Kate Mara's Angelic Dress Nails It At The 2014 Emmy Awards

Most would identify Kate Mara's style with the plain hoodies and occasionally-wrinkled garments her former character Zoe Barnes used to wear in 'House of Cards.' But there's no doubt that Mara's red carpet look on Monday was anything but ordinary.

Wearing a white, flowing gown by J. Mendel with an intricately-laced bodice with black embroidery, the star accessorized with chunky white stilettos, black nails and fierce eye makeup. Mara is known for taking fashion risks, most recently with a pale pink and yellow Dior dress at the 2014 Creative Emmy Awards.

Although Mara's character was (spoiler alert!) killed off of the Netflix series this past season, we're looking forward to many more projects and interesting outfit choices from the actress.
