Along with pretty much everyone else in the country, we were oh-so in awe when the world's leading supermodel (don't let Gisele tell you different) landed in Dublin last week.

Yup, Ms Naomi Campbell is now the brand-new face of Newbridge Silver – and she's going to be hanging 'round these parts a lot more too: the 45-year-old Londoner has a signed a two-year deal to front the brand.

This morning, a gorgeous behind-the-scenes video was also released by the Irish accessories giant… and suffice-to-say it has us on a major fashion high.

In the minute-long clip, Ms Campbell can be seen donning a load of fabulous Newbridge pieces – not to mention an oh-so-cool hard metal bodysuit (only Naomi could pull it off, frankly).

The resulting snaps – which will be used as part of the brand's forthcoming Little Blue Box campaign – haven't been released just yet, but if the sneak-peak, on-location footage is anything to go by, we're already VERY excited to get a glimpse of them. 

Meanwhile, Naomi this week caused a social-media storm when she shared a topless snap on Instagram – a platform on which she boasts some 2million followers – as well as on Twitter.

The model, who has been in Manhattan working during New York Fashion Week, was getting behind the gender equality #freethenipple campaign – and her photo lasted an impressive 22hours before being removed by Instagram officials.

Thankfully, however, the image remains on her Twitter account.  



She was unveiled this afternoon as the new face of Newbridge Silver

And now official snaps of Naomi Campbell taken in the Merrion hotel in Dublin's city centre have been unveiled – and let's just say that they're totally gorgeous!

For the event, the 45-year-old supermodel had worn a €4,250 black, wrap-effect leather dress by Alexander McQueen, teaming the number with purple suede shoes and – of course – Newbridge accessories. 

Over the next two years, Ms Campbell will front campaigns for the Irish jewellery company, kicking off with the Little Blue Box drive.

She'll also be launching an as-yet still under wraps project next month. And in a personal capacity the Londoner she's looking forward to visiting the famed Newbridge Silverware Museum Of Style Icons.










Rozanna Purcell’s new video campaign for Newbridge Silverware has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASA) who said the video was "exploitative of sexuality".

The video, which was aimed to attract a younger generation to the Irish brand, was styled by Irish stylist, Courtney Smith.

Courtney took to her Instagram page to voice her disgust at the decision to ban the advert: “I’m shocked that at this day in age Ireland can still be so backwards. This incredible shoot I did for a new younger Newbridge collection called EShe was in the press today after being complained about to the ASA for being too overtly sexy! The shoot was actually inspired by Cuban dancers from the 1930s and 40s… It is meant to be sensual and evocative. The jewellery is still the main focus and I think it’s incredibly beautiful and can’t imagine how it would make people feel uncomfortable.”

Well it’s certainly not Amy Huberman setting a table but we think it looks gorgeous; Rozanna is stunning as always and we NEED that necklace!
