‘Irish Examiner’ fashionista among style stars

Irish Examiner fashion columnist Annmarie O’Connor is up there with Ireland’s top 20 Style Stars.

RTÉ rounded up a varied bunch of well-known faces — stylists, journalists, actors, and designers — for their revamped online fashion gallery.

“It’s so lovely to be included in RTÉ.ie’s Style Stars, especially alongside such big names like Amy Huberman and Colin Farrell,” said Ms O’Connor.

Ms O’Connor, who has been writing fashion columns for the Irish Examiner for four years, is pictured in the gallery attending a fashion event last Christmas. RTÉ journalist Sarah McIntyre, who chose the picture, describes Ms O’Connor as “always impeccably dressed”.

Also included is actress Saoirse Ronan in a knife- pleated cream dress. She is lauded for her “red carpet” style.

Imelda May, who is pregnant with her first child, is also featured, sans bump. The singer was recently pictured five months pregnant in a tight, leopard print dress as she prepared to take the stage.

Cork-born actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is also on McIntyre’s top 20 style stars for being able to wear a very low V-neck T-shirt like no other man.

Actress Amy Huberman was chosen for her decidedly feminine outfits that perfectly compliment her petite frame.

And, asked Ms McIntyre, how could they leave out Colin Farrell wearing a simple black suit? “Whether dressed up or down, he always looks great,” she said.

Designer Simone Rocha is also featured for making a big name for herself in the fashion industry with her masculine edged clothing.
