Liz was just great to work for, says model Roz

It's not every model that can pose next to the stunning Liz Hurley in a skimpy pink bikini and still look good.

But Dublin beauty Roz Lipsett (24) said she loved every minute of it -- and the Austin Powers star couldn't have been any nicer to her during the shoot at the Kildare Village outlet.

"She's absolutely gorgeous and looks just as good in real life as she does in pictures," she explained.

"We didn't mind at all that she wasn't in a bikini as well, even though she has an amazing figure. I've been modelling now for five years and you will never feel completely comfortable in some shoots but she really put us at our ease."

The Cindy Crawford lookalike was picked alongside Vogue Williams to model the swimwear collection for the star's first Irish 'beach hut'.

And she revealed how even though she's now studying law fulltime and has put her modelling career on the back burner, she made an exception to take part in Liz's shoot.

"If a quality job comes along for a great fashion brand like hers, I would have no hesitation in taking the job. So when my agency contacted me about it, I was all on for it as she's such an established name in fashion," she continued.

"Liz was lovely to us. She was really excited about spending the weekend in Ireland and she said she had loads of stuff planned for when she was here."

Roz has spent the past few years working as a model in New York and has taken part in high profile campaigns for fashion houses including Burberry and Versace.

The Miss Ireland finalist was snapped up by New York Models and has made some influential friends during her time in the States. As well as being invited to one of Hugh Hefner's infamous parties at his LA Playboy Mansion, she also went out to dinner with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and a group of pals.

However, she has put her glitzy lifestyle on the back burner to concentrate on her studies after enrolling in King's Inn in a bid to become a legal eagle.

"It's going great. I have almost finished my first year so I have two more years to go," she continued.
