It's Ruth Negga's world and we're all just living in it.

Four days into January, the Irish-Ethiopian actress has landed another high profile magazine cover - this time opposite her biggest Best Actress rival, Natalie Portman.

The 36-year-old, who is nominated for a Golden Globe this weekend for Loving, is one of the most talked about stars in this year's Oscars race and it seems the fashion world agrees with Hollywood's newest golden girl.

Portman might be the favourite to take home the gold statue for Jackie, but the two appear side by side on the cover of W Magazine's Movie Issue as they lean in for a kiss in the 'Come Together' theme issue pairing the best actors together from the year's most talked about performances.

Her latest accolade comes just weeks after it was revealed she landed the cover of US Vogue, a feat few Irish women before her have achieved.

On Monday night, she was given the Rising Star award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and is officially have a better 2017 than anyone else.
