There’s no doubt that Saoirse Ronan regularly takes risks when it comes to style, but somehow, everyone seemed to miss what might be her most daring look to date.
The Lady Bird star visited The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon Wednesday in a seriously sexy jumpsuit from Brazilian label Alexandrine’s Fall 2017 collection. The black long sleeved velvet number features a cutout running all the way down the right leg. Her skin is covered in a panel of French lace that drapes across her collarbone and down her side, exposing everything from her right arm to her hip to her ankle. The back is completely open save for the lace, showcasing everything but her behind. The lace is covered with Swarovski crystals, giving the edgy ensemble a glamorous twist. She heightened the sex appeal with sky-high Giuseppe Zanotti black platform sandals with a crystal knot.
Somehow, no one is talking about this sleek look on the young woman known for her love of blazers, youthful patterns, and sometimes edgy yet still conservative attire — like the one sleeved black gown she wore to the Golden Globes on Sunday, with structured shoulders and silver paneling.

That doesn’t mean Ronan doesn’t know how to do sexy, especially on late night talk shows. In December, the actress appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in a teeny black leather mini dress.
