Pippa's NY trip to shops
Bride-to-be Pippa O'Connor is jetting off to New York to do some last-minute shopping ahead of her nuptials in June.
The catwalk queen explained how she was being spoiled by her fiance Brian Ormond, who surprised her with the trip as part of her Christmas present.
The former You're A Star host won't be joining his wife-to-be however, with lucky Pippa set to enjoy a few days relaxing in the Big Apple with several girlfriends.
And while the leggy model, who jumped ship to Andrea Roche's agency last year, admits she would love to go abroad for her hen party, she is adamant her girly trip later this month won't be doubling as her last hurrah.
"I'm very lucky," she said. "We're planning to do some shopping and just relax."
The busy showbiz couple will also among the guests at model Avril Kelly's wedding to former pop star Stephen Carter on February 12 at the Kilashee House Hotel in Naas.
