When it comes to celebrity style, the New Year signals only thing: awards season. As we try to furiously cram in twice-weekly trips to the cinema before the Golden Globe Awards on January 10, for the stars it means endless fittings and meetings with their stylists. While we can’t wait to see what red carpet confections the big-name nominees rock-up in, such as Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence, we thought we’d give a heads up on the emerging talent to have on your style radar.

Saoirse Ronan

Strictly speaking, Saoirse (pronounced Seer-sha, in case you were wondering) is not new to the red carpet; the New York-born, Dublin-based actress has been quietly beavering away on films ever since she got her big break when, aged 12, she starred opposite Keira Knightley in Atonement.

Now 21, 2016 is set to be her year after her performance in Brooklyn has seen her nominated for awards at both the Golden Globe and SAGs. This will call for plenty of red carpet garb, and we’re confident her stylist, fellow Irishwoman, Grace Moore, will deliver. Ronan is clearly a young woman who likes to experiment with silhouettes and colourways; she’s worn everyone from Emilia Wickstead to Burberry so far, always with an effortless approach.

Brie Larson

Prepare to see a lot more of Larson, for mid-January sees the release ofRoom, the film in which Larson plays a kidnapped mother. Her performance has earned her an award for a Golden Globe and a SAG Award, meaning she’ll be attending every pre-awards luncheon Hollywood has to offer.

Fans of TV series Outlander will already have Balfe on their radar. The 36-year-old plays Claire Beauchamp in the hit show, and is looking to add a Golden Globe to her trophy cabinet – not bad for a model-turned-actress.

The Dublin-born beauty used to be a regular on the international catwalks, walking frequently for luxury fashion houses Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton during her twenties. Her model poise certainly stands out on the red carpet: just check out her stance at last year’s SAG Awards in London label Solace.

If you’re not already familiar with Vikander, then may we ask under which rock you have been hiding for the past year? The 27-year-old Swede broke out with three films this year (four if you count The Danish Girl, released in the UK on January 1) and picked up a modelling assignment for Louis Vuitton along the way.

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton, December 20152016 looks set to be just as busy; her performance alongside Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl has put her in the running for accolades at both the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes. We’re sure she’ll tackle both with just the same amount of Scandi minimalism that has made her such a refreshing fixture on the red carpet so far.

After five years and 52 episodes playing maid Anna Bates in Downton Abbey, Joanne Froggatt might just have something to celebrate if her stars align on January 10, when she’ll find out if she’s bagged the Best Supporting Actress role at the Golden Globes.

The 35-year-old has recently found her red carpet groove thanks to celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, who works with Jessica Alba and Rashida Jones, and is a co-host on Fashion Police. The difference in her style has been dramatic: instead of blending into the background, she’s embraced flowing gowns and embellished minidresses to make an impact. RIP Mrs Bates.

Joanne Froggatt in J. MendelMaika Monroe

Her name may mean nothing to you now (aside to its similarities to a certain late, famous Ms Monroe), but a trip to the cinema in 2016 will make Maika Monroe pretty unavoidable: the photogenic blonde is set to star in six films over the next 12 months, including blockbusterIndependence Day: Resurgence.

Monroe at the GQ Awards in JanuaryThe 22-year-old ticks off all the qualities you’d expect in a twenty-something, California-born movie star: pretty, athletic… yet she really does fulfil the latter, as she was on course to become a professional kiteboarder before Hollywood came knocking, even moving to the Dominican Republic in order to train full-time. We think she’s still finding her feet when it comes to narrowing down her signature red carpet look, which will make her ascent in 2016 all the more interesting.

Deutch is another relative newcomer who is set to assert herself on the style circuit in 2016, thanks to seven new film releases (catch her first up alongside Zac Efron in Dirty Grandpa).

Deutch in DiorThe 21-year-old turned heads in Dior at this year’s Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, and has hit all the right notes in designs by Sportmax and Tanya Taylor at previous industry events. With her classic looks, we wouldn’t be surprised if a big beauty or fashion house signed her up before the year is out.
