The Event: The 2015 Governors Awards in L.A. on Saturday evening, where the actress was joined on the carpet by Carol co-star Cate Blanchett as well as Amy Schumer, Rachel Weisz and Brie Larson. 

Why We Dig: From bold hairstyles to a fearless wardrobe, Mara is no stranger to red-carpet risks. But though she always opts for powerful statement pieces, her looks are always effortless rather than in-your-face and over-the-top, like Lady Gaga's or Rihanna's daring takes. This bright red McQueen ensemble, with a tiered lace skirt and band- geek-chic jacket, is the perfect embodiment of her unflappable style. Styled with a cool ponytail, minimal makeup and not a single piece of jewelry, Mara looks as though she woke up, rolled out of bed and threw on the McQueen look without a second glance.
