How Does Rooney Mara’s Allure Cover Measure Up to the Rest?

Rooney Mara's recent covers.

Riding the wave of Dragon Tattoo publicity, Rooney Mara appears on yet another major cover: January's Allure. Though the magazine touts her edgy nipple pierce on its cover lines, Rooney's cover shot is a soft, almost angelic close-up — very different from her two other recent, major covers for Vogue and Dazed & Confused, the former of which dressed her in a fabulous sequined swimming cap. She's certainly proving to be a versatile muse, so maybe she won't just get pigeonholed into all the "edgy girl" roles once the Dragon Tattoo press settles.
