Stylewatch: Rising star

Holly Carpenter: the future Miss Ireland. And the closest thing we’re going to get to our very own Kate Middleton. Girl-next-door squeaky-clean attractiveness? Check.

Luxuriant brown locks that induce instant hair envy? Check. Holly Carpenter, the latest beauty to emerge from the Keane dynasty, was recently crowned Miss University 2011, after making her modelling debut at Fiona Foy-Holland’s recent annual fashion lunch in aid of the Order of St Lazarus. Unsurprisingly, Holly was instantly snapped up by Compton Model Agency. The stunning 19-year-old granddaughter of journalist legend Terry Keane will compete in Miss Ireland this August. With a beauty that is less photocall and more old-school Hollywood meets English rose, we predict big things for this teen.
