Beauty teen Clara lands new high profile campaign

SHE'S a rising superstar and now teenage model Clara McSweeney has landed another high profile campaign.

The 16-year-old, who is a leggy 5ft 10 and is being hailed as a Kate Moss lookalike, has been unveiled as the new face of Newbridge Silverware.

Following in the footsteps of Threesome actress Amy Huberman, Clara has big shoes to fill but if her recent campaign shoot, styled by Courtney Smith and snapped by photographer Daniel Holfeld, are anything to go by, the Diary has no doubt she'll be an ambassador for a long time to come.

Cork native Clara has soared to success on the runway and in magazine pages, but she enjoyed her first taste of the business when her mother brought her along to a boot camp run by her now agent Andrea Roche, less than two years ago.

The Irish beauty has already proven herself as one of the country's most in demand catwalk queens, with Clara getting to strut her stuff at London Fashion Week last September for a number of couture houses.

The blue-eyed blonde posed in an array of prim and proper crochet numbers for Turkish designer Bora Aksu, as well as being booked by PPQ.
