We loved Saoirse Ronan’s look at the recent BAFTAs and it’s not just anyone who can pull off a ponytail on the red carpet and still look majorly glam. Even so, we’re already planning our outfits for our payday drinks and we reckon we might try it out ourselves!
A Valentine’s surprise we’ll all love!
What will she wear? We have a few ideas She's done it, so now all attention turns to what is she going to wear. We're crossing our fingers at U HQ that she leaves the older traditional Oscar-style dress to Jennifer Lawrence and continues the super stylish run she's been on while promoting Brooklyn. Just look at her here? As Hollywood's newest kid on the block she can experiment like few others can. So what would we dress Saoirse Ronan in? Well we have a few thoughts in mind Dries Van Noten SS16 She's young, it's fun and it's also incredibly stylish - plus if we're being practical she could totally wear that jacket again! McQueen SS 16 Embellishment and fur? We're in! There's very few people who could carry this off but we reckon Saoirse's complexion would work a treat. Simone Rocha OK so technically this isn't this season, but she's already done YSL Couture so why not Simone Rocha? Rocha is Irish, youthful and uses the most Oscar-worthy fabric. It's the perfect partnership. Chanel Couture SS16 There just are no words. Maybe better shoes though! Marni SS16 Yes!
Our staff editor Natalie Burke gives us her verdict…
Here's our top three movie picks this week We’re in for a quiet week this week but if you do plan on venturing out, make it a trip to the cinema where there are plenty of worthy films to see on the big screen! Can’t decide which to go see first? Here’s our top three movie picks in cinemas this week. Movie: Brooklyn Director: John Crowley Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Emily Bett Rickards, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent Synopsis: Set back in the fashionable 50s, Eilis Lacey (Ronan) emigrates from Enniscorthy, Co.Wexford to the Big Apple. Initially homesick, it’s not long before Eilis drowns her sorrows with a young, handsome Italian. When a tragedy hits home, Eilis returns to Ireland for a visit where she finds herself forced to choose between the her new life in Brooklyn or the life she left behind. There’s sure to be tears and a pretty decent love story or two. Why see it? It has been said that it could be Saoirse’s ticket to the Oscars, a reason all by itself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IM1XhTxPAE Movie: Spectre Director: Sam Mendes Cast: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Monica Belucci and Ralph Fiennes Synopsis: Much like any other Bond movie, Daniel Craig stars as James Bond and it’s not long before he is embroiled in another globe-trotting mission to solve a big mystery – in fact he faces his biggest challenge yet when he finds himself up against a menacing organization called SPECTRE. Why see it: If you’re a Bond fan, it’s clearly a must see. But you’ll also love it if you’re into action movies, or even just good-looking men. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTDaET-JweU Movie: He Named Me Malala Director: Davis Guggenheim Synopsis: Back in October 2012, you might remember learning about Malala Yousafzai, who was just 15 when she was shot in the head on a schoolbus. Why? Because she dared speak out about the rights of young women to be educated while under Taliban rule in her native Pakistan. The whole world watched as she recovered from her injuries and failed to give up on her crusade. Here, Malala tells her story on screen and viewers get an insight into her everyday life since. Why see it? It’s emotional, empowering and the ideal movie if you’re into documentaries, fancy yourself as a bit of a feminist or just enjoy an interesting real life story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cug1-eTOVSk
