Calvin Klein goes cinematic with new Rooney Mara ad

 

Actress Rooney Mara stars in a new video campaign for Calvin Klein in her role as the face of the brand’s Downtown fragrance.

Shot by director David Fincher (of Fight Club, The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fame) the cinematic 60-second spot sees Mara playing the role of a young New York-based actress. She is captured in black and white as she makes her way through the city on a busy work day – starting out at her local coffee shop, travelling on the subway, having her hair and make-up applied before posing on a shoot and then on a film set, and finally ending at a press conference.

It also features the soundtrack of Runaway by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

An accompanying print campaign was directed by Fabien Baron of Baron + Baron and shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
