Then and now: The Assets models Christmas party 2015 vs 2008
In 2008, the Irish model was at her peak.
Bikini photocalls were aplenty, 'Bebo babes' were actually a thing and Georgia Penna was still Salpa living in Dublin. Every year, one of the top Irish modelling agencies Assets would throw their annual Christmas party to much fanfare, but none moreso than in 2008.
As the agency celebrated its annual festive bash over the weekend and the evolution of the Irish model was never more apparent...
