Jessie Buckley was among the best dressed stars at last night’s Academy Awards.

The Killarney native was nominated for her role in the 2021 psychological Netflix drama The Lost Daughter, which is based on the 2006 Elena Ferrante novel of the same name, but lost out to Ariana Debose for her role in West Side Story.

Jessie stunned in a custom pastel pink satin floor-length Erdem gown with a plunging neckline, which she paired with a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes.

The 32-year-old had her trademark cropped hair styled in an orange bowl cut for the occasion.

And for the Vanity Fair afterparty, Jessie opted for an understated look on the red carpet, stepping out in a black Moschino suit complete with embellished sleeves.

She, along with other stars such as Jamie Lee Curtis, also wore a blue ribbon pinned to her outfit which said ‘With Refugees’ in support of Ukraine.

While Jessie didn’t scoop up an Oscar this year, the community in her hometown of Killarney are still immensely proud of her and are planning to hold a civic reception for the star.

Marie Moloney, Mayor of Killarney, said: “We have always wished her all the very best because we are all so very proud of her.

“She’s always going to be a star in our eyes.


“The nomination alone was fantastic and - win or lose - we are all incredibly proud of her.”

Ms Moloney continued: “She has done an amount for Killarney and both herself and Michael Fassbender, who is also from Killarney, have always been very proud of where they come from.

“They’ve never forgotten where they came from, no matter how successful they have become.

“I will be looking to hold a civic reception in her honour.

“Even if she hasn’t won, she deserves a reception in her honour in Killarney.”
