"Loving" star Ruth Negga has made quite a sartorial mark recently — she made our best-dressed list for 2016, for starters — and it seems her fashion prowess will continue into the coming year. At the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards where she took home the "Rising Star" award, the Irish actress chose a gown from Valentino's spring 2017 collection. 

The sheer dress is equal parts ethereal and whimsical, making for a stunning addition to the array of eclectic (yet always impeccable) looks Negga's stylist, Karla Welch, has helped the rising fashion icon cultivate. Because the dress itself has a lot going on, Negga went natural with her hair and makeup and kept accessories to a minimum. She left her neck bare, allowing the silhouette of the dress to stand out, wearing a Gemfields ruby ring as her only piece of jewelry. With a look this good starting off the New Year, suffice it to say we're excited to see Negga's continued style evolution over the coming months.
