Star Style: Saoirse Ronan

Red carpet

It may come as a surprise that Saoirse Ronan has been quietly gracing our screens for nearly ten years. It seems as if the young child star of Atonement has very much grown up and in that time has developed an absolutely fabulous wardrobe with a whip crack sense for what looks good.

Her style is marked by an understated grace and elegance reminiscent of a young Cate Blanchett and her daring for wearing has seen her embrace the best from each year she’s been on screen.

As she grew older, Ronan underwent a transition from pale, floral, straightline frocks to more adventurous outlines that began to symbolise her signature style as one that dips between royal gowns and glamorous boss lady chic.

Thanks to her ethereal Irish complexion and a choice in naked make up (an anomaly in Hollywood) she can wear deep, rich and sombre hues as well as their brilliant counterparts, high necklines and full skirts without drowning in the fabrics.

Given that she is both a stage and film actor it’s no surprise that she has an eye for dramatic, flamboyant costumes and the special ability to wear them all in her own way, one that marks the beginning of an icon.

Some of her best looks have included a Valentino gown with butterfly embroidered detail that she wore to a 2014 Vanity Fair party, a pink Gucci mini at the 2015 LACMA Gala and a Cushnie et Ochs dress at the 2018 AAL in Los Angeles.
