A golden eye for fashion


THE SOCIAL NETWORK: Mrs Moneypenny flew her own plane into Weston Executive Airport on Thursday to give a talk at The Gloss magazine’s Look the Business networking dinner and fashion show at the Mansion House that evening. Not to be confused with the fictional James Bond character, Miss Moneypenny, this particular Moneypenny is the pseudonym used by the Financial Times columnist Heather McGregor.

Ann O’Leary, business and enterprise director at Vodafone Ireland, wore a Victoria Beckham dress, Charlotte Olympia shoes, a Hermès bangle and a YSL handbag. “I probably shouldn’t have them on – there’s a recession,” she said.

Carmel Breheny of Marks Spencer was chatting to Sarah Williams of Arnotts. “Henry Street is big enough for the both of us,” quipped Breheny.

William Fry solicitors was hosting some favoured clients including Joan McGrath of Davy Brokers; Lucy Doogan and Patricia Leonard of UPMC Beacon Hospital, and Dee Murphy of Communicorp.
