Black was the order of the day on the red carpert at last night's Irish Film and Television Awards at the Convention Centre in Dublin.

Saoirse Ronan looked stunning in a LBD with cut-out side panels. The 18-year-old embraced her youth with a crimped ponytail that she wore to the top of her head. Her makeup was kept simple and age appropriate with a delicate dab of rose coloured blusher highlighting her cheekbones.

Rosanna Davison sported a more racy black number which was designed by her friend Dawn Fitzgerald. The plunging V neck dress allowed the former Miss Universe to flaunt her gorgeous necklace from Loulerie. Rosanna’s beautiful up-do was created by Brown Sugar.

New mum Amy Huberman looked radiant in a long black frock that disguised her tiny little bump so well that she barely looked pregnant. The 33-year-old Threesome star added some pizzazz to her simplistic looked with an on-trend fishtail plait and gentle quiff. Amy kept her accessories to a minimum with a chunky gold bracelet, teardrop earrings and a simplistic box clutch.

Kathryn Thomas turned heads in an elegant high-neck gown. The Voice of Ireland presenter wore her hair slicked back giving prominence to her perfectly crafted smoky eye. We adore her chunky black bracelet. Kathryn nailed this high-fashion inspired outfit. She looked like she had come fresh off the runway!
