Kate Mara rocks bright yellow dress to premiere

Kate Mara certainly brought some light to a gloomy London day when she arrived on the red carpet for the premiere of her latest role, the Netflix series “House of Cards.” According to People magazine, the stunning actress donned a bright yellow Dior dress with an asymmetrical hem. She paired the look with a jeweled collared necklace, a few cocktail rings, gold heels and a Nancy Gonzalez purple clutch. 

Mara has played a number of roles, including parts in “Everwood” and “American Horror Story,” but when it came to acquiring this role, she has to thank her sister and talented actress, Rooney. Mara’s younger sister has starred in “The Social Network” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” both of which were directed by David Fincher, who was also at the helm for “House of Cards,” according to The Guardian, giving Mara the in she needed. 

“I fell in love with the character and asked Rooney to put in a word for me with Fincher,” Mara told the news source. “A month later I got a call to come and audition.”
