It's all coming up roses for the birthday girl
STUNNING Miss Universe Ireland, Rozanna Purcell, struck a pose for photographer James Horan to launch one of the highlights of the summer's social calendar.
Rozanna, who came seventh at the Miss Universe contest last week, was photographed in St Stephen's Green yesterday to launch the Diamant Best Dressed Lady competition at Leopardstown races tomorrow. Rozanna will join Andrea Roche as a judge at the contest.
The up-and-coming young model, whose parents, Cecily and John, own Orwell Stud in Thurles, Co Tipperary, turns 20 today and will celebrate with a family outing at the races.
Rozanna travels to New York next month to begin a year long contract with Trump Model Management, owned by Donald Trump.
"They want me to spend the first two months building my portfolio and altering my look," she said. "They want to bring me back to one hair colour but they don't want me to lose weight."
