Ruth Negga made a statement at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday night ahead of Sunday's Oscars bash.

The Irish-Ethiopian actress wore a Delpozo dress from the Fall/ Winter 2017 collection, with statement bow-like sleeves and a full, floral skirt.

She paired the eye-catching outfit with a bright pink clutch and simple black court heels, while she added a pop of colour to her eyes with cobalt blue eyeliner.

The Limerick native was joined by a host of stars, including Naomi Harris, Freida Pinto and Kate Beckinsale, for the Santa Monica event, in which she was nominated for Best Female for her role in Loving, although Isabelle Huppert took home the award.

However, the star's hopes for an award still remain high as she is nominated for Best Actress for the same role at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Ruth will attend the glitzy awards ceremony this evening with her partner Dominic Cooper, who she has been dating for over six years.

The 89th Academy Awards takes place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California on Sunday February 26, 2017, at approximately 1.30am Irish time.
