Someone’s hoping to channel the luck of the Irish.

Saoirse Ronan has cleaned up this award season, but that doesn’t mean she can’t use a little extra luck on the biggest night of the year. Ronan hit the 88th annual Academy Awards red carpet in a dazzling green sequined gown, which she said was chosen in honor of Ireland.

Not only is the actress Irish herself, but so is her character in Brooklyn for which her performance is up for the Best Actress award. Ronan’s dress isn’t her only nod to Ireland, the actress also wore one green and one white earring to round out her complete good luck charm ensemble.
