Stylewatch: In Vogue
The real winner — no, make that the only winner — of RTE’s reality show Fade Street. Possibly it’s because, as an up-and-coming model-slash-DJ, Vogue, had actually enjoyed a modicum of the spotlight before the show, but since its inception, she is the only one to come out the other end with dignity.
Against a background of co-stars that ranged from the blandly beige, to the hysterically needy, Vogue’s laid-back calm, and laconic, almost mannish charm — it’s a Howth-ladette thing — is a refreshing breath of sanity. Not to mention the recent less-is-more style she’s been working — these highwaisted leather shorts could have come from the closet of one Alexa Chung. Do we foresee a breakaway series?
