds for her new film Carol, in which she stars opposite Cate Blanchett. The movie, an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel The Price of Salt, tells the story of an unlikely romance between housewife Carol (Blanchett) and young shopgirl Therese (Mara). In an interview, Mara revealed that it was easy to get into the mindset of her character, and that, thanks to Blanchett’s professionalism, the more intense scenes in the film weren’t too taxing to shoot.

“Certainly that’s how I felt about Cate, I was enamored with her, and I sort of watched everything that she was doing,” Mara told the New York Daily News, adding of her love scene with Blanchett, “It’s just like shooting any other really intense scene, if you’re shooting a really emotional scene, you’re naked in a different way.”

In addition to talking about Carol, Mara has also recently weighed in on rumors about a Girl With the Dragon Tattoo follow-up.

“As far as I know, I’m doing it until someone says that I’m not,” Mara told E! News. “And then I still might do it!”
