It's a clash of the stylish siblings from the 2012 Academy Awards red carpet.

If there was any Oscar nominee whom the world’s fashion aficionados were awaiting, and whom every Tweeter of the event had something to say, it was Rooney Mara.

The influence of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star - her bangs, her steely gaze, her porcelain skin in stark contrast to her dark hair - is the talk of every red carpet.

Her older sister, Kate, Mara (American Horror Story, 127 Hours) went a different route, mixing soft pastels and flirty silhouettes in a floral-bead emblazoned Elie Saab gown.

Remember the name Rooney Mara. You'll be hearing it often over the next couple years.

This relatively unknown actress has beaten out a number of major stars - such as Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson - and landed the female lead in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She'll star as Lisbeth Salander in the big screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel.

Mara appeared in A Nightmare on Elm Street and also has a role in this fall's The Social Network opposite Justin Timberlake.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts shooting next month in Sweden. Daniel Craig has already signed on as Mikael Blomkvist, while Robin Wright is rumored to play his character's love interest in the film. It will come out on December 21, 2011.
