'No..we didn't get a photo!!!'





On Friday night I was truly honoured to possess my first official press invitation to meet the idyllic Whitney Port.
Yes...yes...she truly is as beautiful, if not more beautiful as she appears on TV - sickener, I know.
How and ever, being an avid follow (ahem...stalker) of Whitney, I HAD to be there!
One road trip to Kildare Village with my best friend Aoife, and there we were in the company of Whit.
Launching the Summertime Festival @ Kildare Village and her canvas tote bag in aid of Barretstown children's charity, Whitney turned out in a simple black maxi dress with a halter neck strap, black wedge ankle boots, a cream tweed effect jacket with black trimmings from her own Whitney Eve line, and her arms were adorned with oversized cuffs embellished with muted jewels and stones.
She perfectly captured the right balance between festival fashion and classic style.
She looked every inch the hot babe, that much cannot be denied.

Whitney addressed avid fans, signed her exclusive tribal print tote, and posed for paps.
Raging I didn't queue with those said fans...at least they got a picture with her.

Back in the hospitality lounge we stood chatting, mingling, eating posh fancy finger foods and waiting for Whitney to return so that we could pounce on her for photos and autographs.
It was not meant to be.
Tired and tormented at the prospect of getting to stand beside her, we retired to the couch to come up with a Plan B.

Low and behold, we were not the only ones.
Stellar's own Dillon gasped how he felt like a prostitute in the hope of securing just one quick signature - I giggled.
So true! Once chatting to him, I didn't feel so bad, we were all in the same boat.
He did however brighten up our night saying that at least the pair of us looked as if we could be a part of Whitney's world - delighted with life!

The chats were had, the laughs in abundance, and 'hugsies' galore!
I even learned how Whitney received a proposal from Dillon's mate as she forced her copper ring on the star's wedding finger - priceless!

We may not have gotten a pap with the star of the moment but we were buzzing on our journey home!
