Model student Faye takes break from books to star in Ralph Lauren adverts
TOP Irish model Faye Dinsmore took a break from the books to star in a new Ralph Lauren campaign.
The Donegal beauty who is currently studying at Trinity College in Dublin, landed the major modelling role in London.
The gorgeous redhead donned an aran-style sweater and tweed blazer in the ad to promote the American designer's range.
And now that Faye (23) is back hitting the books she's got her sights set on another challenge.
The model is set to trek to basecamp Everest this summer.
Faye will wait until she finishes her exams at Trinity College before heading off on the adventure.
The excited student told friends that she was hitting the trek right after her exams and is eager to entice others to join the charity trek.
"My sister is organising this trip to Everest Basecamp for May 2012, so just right after my exams. Anyone fancy coming?" she said.
Faye has had a busy year with her modelling career going from strength to strength. She finished the year jetting off to London to take part in the photoshoot for Ralph Lauren. But she is now planning on staying closer to home to finish her studies.
"I'm back in Trinity College Dublin after two years away. It's really exciting to be in lectures once again. I'll miss travelling as much, but if I'm to finish my degree then I have to go back this year. It's been a hard choice, and I'll miss everyone in IMG, but education has to come first," she said.
Now the model is also planning on giving something back with her greatest challenge to date. And the Donegal stunner is hoping to encourage some of her 255,582 facebook friends to join in.
Dinsmore, had split her time between Paris and New York after signing to the world's top model agency, IMG, which represents Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Heidi Klum.
The beauty, who's one of 14 children from a remote farm in Donegal, is one of the country's most successful models. She was originally spotted in 2008 outside Trinity College Dublin, where she studied French and Classics. The statuesque model insists she never considered modelling and now feels "very lucky" that she's making a name for herself in the cut-throat industry.
The trek will see Faye and her sister Beth join a group of volunteers in climbing to the Everest basecamp. The trek takes place for 17 days from May 5 to May 22 and will raise money for Suas, an educational development charity and will provide funds for education projects in India and Kenya.
Participants are expected to be in good physical health and able to walk up to several hours a day in hilly terrain with a light back pack. For more information on the trek go to www.suas.ie/everest.
