Fizz is opened for Fitz as stylist launches diet book
Thursday 12 June 2014
They say that politics is show business for ugly people. But X Factor judge Louis Walsh has a plan to change all that.
“Lisa Fitz for Leinster house!” the X Factor judge exclaimed at the launch of stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick’s book Diet SOS. “It has a ring to it, don’t you think?
“She should run in the next general election,” he continued. “She’s not afraid to say what she thinks, she gets things done and has fantastic hair. What more do you want?”
Walsh was just one of the guests to attend the bash held in the super-swanky Morgan Hotel in Temple Bar.
He arrived fashionably late with his latest protégés, Hometown, in tow and was all talk about their contract with Sony.
“I’m going for the hat-trick and the Christmas number one with these ones. Watch this space,” he said before rolling his eyes when a passerby mentioned the next season of the X Factor, and Cheryl Cole.
The bar was teaming with faces including TV starlets Jenny Buckley and Karen Koster and the ‘King of Cloth’ Louis Copeland – all of who tucked into sashimi and sushi rolls, while downing top-notch fizz out of old-fashioned champagne glasses.
Model boss Andrea Roche was enjoying her first night out since the birth of her daughter Sophie and chatted to model Rosanna Davison about her big day in Ibiza.
“I’m carrying the wedding dress over like a baby,” Davison said. “I wouldn’t dare check it in – can you imagine if it went missing?”
Morah Ryan arrived with her daughter Lottie, and chatted about her son Rex’s upcoming theatre show in the Dublin Fringe Festival.
“It’s a retelling of Ulysses through the eyes of someone on an acid trip,” she explained.
Weather wonder woman Audrey McGrath arrived looking bronzed having returned from Tuscany with her fiancé Kevin O’Connor.
“The food was divine, and don’t even get me started on the wine,” she said.
Celebrity agent Noel Kelly, Sinéad Desmond and photographer Barry McCaul all cheered when Lisa took to the stage to thank those nearest and dearest.
After all the ‘totes emosh’ speeches, Hometown broke into an acapella version of ‘Wanted’ by Hunter Hayes.
