Irish stars raise the style stakes at the Golden Globes


Irish stars set the red carpet alight at last night’s Golden Globes with their fashion choices.

Although our hopes for a statue were cruelly dashed, the Irish contingent still won in the style stakes and no one more than Saoirse Ronan.

The Carlow beauty looked ethereal in her Yves Saint Laurent Grecian inspired white gown – sending social media into a frenzy over her outfit.

The 21-year-old nominated actress brought a fresh look to the awards with the simple but striking look which was matched perfectly with paired back hair and make-up.

Meanwhile, Outlander star Caitriona Balfe brought some drama to the awards with her McQueen black Gothic inspired dress.

The couture gown included ruffle detailing at the shoulders, lace overlay and gathered tulle at the hem.

The statuesque Monaghan native opted for a low slicked back ponytail and minimal make-up to let her outfit do the talking.

It was also a night for Irish men as Michael Fassbender and film-maker Lenny Abrahamson’s walked the red carpet in style.

The Kerry man wore famed designer Tom Ford and a Chopard watch while Room director Lenny wore a Burberry tux.


Both the Irish men’s leading ladies also wowed at the US awards with Michael’s girlfriend Alicia Vikander reinforcing the winter white trend in an elegant sequinned Louis Vutton apron dress.

While Room’s Brie Larson, who scooped the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture in a Drama, dazzled in a Calvin Klein collection halter neck alongside the film’s director Lenny.

However it wasn’t all about the stars who walked the red carpet but the designers who made the gowns.

Irish designers Eamonn McGill and Don O’Neill both saw their creations make an appearance at the awards.

Kerry man Don helped actress Jane Wu look utterly glam in a metallic Theia creation at the event.

While Eamonn, who has dressed Amanda Byram, Holly Carpenter and Nadia Forde, made his Golden Globes debut.
