Saoirse Ronan is keeping us on our toes with her ever evolving personal style.

The last time we saw the Irish actress (23) on the red carpet was in May at Gucci's cruise collection show in Florence with platinum blonde hair; but like all long-lasting artists, she's keeping us on our toes for another new look. Ronan, who is reportedly dating Wicklow musician Hozier, injected some youthful appeal in a tweed mini-dress from British designer Alessandra Rich's Spring/Summer '18 collection (not to mention that crystal belt!) at the premiere of her latest film On Chesil Beach during the BFI London Film Festival.

She highlighted her Giampiero Bodino drop earrings with an intricate braided up 'do and a feline flick to die for. She finished off her look with a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels with embellished ankle strap. Her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman said during awards season last year that working with the actress is a dream. "Working with Saoirse is simple and pure," she told Pret-a-Reporter. "She’s fun and makes choices based on her heart."

The twice Oscar-nominated actresses is currently promoting her latest film, which centres on a young couple on their honeymoon in the early '60s and their struggles to communicate.

“I hope this film gets people talking about sex and not have it be a taboo thing or something they should be ashamed of, so they can let it be something that can be shared between two people and be an honest thing," she told the Press Association. "I think that is really healthy and I do feel people are starting to get to that stage."

It's the second time she's appearing in an Ian McEwan adaptation - in 2007, she appeared in Atonement and her first Oscar nod. As one of the most talented actresses of her generation, Saorise is earning fresh praise for her turn in Lady Bird and is already tipped as an early contender for her third Academy Award recognition.
