Jenny and friends strut their stuff for charity

She managed to persuade many of her gorgeous pals to strip down to their smalls for a Victoria Secrets-inspired catwalk show featuring some leading clothing labels as well as lingerie and swimwear.

Belting out the tunes in the northside venue were rising bands including Diablo, Von Shakes and the Red Labels as guests bopped the night away in a bid to raise funds for Keith Duffy's Irish Autism Action as well as the Haiti earthquake victims.

The fashion show, which was styled by Roxanne Parker, featured designs from River Island, AWear, Savida and Debenhams and among those who took to the catwalk were Georgia Salpa, Aoife Cogan and Ruth Griffin.

"I went on a trek to Peru last year to raise funds for Autism Action so this was my fundraiser for that," Jenny told the Diary. "I decided to wait until January to have it because it's always kind of quiet around this time of year. Wrights basically sponsored me for the night," she explained.

"It's been tough at times to organise with people pulling out and stuff but the main thing is that everyone gave a dig out and if it's a success we might do it on a yearly basis." And the ambitious beauty added that she would be turning her hand to other things in 2010 as she branches out from just modelling. "You're never guaranteed work in the modelling industry because it's not that kind of job. You have to pursue other avenues as well.

"I've also been busy shooting a few different short films. One is going to be screening at the Filmbase on February 4 at 6.30pm and I've a few other projects lined up."
