Back to auditions for Roz after week of A-list parties

SHE'S winding down after one of the busiest weeks in Hollywood's social calendar, but model Roz Lipsett is straight back into work with a bang after all the commotion of the Academy Awards.

The brunette beauty got to attend a string of glamorous parties and star-studded red carpet events last week – including a bash to toast 12 Years A Slave star Lupita Nyong'o at the famous Chataeu Marmont.

Roz, who recently rubbed shoulders with the A-listers of Tinseltown at Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday party, was also hand-picked to model in a fashion show at an pre-Oscar party at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

AUDITIONS

But now Roz is cracking on with her usual working schedule of casting calls and photoshoots, as well as attending auditions.

After packing her bags and heading off to the US last year, the Rathgar native has built herself up a loyal client base in the fashion world overseas.

Following a successful decade or so as one of Ireland's best known models, Roz has plenty of experience behind her and is booking regular jobs through her agency, internationally renowned Wilhelmina Models.

"Workwise I'm very busy at the moment, which is great," she told the Diary. "At the moment I'm involved with a sports line for Wilhelmina and a new Spin Cycle that's just come to LA.

"Since I renewed my visa and contract with the agency, they have been keeping me on the go and I've been working with a lot of swimwear brands including Frankie's Bikinis, BBusy ROeach Riot, and Costello Gowns, which is amazing."

In between strutting her stuff on the catwalk, Roz is spreading her wings as an actress in LA.

"Acting is definitely my passion so I'm continuing with my studies at the improvisation theatre, the Groundlings," she said.

ACTRESS

"I'VE BEEN GOING ON A FEW GREAT AUDITIONS SO FINGERS CROSSED I CAN TURN MY PASSION INTO MY JOB AND BECOME A PROPER WORKING ACTRESS."

Roz is basing herself in Los Angeles until 2016 at least, with two years left on her current visa.

The Dubliner does miss home and is trying to make it back to Ireland as often as she can, to catch up with friends and family.

And she'll next be back on Irish shores in late April.

"I like to come home every couple of months as I get homesick," she said.

"When I lived in New York it was so much easier as there are direct flights and it's much quicker and less expensive. From LA to Dublin can be quite the trek."
