The Met Ball 2012

The Met Ball 2012 was held this week and from the pictures circulating, it’s clear that sequins, metallics and a strong lip lipcolour was the name of the game for many of the stylish attendees.

Below are a few of my favourite looks from the night including two of my favourite ladies Jessica Alba and Dianna Agron. However the winner for me was Camilla Belle. the make-up, the hair and that dress… wow!

Kate Moss – Vogue June 2012

Pictures of the June Issue of Vogue have been released and it features a stunning shoot of Versace-clad Olympic goddess Kate Moss.

I really love these images shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott… the colours are amazing and she just looks wow! Killer red lips, glowing skin and those cheekbones! The glossy red lip is everywhere at the moment and Miss Moss certainly knows how to wear it. The hair and make-up has a slightly vintage feel but the overall look has a real rock star edge. LOVE!

Bridal Shoot, Trudder Lodge

Trudder Lodge is a beautiful venue in the quiet surroundings of Newcastle in County Wicklow, just off the N11 and a few months ago I had the pleasure of working with a great group of wedding suppliers on a project that would showcase both this gorgeous venue and our own work.

We had hoped for a lovely sunny, dry day to get some shots of the amazing grounds and gardens that surround the house but unfortunately we got floods and torrential rain! However we certainly weren’t short of photographic opportunities in the house, from the large dining rooms to the stunning bedrooms over looking the gardens, it was a long day but very much worth it and you can see from these shots.

The team consisted of: Dresses by Anne Gregory Design, photgraphy by HolstPhoto, hair by Kate Sophistikates Cleary and flowers & decoration details by Fussy Peacock Design – Wedding and Event Florist.
