She’s best known for playing kooky sidekick Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter franchise.

But Evanna Lynch’s days in Dumbledore’s Army are long behind her, and the actress certainly looked poles apart from her famous alter-ego when she attended the annual IFTA Awards in Dublin on Saturday night.

The 24-year-old beauty was the picture of elegance in a sophisticated, strapless dress as she celebrated the Irish film industry.

The Irish beauty gave a nod to Luna’s quirky sense of style, however, matching her manicure to her jewel coloured dress and sporting a dramatic pair of drop earrings.

The talented starlet wore her blonde locks pinned back in a chic chignon with a tousled crown – a far cry from the matted mass of curls she sported for the popular film franchise.
