I finally rented Hanna last night, and this girl blew me away. So, of course, I immediately googled her to find out who she is, where she came from, and what’s next for this star on the rise. If she looks familiar, you may recognize her from breakout roles in the The Lovely Bones and Atonement, among a host of other lesser known titles. Though I’d be willing to bet that we’ll be seeing her name in lights a lot more often in the days to come.
Her name is Saoirse Ronan (pronounced “Sairsha,” “Sersha,” or even “Seersha”; according to her, all three are acceptable), and she is a seventeen-year-old, Irish actress who’s already got one Oscar nomination (Atonement) under her belt.
The more I learned, the more I liked about this stunning, yet down-to-earth young lady. Not to mention, I’m on board to follow the beginnings of what promises to be a highly fashionable style evolution. Just look how far she’s already come since her first Academy Awards appearance at the ripe old age of thirteen:
I’m also loving her adorable casual style. So LuLu*s!
