Ronan opted for her typically understated elegance in a strapless pink gown custom made my Calvin Klein.

Her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman wouldn't divulge details about the secretive dress, only telling W magazine on Friday that "a big part of the reference is the sky."

She was joined by her mother Monica, who said earlier this year, that she "beams with pride every day" at her daughter's success.

Ronan is in esteemed company for tonight's awards, competing against favourite Frances McDormand, Sally Hawkins, Meryl Streep and Margot Robbie her category.
