THERE are definitely perks to being stylist to one of Ireland's hottest exports -- and that's what Dubliner Grace Moore found out when she gained entry to some of the biggest shows at London Fashion Week.
Grace, who regularly styles Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan, is becoming known as the 19-year-old's fashion guru.
The Host actress will be unable to attend the event next month, so she let Grace go instead.
"Saoirse got invited, so I'm really going in her place," an excited Grace told the Herald. "I didn't get her tickets, but I told them she couldn't go, so it all worked out really well."
The stylist, who is good friends with the actress, said she could not wait to see what the the biggest names had to offer.
"I have to see how many tickets I get, but I'm hoping to go to as many shows as I can," she added.

"Things are going really well and business is ticking over," she said.
