Saoirse Ronan (pronounced sir-sha) first caught my attention back in 2011 when she was in the movie Hanna (if you haven’t seen it already make sure you do!) She was quite intriguing back then – a little known teenage actress with an untainted smile and air of innocence about her. Today her candid expression remains, yet as soon as she is put in front of the camera she transforms like a chameleon to fit her surroundings. And it seems as though I haven’t been the only one to take note of her powerful gaze. In the past year we have seen her in both US and UK Vogue, and also US InStyle. To add to her already excitingly strong editorial portfolio, this month Rankin shot her for the cover of Dazed and Confused as a clinical ice queen. Can you believe she is only 18?!
