Beauty Talks :: Miss Universe Ireland 2012 Adrienne Murphy
Miss Ireland Adrienne Murphy in on a quest to bring back the momentum brought about by Rozanna Purcell in 2010. This Celtic beauty who works at a model has fierce eyes and a body structure that is so statuesque. Watch out for this girl as she might be able to pull a surprise at Miss Universe 2012.
1. Who do you think is the sexiest man alive?
Of course there are obviously actors who are extremely good looking, the likes of Channing Tatum, brad Pitt etc but I think personality has a huge part to play and we don’t see actor’s true personalities then it’s hard to judge. My boyfriend of 6 years in my eyes is the sexiest man alive…he has all the qualities that I love!
2. If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do?
I think I would want to do anything that gave me an adrenaline rush, something like a sky dive or bungee jump.
Although I am used to modeling I think in some ways pageants are very different. While modeling is about the clothes, pageants focus on the person. Even though I am confident when doing the likes of fashion shows, shoots etc, for miss universe I have tried to prepare myself mentally and grow my confidence as this show is on a much bigger scale than anything I have done before.
4. What has been the biggest disappointment in your life? Why?
I am very lucky to date I haven’t had any major disappointments, I work hard and any small setbacks only make me work harder. I am very lucky to have a caring family who have guided me through life and have helped me to make wise decisions.
5. If you were given 1 million dollars how would you spend it in just one day?
I would take care of my family, I would buy my mum her dream villa in Spain, a golfing trip for my dad, for my brother a car and of course it goes without saying I would go on a major shopping spree.
Having someone that is always there for you is a special thing, they never change their opinion of you no matters what others say because they know the real you. Loving a boyfriend means that I will goes above and beyond and offers help in any way I can. You each provide a feeling of safeness and love that cannot be found with anyone else. In just one look shared between a boyfriend and a girlfriend a message can be given and understood by each other…This is what loving my boyfriend means to me.
7. Any beauty secrets that you would like to share the readers of Missosology?
It’s not a secret but if I have an important day ahead of me or a modeling job I always make sure to get more than 8 hours sleep. I think it makes such a difference, a good sleep always leaves you looking fresh! Also I believe less is more and it’s important to only enhance your natural beauty not try and disguise it. I think a good cleanser, toner and moisturiser is a necessity.
Ireland is a beautiful country with lush green wilderness dotted with beautiful town that have lovely people and an atmosphere to match. But being a Dublin girl, there’s no place like home, I love strolling around the beautiful parks Stephens green or the phoenix park. At the moment the Christmas lights are up in Dublin and there’s nothing nicer then walking down Grafton Street.
9. Tell us about your mantra or secret to success.
I always set goals for myself whether it’s to do with college or work, I will keep working until each goal is achieved.
When I graduated from college, the hard work was over and I hadn’t seen my good friend in a long time as everybody had gone their separate ways travelling or moving on with careers. (Happy tears )
11. What do you like to do for fun with your friends?
I am quite an active person and usually have a very busy week running around doing various modeling jobs and going to the gym. We all live different and busy lives so when it comes time that I get to see my friends the best thing to do is have big catch to fill each other in on what we’ve been up to. We love to take trips traveling abroad or even just in our own country getting to see new and exciting places. Of course we love to do the regular things like night out at the cinema, girl’s night out etc.
Transgender women have done everything to become the women they know and feel they are inside, they feel like a woman and act like a woman. They want to be recognized as women. So by excluding them from a pageant it is highlighting that they are not really a woman which would be unfair. I am all for it.
13. What would you say to someone who thinks you’re not qualified or pretty enough to represent your country in Miss Universe?
Judgment will always be paced and everybody will have a different opinion on what is beautiful or attractive to them. What is beautiful to one person maybe different to the next. I have worked hard to get to where I am today and I know that I am a strong person with a good personality so I feel that I will represent Ireland well.
14. What qualities do you feel you have that would make you a great Miss Universe?
I am extremely motivated and hard working. I persevere in life until I have achieved what I have set out to achieve. I pride myself on being a well rounded person with good morals and a grounded personality. I think positively and always try to see the good in situations.
15. Please send your special message to all your Missosology fans.
This whole experience is something completely new to me…It may be a little bit out of my comfort zone but I am ready to dive in and make to most of this adventure. I look forward to meeting all of the beautiful contestants and hopefully making good friends along the way.
