Newbridge Museum of Style Icons
Yesterday myself, Enid & Lydia went out to Newbridge to see the Museum of Style Icons. It was very enjoyable but one (small) critcism is it is more of an exhibition than a museum. Or definitely it is a "small" museum.
They have tonnes of costumes and artefacts from the likes of Angelina Joli, Grace Kelly, Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, The Beatles, The rat pack, The Jackson Five, Michael Flatley, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Streisand and many more!
There is also many many black and white photographs of style icons throughout the years.
As I said, enjoyable...and FREE which is great.
There is also a large store and showroom of all the beautiful Irish Newbridge Silver. Lydia bought some gifts for her friends back in Oman.
I have a selection of photographs below - enjoy!
Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley
A Catherine Walker dress for Princess Diana
Beautiful dress designed by the famous Irish designer Sybil Connolly.
Silver corsetted mini dress/outfit worn by Yasmin Le Bon (the "face of Newbridge Silver in 2006 & 2007)
I remember this ad well!
To me, it represents and epitomises the strength of a woman.
Audrey Hepburn dresses. She was TINY!!!!
The white dress was worn for her daughters christening (I think it is Givenchy) it is the size of an eleven year old's dress in my opinion. Beautiful on her - see photo of her wearing in down at the bottom of the skirt on the left.
No blurb needed here for the King of Pop!
New (travelling) exhibition of props from the Lord of the Rings films.
