Reality TV star Billie Faiers is featured on the cover of the latest edition of OK! wearing a stunning evening dress created for her by Dundalk fashion designer Eamonn McGill.

Eamonn shared the news that his creation had made the cover of the celebrity magazine on his instagram account, saying he had been 'keeping this secret for a while but wasn't expecting it to be on the cover of Ok mag.'

Describing The Mummy Diaries and The Only Way Is Essex star Billie as 'stunning and super sweet', he revealed he had designed the customer made dress for her when she celebrated her 30th birthday with a Gatsby themed party.

The magazine enthused: 'Mother-of-two Billie looked incredible for her big night, wowing in a bespoke gown by Eamonn McGill, who has dressed Maura Higgins in the past, and flew over from Ireland to help her look her very best. The slinky gold dress was show-stopping and put her incredible figure on display, while she accessorised with a matching 1920s style headpiece while her blonde hair was styled in an up-do typical of era.'

Billie finished off her look with matching gold gloves and a furry white stole slung over her arms.

Eamonn, who is a graduate of thhe National College of Art and Design, has his design studio in Dublin and is known for his bespoke creations.

His spectacular dresses are much in demand by celebrities on both sides of the Irish sea. Love Island stars Maura Higgins, Molly-Mae Hague and Georgia Steel, model Holly Carpenter, and presenter Doireann Garrihy,are among those who have been spotted wearing his creations on the red carpets in recent months. He also dressed Ireland's entry in last year's Eurovision Song Contest, Sarah McTernan for her appearance in Tel Aviv.

Eamonn was named as Fashion Designer of the Year at the Hi Style Awards at the end of last year.

For the past two years, he has been involved in designing Brown and Thomas' iconic Christmas windows. The Christmas 2019 design was inspired by the glamour of the 1930s and the Orient Express and Eamonn was thrilled to be able to feature dresses and coats worn by Hollywood star Maureen O'Hara in the windows.
