“She is a striking beauty, has killer style and uses this all to promote her positive outlook,” the website writes.

The curvaceous beauty tells the outlet how she got her first start in the modelling industry - she was approached by an international agency aged sixteen but told she would have to lose weight - as well as her style, influences and how Dublin is coming on leaps and bounds as a fashion capital.

“I do find the fashion culture in London has a greater sense of individualism that you wouldn’t see that often in Dublin... Londoners are so carefree and very expressive of their own unique style. Dublin is slowly getting there too; in particular we have an incredible amount of talented fashion designers who are making their mark on the fashion industry around the world. We have phenomenal talent in Ireland and more designers are appearing every day,” she says.

The model, who is signed to top agencies around the globe, is also an award-winning blogger. She offers her worldly advice on finding and nailing your own signature style:

“Spend time looking at what styles work best for you and your body type. There is a myth that buying items a size bigger will look more flattering, which is untrue for any size. If street style inspiration is your issue, research fashion blogs that you feel you can identify with, who’s style you admire.”
