Saoirse Ronan is well versed in red carpet fashion, so it's no wonder that her most dazzling outfit of an already stunning awards season run would be saved for the Oscars.
The Carlow native, who was nominated for Best Actress at the 92nd Academy Awards for her role in Little Women, looked every inch the Hollywood star as she stepped out in a dramatic black, blue and cream gown by Gucci that mixed both classic and modern fashion.
Styled by Elizabeth Saltzman and her team, Ronan continued her love affair with avant-garde silhouettes, which was a custom design adapted from the brand's couture show.
The breathtaking gown featured a dramatic v-neck neckline, a structured satin-finish bustier and a ruffled black and cream peplum detail at the waist. Under that flows a periwinkle blue shimmering full skirt designed by Alessandro Michele perfectly complimenting the star's porcelain complexion.

As for her makeup, artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua kept things minimalist and romantic with a nude lip and pastel eyes dusted with dreamy soft lilac eyeshadow — once again using all Chanel products. Keeping Ronan's complexion clear and radiant, Bua ensured the star's natural beauty shone through.
Saoirse mixes up her hair as often as she does her looks, and tonight was another stunning surprise. Stepping out in a chic choppy fringe, she looked fresh and modern. Accented with a bug-shaped diamante hairclip, her look was young and whimsical.
In a nod to sustainability, the black fabric is from the same reel of fabric that her black BAFTAs gown was made from.
