Kate Mara Makes A Nod To Mod In New York City

Kate Mara got a fresh new 'do — and her style sensibilities seem to be following suit. To complement her newly cropped hair, she traded in her normal style for a retro-inspired look. In New York to promote the upcoming Fantastic Four film, Mara (a.k.a. Invisible Woman) was seen walking around in a straight-out-of-the-sixties getup. When combined with the pixie chop, her sleek black shift dress and minimal accessories make a definite nod to mod. You could almost mistake her for Twiggy back in the day.

But just because Mara's wearing a black dress doesn't mean she played it safe. Her LBD makes a major statement — it's literally covered in embellishments. She carried a small, boxy clutch that matched the structure of the throwback shift dress, and she stayed away from statement jewelry, a favorite styling trick of mod-obsessed celebs. She opted for simple gold hoop earrings, her ensemble not needing any more sparkle. Mara made a practical footwear choice in blush oxfords, because this superwoman doesn't need to use blisters as an excuse for ending the night early.
