NEW GEAR’S DAY!

We're sure The Edge will look suitably gorgeous...

THE EDGE, former BOYZONE member KEITH DUFFY and footballer RIO FERDINAND are to take to the catwalk for a star-studded charity fashion show in DUBLIN.

The Brown Thomas International Fashion Show, at Dublin Point later this month (January 23), aims to raise €700,000 (£460,000) for three children’s charities – Chernobyl Children’s Project, ISPCC and The Christina Noble Foundation.

Alongside a host of supermodels, including Giselle, Naomi Campbell, Yasmin Le Bon and Helena Christensen, will be celebrity models and special guest presenters. As well as The Edge and Keith Duffy modelling clothes, other stars taking part include Andrea Corr, Westlife‘s Nicky Byrne, Davina McCall, actors Gabriel Byrne and Stuart Townsend and Formula 1 driver Eddie Irvine.

Labels being modelled include Gucci, YSL, Prada and Versace.

Samantha Mumba and [a][/a] will provide musical entertainment at the Cat Deeley-hosted event.
