Despite the array of eye-catching, creative and crazy ensembles on Monday night's Met Gala prink carpet, Saoirse Ronan and Sinead Burke managed to stand out.

Saoirse (25) channelled her inner warrior with a red Gucci sequined gown with power shoulders of golden dragons and green and silver chest 'armour'.

The Lady Bird star turned heads with her stunning gown for her second Met Gala appearance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The three-time Oscar nominee has been slaying the red carpet in recent months, working with her stylist Elizabeth Saltzman.

Also causing a stir and representing Ireland on the night was educator, advocate and Vogue contributor Sinead Burke who wore a black velvet gown with blue bows on a dramatic neclkine, teamed with a gold headband.

Sinead took to social media earlier in the evening to ask her followers to wish her luck
