Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has featured on the latest cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

The magazine has released their 2016 Hollywood Portfolio, focusing on the fierce women in the industry.

They have also focused on the 13 best performances of the last year.

Renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz took the photos.

Among those featuring are Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita N'yongo, Brie Larson, Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Diane Keaton, Viola Davis and Alicia Vikander.

On Ronan, the publication says: "Lou Reed may not have written the Velvet Underground song "Pale Blue Eyes" picturing Saoirse Ronan (How could he? She wasn’t born yet), but every close-up of this Irish American actress wafts its lyrics toward us".

"Especially in Brooklyn, adapted from Colm Tóibín’s novel by fellow novelist Nick Hornby, where Ronan’s uplifted glances, snowdrop complexion, and demure poise as Eilis Lacey, an immigrant trying to find her place in the raucous melting pot of New York, achieve the wistful beauty of a ballad and won Ronan an Oscar nomination for best actress".
