ROCKABILLY star Imelda May was on hand to give model mum-to-be Pippa O'Connor some tips about the joys of motherhood.

The two were high-profile guests at the annual UNICEF Ireland Mother's Day Lunch at The Four Seasons Hotel, Dublin yesterday.

Proud mum Imelda brought her baby daughter Violet, wrapped up warmly against the cold, to the fundraising lunch, the proceeds of which go to help mothers in disadvantaged parts of the world.

The 38-year-old chart-topper and her husband Darrel Higham became parents to little Violet last August.

And she was more than happy to chat about motherhood to model Pippa, who is expecting her first child with husband Brian Ormond in the coming weeks.

It was a busy day for Dubliner Imelda who also brought a splash of colour to proceedings when she went to Trinity College to pick up her latest award.

The singer was awarded a prestigious gold medal of honorary patronage by the Philosophical Society.

Wearing bright red shoes and a fitted dress, Imelda showed just why she has become such a style icon.

Imelda will be playing with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Wrecking Ball Weekender in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny in July.

The Liberties native has enjoyed worldwide success after a "seal of approval" appearance on Jools Holland's show in 2008 with hit track Johnny's Got A Boom Boom.

Last year, the Democratic leader of the United States house of representatives Nancy Pelosi was given the gold medal of honorary patronage by the Philosophical Society.
