Saoirse Ronan In Simone Rocha – Irish Film And Television Awards

Saoirse Ronan In Simone Rocha - Irish Film And Television AwardsSaoirse Ronan recently took a rather casual stroll down the red carpet at the Irish Film and Television Awards at the Convention Centre Dublin in Ireland.

She wore a look from designer Simone Rocha’s Fall 2012 collection, which was actually the young up-and-comer’s first runway show.

The boyish shape of the sharply cut dress got a dose of peek-a-boo provocativeness with its bra-flashing, sheer sides. But the shiny fabric didn’t photograph as richly as I would have liked.

The Irish actress pared down the model’s styling by skipping the frilly neck collar and the towering crochet hat. While those accessories might have been out of place, just as puzzling was that ponytail with its ’90s crimping.

Saoirse did, however, steal those purposefully clunky brogues with the Perspex soles straight off the runway, which definitely put the street in this statement. The starkness of the white shoe didn’t work so well here, though.

They also reminded me of a more intentional version of Kristen Stewart’s infamous red-carpet Converse kicks.

    I dunno, even though it may be event-inappropriate, I like it in a Chloe Sevigny kind of way.

    Not a fan of the dress but it could’ve worked with a better styling – her hair and shoe choice are way off.

      Nothing about this look is working.

    A no to every single misbegotten bit of it. No, no, no.

    The dress is OK, I kind of like the idea of the fabric but the shoes and hair are not working.

    The dress is okay although imo Rocha has better stuff than this but the styling is very poor.
