Model Faye Dinsmore puts wedding on hold for major modelling deal in New York
Model Faye Dinsmore is set to head to New York after joining one of the most prestigious agencies in the world.
The Donegal native has been signed up by Ford Models, the Herald can reveal, and will fly to the US for several weeks later in the summer to start meeting potential clients.
Ford Models has helped the careers of many superstars, including Elle Macpherson, Christy Turlington and Christie Brinkley, as well as British heart-throb David Gandy.
Redhead Faye is also on the books of agencies in London, Paris and Barcelona and is looked after by Distinct Model Management in Dublin.
"Faye is in Spain at the moment, but her visa for America came through two weeks ago so she'll be heading over there soon," a spokesperson told the Herald.
"They are very interested in her over there and think she can do very well - plus she has a couple of jobs lined up already, which is really positive."
The 25-year-old beauty is so busy at the moment that she and her Wicklow-born fiance, Paddy Cosgrave, have had little time to plan their wedding, despite getting engaged two years ago.
Faye's long-term partner, who is the brains behind the Dublin Web Summit, proposed in June 2012.
"They're still engaged, just very busy," the spokesperson confirmed.
Since breaking into the fashion industry, Faye has become one of Ireland's most sought-after catwalk queens and spends most of her time globetrotting with Paddy whenever she's not working in front of the camera.
The Trinity College graduate, who has a degree in French and Classics, has featured in a number of high-profile shoots, including campaigns for L'Oreal, Raymond Weil, Ralph Lauren and Lynx.
