Silver lining for elegant Amy as the new face of Newbridge

SHE is a best-selling author, top TV and film actress, wife to a rugby legend and, this year, a new mum.

But there's no stopping Amy Huberman's CV, and today she became a top model.

The 33-year-old follows silver-screen icon Maureen O'Hara as the new face of Newbridge Silverware.

From July 1, the former Clinic actress will be bringing what the company describe as her "beauty and grace" to a major advertising campaign.

The company said it's a "match made in style heaven; the chic, accessible and effortlessly elegant actress is the perfect embodiment of the Newbridge Silverware collection".

They say that Amy will be involved in a "multi-dimensional campaign" which includes a commercial shot by renowned director Hugh O'Conor and press ads photographed by Barry McCall.

Speaking at a press launch at the Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge today, Amy said: "Newbridge Silverware defines elegance, affordable luxury and sophistication, and I am thrilled to be associated with such an iconic Irish brand.

"I have always been a fan of the Newbridge collection, particularly the collections inspired by the legendary stars such as Grace Kelly and Greta Garbo."
