A full 8,500km away from her native city, Kerrie McMahon has found herself hoisted up into the warm Californian air to a height of some 6metres.

Gracing one of Sunset Boulevard’s famed billboards, the gorgeous UCD-graduate can be seen in a dark bikini advertising 138 Water – the celebrity-friendly bottled water which often hydrates the likes of Rob Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, Lana Del Ray, and Blac Chyna.

An Irish model with BIG dreams of making it Stateside, she’s been busy building her career on home-soil while also steadily boosting her profile in the notoriously competitive Los Angeles entertainment industry.

And there’s no doubt that hard work pays off: Kerrie is now on the verge of becoming one of the most recognisable Irish names in the US.

“To see myself on a billboard is completely surreal!” the 27-year-old exclusively admitted to SHEmazing today.

“Being honest, just being on the Sunset Boulevard Strip is so exciting in itself – never mind having countless numbers of people seeing me in a major advertising campaign.

“It's funny being a million miles away back home in Ireland and my American friends sending me pictures of it as they drive past. They tell me they say ‘hey, I know her!’ when they spot my 138 photo, which always makes me smile.”

Kerrie shot the campaign recently at an undisclosed Hollywood mansion worth millions.

“There are a lot of mega-famous people in that part of the world,” she said coyly when asked about who owned the property – although she did tell us that hanging out with big names and celebrities is part-and-parcel of the social scene in LA.

It was last year when Kerrie had her first taste of high-profile stardom, securing her first 138 Water billboard advert – and to be asked back for another shoot this summer is a testament to how successful her debut was.

Next up for the Dundrum-native is an appearance on the famed pages of men’s magazine Maxim.

“I’ll be in the September edition,” she explained. “We shot in Las Vegas earlier this year. It was incredible – up in a seriously plush penthouse over-looking the city with a crew of photographers, hair and make-up people, technicians and stylists.”

Kerrie hopes to spend more time in the US over the next few months in order to capitalise on her recent successes.

The one thing she won’t be changing anytime even if she does make the move permanently to the US?

“My accent is definitely very much Irish!” she laughed. “A load people over there seem to initially think I’m Russian – until I open my mouth that is!

“I certainly haven’t lost a bit of my Irish accent – and I doubt at this stage I ever will.”




Ireland’s only Victoria Secret Angel Stella Maxwell has officially been named Maxim magazine’s hottest woman for 2016.

The 25-year-old – whose parents are from Northern Ireland – took to Instagram yesterday to share a photo of the winning cover shoot with her 1.7m followers and, judging by the pic, we don't think anyone will be left wondering why she's been crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman.

Stella’s interview with Maxim also reveals that as well as being blessed in the looks department, Stella – who has modelled for Moschino, Marc Jacobs and Kardashian favourite Balmain – also has a seriously positive outlook on life.

She told the lad’s mag: “I believe that thinking positively and envisioning the best possible outcome can add to your achievements.  It doesn’t always work out, but if I visualise myself getting what I want, it can happen.  Positivity helps with everything in life.”

The blonde – who previously dated Miley Cyrus – also revealed that she wasn’t always the beauty she is today.

She said: “I think those of us who have found success grew into ourselves in our 20s…I know I was not the hottest chick at school!  We peaked a little later than the other girls.”

Sounds like there’s hope for us all.


When Kirsten Dunst was a teenager, her role in Bring It On pretty much made her a household name.

In fact, some people still recognise her more for that role then many of her more recent projects. Which we can’t exactly blame them for, because there were some fantastic lines in that epic cheerleading tale.

Like many other actresses enjoying their time in the spotlight, Kirsten was asked to be on the cover of a popular magazine. Remember when 18-year-old Kirsten Dunst appeared in Maxim magazine topless bar a denim jacket?

Well she certainly does, and apparently not with fond memories.

The Maxim cover

In an interview with Stylist, Kirsten said she felt forced to do the photo shoot with less clothes than she was ever comfortable wearing.

She then followed up by admitting that she was “bullied” into that particular cover shoot —in order to promote the release of Bring It On.

“I was too young, I didn’t like it,” she added, “Not good. But then I got a whole new team of people!”

That’s the kind of experience that gives us the super creepy feelings. 

Kirsten, who is doing press to promote her role in the series Fargo, said that at the time she didn’t feel confident enough or understand how to say “no” to the shoot.

On a lighter note, she revealed that she is still pretty close with her former co-star Tom Cruise:

"He sends me cake every Christmas. I call it the Cruise Cake," Dunst added. "It's so good—a coconut cake with white chocolate chips. It gets eaten within a day in my house.

When the Cruise Cake gets delivered, it's like, 'Cruise Cake's here!' My friends know what that means."


No he can officially add record breaker to his impressive CV, twice.

The 42-year old actor Idris Elba has become the first ever make to appear solo on the cover of Maxim magazine.

Speaking about the news, editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear said “we’ve never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo.”

Previously men have appeared but alongside women so Idris’ cover makes it a first in the magazine’s 20 year history. We’re pretty pleased about this too.

According to the magazine they couldn’t think of anyone else in the world “more badass” than Idris to take the spot.

Describing the actor, musician and race car driver as “complex” and “sophisticated”, editors said “he was really the perfect embodiment of what I think the new Maximman is.”

Underneath the headline ‘Man Up’ the popular TV star is sporting his trademark beard and cuts quite the stylish figure in a black and grey animal print jacket.

'The guy broke the [British] land speed record which hasn't been touched since like 1928. He's sort of a living, breathing superhero,' said the magazine.

In May The Wire actor drove across the Pendine Sands in Wales at 180.361 mph to break the world land speed record. In a Bentley Continental GT, as you do.

He tells the magazine: “I just like the velocity, and I guess I’m slightly addicted to the risk of it.”

While there were plenty of rumours that got everyone's hopes up that he would take on the role spy James Bond, he admitted he doesn't think that will happen. He will however be on our screens in Star Trek Beyond
