Saoirse Ronan isn’t your standard 24-year-old. She’s been nominated for 3 Academy Awards, 4 BAFTAs, and has a Golden Globe (for Lady Bird) to her name. But it was her red runner circuit in 2018 that solidified her station as one of Hollywood’s new guard. Having tested varying silhouettes during a 2016 endowment deteriorate (for Brooklyn), Ronan warranted her sartorial chops in designs from Burberry, Calvin Klein Collection, and Saint Laurent. But this year, she embraced all from directional takes on a classical LBD to channeling classical film icons with complicated beauty and polish.
