Newly platinum blonde Saoirse Ronan steals the show in Gucci mini-dress
At 22, she's already a trailblazer in cinema, so it's fitting that the fashion industry would also fall head over heels for Irish actress Saoirse Ronan.
As the rising star to watch during last year's awards season - where she earned her second Oscar nomination - the Carlow native became one of Gucci's go-to 'it' girls and cemented her spot at the Italian fashion house's ethereal Cruise Show in Florence on Monday night.
Sporting a new platinum blonde bob, Saoirse outdid even her own best style moments in a long sleeve purple and gold jacquard dress with flounce detail and embroidery, lurex brocade clutch bag with black grosgrain bow and feline head detail, and GG Marmont platinum high heel sandals - all by Gucci, of course.
Ronan has been keeping a relatively low profile at home in Ireland in recent months, even skipping awards season this year to stay at home. And she's been busy supporting her pal Ed Sheeran in recent months, attending his sold-out Dublin gig in April after appearing in his video for Galway Girl - filmed in, you guessed it, Galway.
As expected, the fashion show at Palazzo Pitti was a star-studded affair with Salma Hayek and Jared Leto both in attendance, while Dakota Fanning and her sisters Stella Banderas and Grace Johnson stole the FROW.
