Mamie Gummer

The genius director and always-quotable Mike Nichols once said that Meryl Streep, "looked like she swallowed a light bulb." That luminescence seems to be a dominant gene, as Streep's eldest daughter, Mamie Gummer, clearly has a similar glow about her. But personally, we think Gummer's incandescence has more to do with her rapidly rising star. After making waves in 2006's Evening and getting rave reviews for her role as Cecile in Les Liaisons Dangereuses on Broadway, she will next appear in John Carpenter's upcoming horror flick The Ward (alongside former GOTM, Amber Heard). And while this Northwestern graduate is certainly making a scene on the screen and stage, she's also made quite an impact on the Who What Wear editors, as well. Pretty party frocks, clean lines, and feminine prints are the styles of choice for this year's first Girl of the Month and we couldn't be more thrilled to shine a light on an actress who is making a name of her own!
