Tia Maria Hi Style Awards 2013
Glamour, Glitz and giggles. The Tia Maria Hi Style Awards presented by Hi Magazine in The Silver Springs Hotel Cork, was the event of the season. The pink carpet was awash with celebrities and fashionistas, from all over Munster. Style Awards categories covered everyone from the most stylish man, most stylish hair and beauty salons, men’s fashions and ladies boutiques. Even a few honorary style awards were handed out to men and women who deserved a special mention for their achievements.
Kerry Nominees for Style Awards
It was a pleasure to see many deserving local Kerry businesses get the nod.People I’ve worked with for the last year and a half – Orla Diffily from Upfront Model Management, Danny Leane of Annburys, Tralee, Clodagh Irwin Owens Designer, Seán Taffe Hair Salon, Jill Hannon of Hannons Fashions Castleisland.
The night began with a “pink” carpet entrance into a drinks reception.There the Tia Maria flowed. Gerald Keane and his girlfriend Lisa Murphy cut a fine sight, Gerald in one of 2 outfits he donned on the night. Amanda Brunker wore the most dramatic gown of the night, which wouldn’t allow her to sit, so she said herself. She was pretty chipper considering she had to stand until 11.30pm! Get the Sunday World next weekend to see exclusive photos from the night and her diary of her experience.
It was a Kerry reunion for many businessmen and women who shared a drink and a laugh in anticipation of the style awards being doled out. Danny and Anne Leane, Orla Winters, Jill Hannon all shared a photo or two. John Wall and his extended family were in riotous form, all looking fantastic in their gowns and suits. They set the bar high with the glamour and they didn’t disappoint. I overheard many people talking about Rebekah Wall’s hair creation during the course of the night! All entertainment was live on the night and people danced from an early hour. Celia Holman Lee sashayed into the drinks reception with Karen Kennelly and was gracious in allowing people to take their photo with her. Margaret Brick from Hi Magazine was there to oversee the event and did a tremendous job.
