Dublin Style in Grazia

UK fashion mag Grazia, appeared in our fair city last week to photograph some of Ireland’s most on-trend and stylish peeps out and about on a sunny afternoon. The Grazia team chatted to TV3 – Video in the morning before heading into town to snap the most stylish peeps they could lay their eyes on. Even though all the people who were photographed were involved in fashion to some extent… fashion bloggers, PR’s, journos, buyers, brand managers, stylists… which I though was a bit strange as there are LOADS of way stylish ladies (and chaps) I see in Dublin everyday who aren’t involved in the fashion industry. I guess they were all in hiding that day or just didn’t get papped! Boo.

Anyway, the final 18 pics are up on the site… here are my top 3…

Grazia Style Hunter Dublin

Left: Lynn Hunter mixes up high street and designer with this gorgeous Warehouse abstract print dress, blue suede Penney’s pumps and Marc Jacobs bag. I think the bag is a little heavy, but the rest of the outfit teamed with tousled hair and perfect pins is a total style hit.

Centre: Arsheen Qasim teams 50’s Teddy Boy with Native American chic by pulling pieces from the high street: shoes Penney’s, jeans Topshop, shirt H&M, to accompany this a fabulous thrift-shop waistcoat. I like the way the look changes so dramatically from the pretty embroidery detailing and ultra-feminine, sleek hair do, to the tomboy turn-ups and lace-ups. Really different and refreshing.

Right: Blanaid Hennessy was the most on-trend of the ladies photographed, going with statement heels from Penney’s, a glam belt and fierce shoulder-massive top, both thrift shops, but playing the look right down for daytime with these gorgeous, plain-coloured pegleg trousers. Heart this look.

    I agree, we are missing a bit of spontaneity here, all the looks are so put together but hey…they are AMAZING!

    Love Arsheen’s outfit!

    Some of them looked a bit staged alright, I felt let down as I thought Style Hunter was an impromptu on the street thing. Quoted “as stylish as new york” is great to hear about Dublin though!

      Oh totally, me too, if you look at the other cities it seems to be the case that the people photographed are just seen on the streets.
      I’m not sure what happened here at all, maybe it was pre-planned, maybe Dubs are a little shy?! Whatever it was, it was pretty dissappointing.

    I’m totally p****d off that this was so staged though Blanaid does look gorgeous. I think there is plenty of Fashion Interest on the streets in Dublin. Maybe we should do a bloggers day on the streets and all of us go out with our cameras for a few hours and see what we come up with? What do you think?

    Blanaid is looking all kinds of fierce here!
    Defo agree with everyone about the staging though.. x
