Claudine Keane adds modern twist to black tie dressing with structure white gown - and thigh high slit
Claudine Keane knows how to work a red carpet.
The former model (34) stole the show at Saturday night's CARI Red Ball, in order to support old friends Miriam Ahern and her daughters Cecelia and Georgina. Claudine has been a staunch support of the children's support charity, of which Miriam has long been a patron.
The mother-of-two turned heads in a backless white gown with thigh high zip detail and by Vatanika and in keeping with her big budget taste, the dress retailed for €813.99 from Revolve - not to mention the gold caged heels by Christian Louboutin. She was joined her by her mother Joan Palmer, who was dressed to impress in an off the shoulder metallic embellished bodycon gown.
Since moving home to Dublin from Beverly Hills in 2016 with husband Robbie Keane, she has largely kept her base in Malahide, where she spends the bulk of her time with her children Robert Jr (eight) and Hudson (two). It mightn't be for long though as Keane, who recently retired from international football, is being tipped for a management role in the Indian Super League (ISL).
Saturday night's inaugural ball attracted a host of wealthy supporters to a worthwhile cause, including celebrity solicitor Gerald Kean and his girlfriend of nearly one year, Sonya Valadi, who looked happier than ever as they posed for photographers on the red carpet. He donated a number of valuable items for auction, while TV3 star Alan Hughes hosted the festivities.
Georgina Ahern-Byrne was joined by her husband Nicky Byrne and Miriam Ahern was joined by her partner Terry McCoy.
