ACTRESS Amy Huberman went vintage for her latest trip down the red carpet.

The wife of Ireland and Leinster rugby star Brian O’Driscoll attended a film festival in Kilkenny with Love/Hate star Robbie Sheehan. And her usual wit was on show as she joked that her leather outfit was missing a whip.

“Loving this reworked vintage leather dress,” she said, adding: “I think I need a whip and I'm good to go.”

The button down black vintage leather dress from Folkster was complemented by an embellished black cardigan. Her glossy locks were styled in a straight bob, and the outfit was completed with a pair of simple black heels.

Huberman and Sheehan, who sported a longer than usual hairdo, were at the Subtitle Film Festival in Kilkenny.

Audiences are used to seeing Sheehan with a tighter haircut, but he has recently let his hair grow out into natural curls.

The pair took part in the Angela European Film Awards which celebrate excellence in European film-making.

Actors honoured at the awards included Norwegian Aksel Hennie (known for his role in the crossover hit Jo Nesbo’s Headhunters); Finnish star Peter Franzen (who will shortly be seen on screens starring alongside Sean Penn in The Gunman); Russian thespian Danila Kozlovsky (star of the forthcoming Vampire Academy alongside Gabriel Byrne) and Danish personality Pilou Asbaek (a leading character in TV hit Borgen).

The awards were hosted by actress and author Pauline McLynn in The Set Theatre, Kilkenny, with a host of household names attending, including director Jim Sheridan, Laurence Kinlan, Sean McGinley, Tom Hickey, writer David Caffrey and Harry Potter producer Tanya Seghatchian.

Sheridan also presented Emmy Award-winning casting director Avy Kaufman with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Kaufman was the casting diector for films as diverse as The Sixth Sense, The Life of Pi, Lincoln and Shame.

She has also worked with Jim Sheridan casting many of his films.

Over the course of the seven-day festival, there were 70 screenings of 36 films from 13 European countries, which included Norway and Bosnia.
