Enter the dragon (tattoo)!

After gracing W and Vogue, next-big-thing Rooney Mara has been tapped as Dazed & Confused's January cover star in a shoot with photographer Glen Luchford.

Playing off her edgy Lisbeth Salander character in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo—which has spawned its own H&M collection—Mara looks haunting in a black Alexander McQueen headpiece.

And though Mara tells the magazine that she's "always been drawn to darkness," her life isn't all doom and gloom. The charitable actress recently co-designed Kora's $95 Uweza necklace to benefit a foundation providing support to families living in Kenyan slums, Racked reports.

Maybe she's actually The Girl with the Heart of Gold?

For more Rooney Mara, pick up the January issue of Dazed & Confused, on sale soon.
