Pippa O'Connor set to top off successful year with Christmas in Dubai with her family
It was a case of Happy Mondays. Everyone from Nadia Forde, Cassie Stokes to Diana Bunici pitched up in all of their finery for the launch of the debut collection, denim POCO by Pippa has at the RHA Gallery in Dublin last Monday.
Though, I'm sure, every Monday is happy Monday for the designer-of-the-moment, Pippa O'Connor.
My Deep Throat in her camp tells me that the star and her husband, Brian, are planning on jetting to Dubai over the Christmas for a well-deserved Yuletide break.
The reason I say that this scheduled sojourn in the United Arab Emirates is well earned is because Pippa O'Connor has had a great year by anyone's standards. Everything she touches seems to turn to gold.
Which used to be said of Christian Stokes, back in the days when he was running Residence in the boom with his brother Simon... This was before it all went sour - and he and his bro were not returning PAYE and PRSI for employees on their wages. But I digress.
Last weekend the party is doubtless back on because, Christian, and his wife Louise were at dinner in Wilde in the Westbury with stylist Ingrid Hoey and her husband Neil. Louise looked fab in a patterned sleeveless top.
Isn't life grand?
