What amounts to Ireland’s hair and beauty Oscars took place last Sunday as the highly anticipated Image Business of Beauty Awards commenced at Dublin’s Double Tree by Hilton Hotel. There were a number of representatives from the Mid-West who shone bright at the awards ceremony.

On arrival we were all welcomed with cocktails created by Diageo’s award winning team of mixologists. During the ceremony Image magazine editor Rosaleen McMeel and myself helped select the most stylish person on the night and for me the winner was most definitely Siobhan Macken from Preen salon. She wore a beautiful cream sequinned top and a black full taffeta skirt which looked beautiful on the night. Melanie Morris and broadcaster Darren Kennedy presented the awards in a number of categories. It was surly a wonderful evening for the 500 key industry professionals who attended.

On another note I will be joining Brendan O’Connor on The Saturday Night Show this week. Brendan will be quizzing me over my latest exhibition “Celia Holman Lee - Style Icon” at the Hunt Museum.

I want to thank everyone for the ongoing support for my exhibition. It is this support that has a national TV station and some of the country’s top magazines covering the exhibition in the next few weeks. I never thought people would be as interested as they are and I’m humbled by the success of it all. I’m truly proud as are all the designers who’s beautiful designs are on display at the exhibition which will running until 
May 3.

Chat to you all soon!
