Rising Irish star Barry Keoghan hits the red carpet alongside glittering girlfriend Shona
It's relatively early days in Irish actor Barry Keoghan's career, but he already knows how to make a splash on an A-list red carpet.
The 24-year-old, from Summerhill in Dublin's north inner city, hit the red carpet on Thursday night for the premiere of The Killing of a Sacred Deer in London as part of the BFI's London Film Festival. Despite being joined by Oscar-winning actresses Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone and Irish actor Colin Farrell, Keoghan looked completely at home as expected, having got his first time of international attention at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
Barry, who was named as one of industry bible Variety's '10 actors to watch' list, was joined by his long-term girlfriend, makeup artist Shona Guerin, who dazzled in an asymmetric champagne hued metallic gown, while her other half opted for a two piece suit by Dior. The French fashion house has taken him under its fashionable wing, giving him a front row seat during Men's Fashion Week in Paris earlier this year.
"Dior makes me look good and I make Dior look good. The gear they put me in was good," he told WWD in June of his relationship with the brand. Keoghan is earning early rave reviews for his latest turn on the big screen, sending Farrell's world into disarray when he takes him under his wing. "Everyone seems to hate me or think I’m evil. I guess that means I did my job," he said of his role in the psychological horror.
Much like his younger counterpart, Farrell also chose to wear a designer with him he has a long-lasting relationship: Dolce & Gabbana. Kidman, meanwhile, glittered in a strapless metallic Prada gown and Stone, who is in town for the film festival, came out to support her famous friends and director Yorgos Lanthimos in a Givenchy jumpsuit.
