Ruth Negga Is The Master of Ladylike Style

2016's breakout style star has gorgeously refined taste.

In these high fashion moments that take our breath away, Loving star Ruth Negga shows over and over again how elegant it is to eschew skimpy outfits for more modest pieces that really accentuate the figure in a fresh way. Get to know her breakout style before she becomes mega huge—and possibly nabs an Oscar!—in 2017.

This gold lamé shirtdress from Juno is part of the label's Fall collection—and it looks even more stunning with the addition of playful sunnies.

Marc Jacobs made this super sexy embroidered lace gown for the Loving premiere at a festival. Where others might have yielded to the temptation to show tons of flesh underneath, designer and muse both made the lovely choice to give the dress—and the woman—a bit of mystery.

It's hard to decide what's most beautiful about Ruth in Rodarte for the New York City premiere of Loving: the dramatic draping, or her smooth confidence.

With sheer overlays and sweet details, a playful Prada frock was a perfect choice for a Hollywood Foreign Press Association event in Toronto. The label also created the show-stopping green gown Ruth wore at People's "Ones to Watch" event. The style moment prompted Vogue to ask, "Is Actress Ruth Negga Poised to Be a Prada Muse?"

Valentino was also a go-to for important red carpet events this year. Ruth sported chin-to-toe Valentino fabulousness for two Loving premieres, wearing saintly white in Los Angeles and siren red in Paris. But wait, there's more! Ruth stopped traffic with a slinky tropical parrot dress at the Toronto Film Festival, then showed off this almost-too-beautiful-to-be-worn gown worn at a Foreign Press Association event.

Vogue's January cover star looks radiant in Alexander Wang. It all may feel very prim and polite right now, but here's betting that couture houses will get to fighting over her next year.
