Saoirse shines among Oscars elite in shoot for 'Vanity Fair'
Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has proved that she belongs among Hollywood's elite after landing on the cover of a world-famous magazine.
The Carlow native appeared on the front cover of 'Vanity Fair' alongside some of the world's biggest female movie stars, including Cate Blanchett and Helen Mirren.
Shot by leading celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, the feature focuses on 'Hollywood's Fiercest Women', which includes Saoirse and her fellow nominees for best actress at the Oscars this month.
The 'Hollywood Issue' also features additional intimate portraits of the stars from photographer Leibovitz and shows 21-year-old Saoirse looking relaxed in a casual black jumper and barely-there make-up.
Saoirse has had a fantastic year with her latest movie 'Brooklyn', based on the best-selling novel by Colm Tóibín, up for Best Motion Picture at the Oscars, while Saoirse is up for Best Actress.
