Givenchy announced its collaboration with American actress Rooney Mara, who will embody its new fragrance for women. Two-time Oscar nominee Rooney Mara is one of the most talented actresses of her generation. Committed and daring in her film choices, Rooney is not only respected for her transformative performances but also for her dedication to humanitarian efforts close to her heart. A long-term friend of the Givenchy House, she has often graced the red carpet dressed in Givenchy. A graduate of New York University, Rooney Mara launched her career in the memorable opening scene of The Social Network for director David Fincher, who subsequently cast her in the lead role of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in 2011, for which she was nominated at the Oscars and the Golden Globes.
The actress went on to star in critically acclaimed films including Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Side Effects, Her and Trash. Rooney Mara’s career reached new heights in 2015 with her performance in Todd Haynes’ Carol. She was nominated at the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and the Screen Actors Guild Awards for this role and won the award for Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival. In 2016, the actress played a moving role in Lion before appearing in no fewer than five films in 2017: Song to Song, The Discovery, Una, The Secret Scripture and A Ghost Story. In 2018, Rooney Mara plays the title role in Mary Magdalene alongside Joaquin Phoenix. She has a supporting turn in Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot, which was recently shown at the Sundance Film Festival and the Berlin Film Festival.
