Irish actress Saoirse Ronan came to fame after a scene-stealing role in Atonement alongside Keira Knightley that brought filmmakers (and the Academy — she earned a supporting actress nomination at that year’s Oscars) clambering to her door. Roles in Hanna and The Lovely Bones quickly followed, as did parts in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and 2015’s Brooklyn, which also earned her a Best Actress nomination. And with these roles came a myriad of red carpet opportunities. From the start, Ronan has had a penchant for big names and bold shoes, favoring Valentino, Lanvin, and Proenza Schouler anchored by sky-high Louboutins. Though, as she rose to new heights with films like Lady Bird, she didn’t dare tame her adventurous streak on the red carpet. In fact, in recent years, she’s tended to gravitate toward Alessandro Michele’s outré take on Gucci. She’s certainly not going to let frequent co-star Timothée Chalamet have all the fashion fun. Here, look back at her biggest red carpet hits.
