What I’ve been up to May 8 2012

I’ve been pretty busy of late with trips to London to shoot for The Green Magazine’s June issue and I am working on a feature for their July issue too! I’m so excited to be working with such a great publication and lovely team. I am also so happy to have a new agent, Kellie at TalentBase, who will be looking after me and all the work I am doing! Here’s to a great relationship with them! This week I get to go to the premiere of Dark Shadows in the Lighthouse Cinema which is a great excuse to get dressed up! Plus Champion Sports are having a press event tomorrow, which is perfect timing since I have just rejoined the gym and I need some new gear!

Just some small changes to note too! This blog is going to be kept for all my own style posts and pics and all the news and what’s going on in the world of fashion will on www.styleisle.ie so make sure you subscribe to it!

Next week will be even more exciting as I get to go to London again with Boohoo.com for a great blogger event so make sure you read all about it over on styleisle!


So what have I been up to?

Gosh it’s been ages since I posted up here. Most of my effort these days are going into http://www.styleisle.ie which is growing and I am so grateful to all my dedicated readers! Since January, I have had a hectic few months. I’ve written a great summer feature for The Richmond Green magazine in London and we are working on a shoot for them too, I have become involved in the Enable Ireland Give up Clothes for Good campaign and there is a great feature coming up in U Magazine shortly, and I am shooting a movie this weekend, where I am Head of Costume! The styleisle empire is growing and thanks to a lot of hard work and some great people I have met along the way, I couldn’t be happier. Fashion week was great as always and the Irish were strongly represented both on the catwalk and in the audience. I had my photo taken for Elle Japan! Anyway, thanks for all your support and keep reading my personal posts here (I promise there will be more) and styleisle.ie!

New Season wishlist

I don’t know why I do it to myself. But I always log onto Net a porter at the start of each season and make my wishlist. I know. It’s torture. Thankfully if I can just get inspired then that’s good enough for me. So here are my picks. So far 🙂

Chicer by the day (is that even a word)

I love the highlights. She looks chic and her style is maturing. I’m starting to like Mrs. R Pattinson again. Keep up the good work Lady K!

The half smile is almost endearing.

MTV Movie Awards 2010 – style stars and not so stars

Happy bank holiday or in other parts of the world, Happy Monday and I hope work is going well for you today. Styleisle is being broadcast from the comfy chairs in Starbucks Blackrock this morning over a very frothy latte and sticky and sweet muffin.

This morning is the style aftermath of the MTV Movie Awards which were on in LA last night and already the onliners are a-buzz with the gossip. I have been checking out what my blog buddies have been saying and there is consensus which is always a good sign when you are trying to make it in the world of fashion. Not that there was anything unexpected really. Except that Kristen actually smiled on the red carpet and appeared to be in a good mood after her little media faux pas during the week. Didn’t stop me from buying Elle with her on the cover of it. Even the most minor scandal sells.

Well here is the result from the styleisle jury:

Whitney Port looking summery and happy in lellow. I like this. It’s her and it’s cute. She doesn’t try to be, or dress like someone she’s not, and that’s the most appealing attribute methinks.

Lovely Scarlett in emerald green. This is a sophisticated look from her which is a departure from the sultry which she rocks quite often. This dress reminds me of a Pearl Lowe creation.

Aside from the usual moody facade, I like the dress. She looks great in fairness. And the smile is working. Keep it up Kris. Your boyf is hot, you have a lot to be happy about.

Bizarre. But very her. Think I’ll try this out at the IFTAs next year, what do ya think?  Tavi will have royal blue hair next. Katie I hope you realise you have now set a trend.

The lovely Anna Kendrink. As always, she is now firmly on the style map after the Pucci number at the BAFTAs and the beautiful dusky pink Elie Saab dress at the Oscars. Don’t ever fire this stylist.

Lady Gaga…oh no sorry it’s Christina Aguilera.
