Talk about sheer elegance.

As one of Hollywood's rising style stars, Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan showed she isn't afraid to take a red carpet risk in a daring black semi sheer sequin dress.

The Carlow native (21) has been busy on the promotional trail for Brooklyn, which is already generating Oscar buzz, and stepped out on Saturday night in an eye-catching Calvin Klein number at the Brittania Awards in Los Angeles.

The Irish star is no stranger to couture on the red carpet, but she is famously conservative when it comes to her dress choice, choosing pantsuits and full length gowns over the flesh baring style adopted by Young Hollywood actresses.

But much like her movie roles, her personal style is also evolving.

It was a busy weekend for Ronan who was also rubbing shoulders with her A-list colleagues at last night's Hollywood Film Awards, including a reunion with actor Ryan Gosling, who directed in 2014's Lost River.

He presented her with the New Hollywood Award for 'Brooklyn' at last night's ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, also attended by Reese Witherspoon, Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, Alicia Vikander and more.
