According to various media, Rooney Mara would play the role of legendary actress Audrey Hepburn in a new biopic for Apple. The two-time Oscar nominee will also produce the film for Apple, with Luca Guadagnino from “Call Me By Your Name” set to direct.
While details of the film are scarce, there is no doubt that there is an interesting story to be told. Hepburn, born in Belgium, grew up in the Netherlands during World War II, when the Germans occupied the country. After the war, her family moved to Amsterdam, where she studied ballet while working to support her family. Her first leading role was Princess Ann in 1953’s “Roman Holiday”, for which she would win an Oscar, a Golden Globe Award, and a BAFTA Award.
Audrey would later become the muse of French designer Hubert de Givenchy and made the Little Black Dress famous when she starred in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Eventually, she became an undisputed style icon. Ahead, take a look at some of the actress’ chicest looks from “Funny Face” and how they stack up against Rooney Mara’s own style.
In a 1952 photo, Hepburn can be seen in Rome with her then-fiancé, James Hanson. She wore a simple black dress cinched at the waist with a belt and black patent leather pumps with an almond toe.
On another occasion, a year later, in Rome, she dated Hanson in a white patterned dress with black buttons along the bodice and a belted waist. Again, she donned black heels, but this time they were topped with a subtle knot.
Like Hepburn, Mara also seems to be drawn to sleek black dresses and classic black pumps. For the 2021 Gotham Awards in New York City on November 29, she opted for a beaded tiered black dress with black pointed stiletto heels at the ankle.
The 36-year-old actress also walked the red carpet at the British Academy Film and Television Awards in London in a stunning black dress with puffed sleeves, sheer details and a maxi skirt. She teamed the look with pointy black stiletto heels.
