Former Miss Ireland Emma Waldron seems to be having the time of her life in New York and now her face has been painted on a wall in the Big Apple.

The 25-year-old took to her Instagram account to share the snap of the wall which is in the trendy Williamsburg area of Brooklyn.

"I love the randomness of life - today I had the honour of being painted on a wall in New York City by the talented Robert Vargas," she wrote.

"I have loved street art for so long and combined my love for street style and street art in my blog which I have completely neglected since moving away."

"I definitely need to get back on that. But it's an incredibly wonderful experience I will cherish forever. The finished piece is on Berry and N12 in Brooklyn," she added.

She has certainly been making a name for herself as she has modelled during New York Fashion Week as well as at CurveExpo - a major lingerie designer showcase for buyers.

New fashion junkies

After months of preparations, 80 secondary school students sported their stunning couture designs fashioned from junk at the 3Arena on Friday night.

They all strutted the catwalk in their carefully choreographed routine in the hope of impressing the judges in front of thousands of fans at Ireland's biggest arena. Model and TV presenter Vogue Williams took pride of place beside stylist and TV presenter Rob Condon, art and design educator Tracey Fahey and Repak Marketing and Communications Manager Laura Murphy were joined by none other than former X Factor judge Louis Walsh.

In the end, the big winner was Le Paon Majestueux modelled by Sarah Cox. The outfit made from chicken wire, old magazines, aluminium and peacock feathers was an entry by Elphin Community College, who won a cash prize of €2,500 for their school along with iPad Minis and a further cash prize of €500 for the winning team.

More dates for The Field
