Kilmore woman Julie Caulfield pictured at the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles in a dress designed by herself.

Julie was a make-up artist on Detainment, the controversial film directed by Irish filmmaker Vincent Lambe which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Film (Live Action).

Julie, who is also a dress designer and has a shop in Kilmore Quay, travelled to Los Angeles with the director and other crew members for the glittering Oscars ceremony.

Detainment is based on transcripts from the police interrogation of John Venables and Robert Thompson, the 10-year old boys who abducted, tortured and murdered British toddler James Bulger in 1993.

The film lost out to Skin, a short film about racism in America which was directed by husband and wife team Guy Nattiv and Jaime Ray Newman.
