If like us you're obsessed with Netflix's hit show Baby Reindeer, we wanted to take a moment to salute British actress Jessica Gunning. The 38-year-old has catapulted to fame practically overnight via her portrayal of unhinged stalker Martha Scott in the new show. In case you haven't seen it (seriously start bingeing now) Baby Reindeer is based on a true story that recounts the relentless campaign of stalking and harassment Scottish comedian Richard Gadd endured at the hands of a woman called Fiona Harvey (known as "Martha" in the show). Gadd is the creator and writer of Baby Reindeer which has also captured him into the spotlight, along with Gunning and real-life stalker Scott. Incidentally, Scott just did a television interview with Pier's Morgan and it will blow your mind.

Back to the subject of "Martha". While there's no denying she is next-level mad crazy with her fierce Scottish accent and chilling high-pitched laugh, we think she kinda had a cute style vibe. And just like Gunning nailed the character of "Martha" the actress has emerged as our new style crush with her penchant for florals, monochromatic looks, and fondness for a coastal grandma cardigan.

Ahead: Gunning's best on and off-screen style moments. Let's hope she's back on the screen soon, we miss her already.

Cute Cardigans

There's no denying Martha loved a granny cardigan and wore plenty of cute ones in Baby Reindeer. Like this purple cardi with sweet love hearts, she wore over a black dress.

Martha loved color and textures (and clashing them together) almost as much as she loved Donny. This cute pink textured top which she accessorized with an antique brooch and bold pink lipstick almost made us fall in love with her.

Gunning makes a powerful style statement in red on the red carpet. As a plus-size woman, she understands the allure of draping and detailing on a dress.

Dramatic Florals

Another day, another dramatic texture and print. Gunning shows off her unique style in this long- sleeve maxi dress with floral and nature-inspired motifs.

Like Gunning, dramatic florals will always bring a smile to your face and we love how she teams this long black floral jacket with a simple black dress. Oh and let's not forget the matching orange manicure.

Statement Top

Long before she was "Martha" Gunning had great style. This is probably one of our favorite looks, we love how she elevated a simple white blazer and black pant combo with a glam embellished green statement top.
