Saoirse Ronan is Hollywood's golden girl and the toast of Ireland.

At 23, she's expected to earn her third Oscar nomination after securing her first age 12 in 2007. Which means we've had 11 years of Saoirse, who has produced some truly iconic looks to appreciate, championing Irish designers like Helen Steele while at home and favouring Gucci over the last 12 months.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

Here she is, at just 15 years before accepting an award at the Critics Choice Movie awards in 2010.

Always one to keep her feet firmly on the ground, later that year she was pictured at the Irish premiere of Shrek 3D at Dublin's Cineworld.

An instant icon was made with her knit hairband promoting the Lovely Bones that year.

Back in 2009, she was an awards show veteran in navy at the IFTAs.

By 2012, elements of her signature style began to emerge.

And in 2013, she was on international best dressed lists after successful appearances at the BAFTAs...

...and the premiere of The Host.

Two years later, she reemerged on the awards season circuit for her second buzzy role in Brooklyn, when she debuted this truly stunning look at the BFI Festival in London.

And kept it real for a charity luncheon appearance in Dublin.

Not to mention her jaw-dropping turn in a glittering emerald Calvin Klein gown at the Oscars in 2016.

She's taken a well deserved break before hitting the promotional trail for Ladybird, for which she just scooped a Best Actress Golden Globe - and became one of the most in-demand actresses to dress...

...in Rodarte at the Independent Spirit Awards.
