Michele McGrath


It's Ireland; it's July; you've managed to get tickets to one of the capital's most in-demand music gigs – oh, and you'll be catching some horse-racing beforehand.

Suffice to say that's an itinerary that would make many of us break out in a cold sweat of pure wardrobe fear.

What. To. Wear.

Still, we can certainly take inspiration from Michele McGrath – who was this week at Leopardstown for the Bulmers Live event. 

Catching Jack L on stage, the model was on hand to judge the Dare To Be Different style event: you get dressed up, head along to the south Dublin racecourse and enjoy the on-course action followed by a festival-style music gig.

Up next on Thursday July 14 is Hermitage Green, followed by Booka Brass Band [July 21], The Strypes [August 4], and The Boomtown Rats [August 11].

And Dare To Be Different, sponsored by the Beacon Hotel, will run for the entire Bulmers Live schedule.

There are fabulouso prizes up for grabs on each evening too: penthouse overnight stays, dinner parties and cocktail making classes (major swoons all round, so). 

As well as emulating Michele's look, the rest of the celebrity judges (Lisa Fitzpatrick, Alan Hughes, Lorraine Keane, Triona McCarthy, and Holly White) say they are looking for contestants "to showcase their alternative concepts with a unique statement in style.

"We are not looking for classic race day fashion but alternative concepts outside those that are traditionally associated with best dressed race day fashion. We want you to showcase your individual, unique, innovative style and dare to be different!"

Long known for her Rapunzel-like blonde tresses, Rosanna Davison took everyone by surprise three weeks ago when unveiled her brand new look: significantly shorter hair sliced up to her shoulders.

"Chop chop!! Thanks to @ceiralambert for the new hairdo," she told her 107,000 Instagram fans late last month while also sharing a snap of her gorgeous gruaige. 

"Still have my @goldfeverhair in for volume but nice to have a change."

Suffice to say that here at SHEmazing Towers, we are BIG fans of the former Miss World's revised hair-do. In fact, we dare say she's never looked better.

We're not the only ones either, for it now transpires that a host of big names are eagerly following in nutritionist Rosie's stylish footsteps. 

First out of the traps was model Holly Carpenter. "Bit of a change for the weekend," she revealed less than a week after Ms Davison took the plunge.

"Got my @goldfeverhair out and a bit of a chop (my own hair has grown so much while my last set were in)."

Then late last week, Irish hairdresser to the stars, Maurice Flynn, shared a snap of Georgia Penna on his Instagram page.


Gave @georgiapenna a good chop. I love this length on her! What a babe

The model and recent mother-of-two looked seriously amazing with her formerly long locks cut up to just below her shoulders. "I love this length on her," Mr Flynn declared. "What a babe."

Meanwhile, over the weekend Michele McGrath, also a model, showed off her short and sexy style. "Thanks for my new bob @ceiralambert," she declared. "Love it." 

It remains to be seen who the next starlet to embrace a shorter style will be – though we reckon that one-time Miss Universe Ireland Roz Purcell would look all sorts of fabulous with a bob.

And regardless of who goes for the chop next – it's definitely official: the 'Rosanna' is the hottest hair trend going right now.
