Negga who is Irish from her mother’s side just became culture ambassador for Ireland. When asked about her style earlier she said that fashion is her armour.

I suppose fashion is an armour really, isn’t it, for nerves. I think there’s a lot of shy people involved in fashion, although people seem flamboyant, I think it hides a shyness. I suppose I’m a shy attention seeker.
