Saoirse Ronan In Lanvin – ‘The Host’ LA Premiere

Saoirse Ronan In Lanvin - 'The Host' LA Premiere

Saoirse Ronan attended the ‘The Host’ LA premiere held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California with co-star Diane Kruger last night.

I hate to say this out loud, but I was a tad disappointed by her Lanvin Spring 2013 dress.

The Irish actress usually uses the red carpet to showcase a new designer or an edgy piece; however, this falls into neither category.

While I don’t hate the dress – the maroon colour is gorgeous and I do like the black side bow – this is very blah for someone like Saoirse, right down to the Hollywood black pumps by Lanvin.

Being so young, she has the chance to continue to experiment with fashion; I just wish last night had been one of the nights she’d excited rather than blended in.

EF Collection and J/Hadley onyx jewels completed her look.

    I like the dress, but I agree with CK. She looks underdressed for the premiere.

    the dress is fine..she’s the meh..from lackluster hair to boring accessories..meh

    This is too plain for a premiere.

      Seriously this is so disappointing.

        Agree, very very disappointing for her own movie premiere.

        PS: But i love the color!

    My biggest issue is her hair. Very lackluster. The shoes and dress are nice on her.

    • Anj March 20, 2013 at 16:46 #

      I agree completely. The color of her dress is divine and the shoes work. Her hair is ruining the sleek look as is that sad bracelet.

    i love it…such a great colour on her…i would just prefer more interesting shoes…she looks classy and effortless like a young Blanchett!

  6. Anne March 20, 2013 at 12:56 #

    I actually really like this look! The shoes are a tad boring, but I don’t hate them. The messy (blonder!) hair works to make this a tad edgier.

      Anne, you plucked the thoughts directly from my brain!

  7. Joana March 20, 2013 at 13:15 #

    She looks elegant without effort.

  8. Yeliz March 20, 2013 at 13:20 #

    She looks nice but so boring for a movie premiere in which she stars as the leading lady. This could have been perfect for a photocall.

    • Catherine Kallon March 20, 2013 at 14:11 #

      I forgot is the leading lady. Diane stole her thunder

  9. Neli March 20, 2013 at 14:02 #

    I like it!

  10. Jai March 20, 2013 at 14:06 #

    I like it! Effortless cool.

  11. Beta March 20, 2013 at 14:40 #

    I absolutely love the dress. And she wears it so much better than the model (who’s painfully thin)
    Not so much the shoes though.

  12. kane March 20, 2013 at 14:46 #

    Hm, nothing really wrong with it, but also really nothing to get excited about. I love the pink pop on the runway. Saoirse’s take on the look is missing something like it.

  13. Soraya March 20, 2013 at 15:18 #

    She looks absolutely perfect dressed for the occasion. It is a movie premiere, not a party or a ball. In fact lots of stars are overdressed for premieres.

  14. Rebecca Z March 20, 2013 at 15:50 #

    I really like this, tho perhaps it is a bit underplayed for a premiere. I think she looks sophisticated and chic and I also agree with Anne about the messy hair. I like the simplicity of this look and the fabulous rich color of the dress.

  15. adrian March 20, 2013 at 19:27 #

    If it weren’t for the shoes, I’d be OVER THE MOON about this look.

  16. ash March 20, 2013 at 22:11 #

    I really like this look, she’s giving me this really cool and chic vibe which I think really makes this work, I like how it kinda feels “I just got out of bed”.

  17. Cookie March 20, 2013 at 22:13 #

    This must be her version of a style experiment or stepping out of her comfort zone. It’s really not too bad.

  18. Mandy March 21, 2013 at 10:32 #

    I actually really like this. Sometimes i think actress can be too overdone at premieres especially when they wear award-season-worthy dresses all year round. I don’t mind her dialing it back.

  19. EmmaWoodhouse March 22, 2013 at 02:47 #

    She needs to step it up. The color is gorgeous, but the rest of look is as flat as week-old soda. It’s her premiere!!!

  20. TeaAtTwo March 22, 2013 at 03:13 #

    Plain styling but I like the dress. This dress with Diane’s Choo booties and styling would’ve made a really good look.

  21. Kathy March 22, 2013 at 17:30 #

    We have this expectation for young celebrities to bring a ton of variety to the red carpet (plus, most have stylists so there’s really no excuse to look mediocre). While I’m not a huge fan of this look, I do like the rich fabric and beautiful color. However, I don’t like the shoes, and she could have livened up her hair.
