The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) welcomed the cream of Ireland’s creative talent from the world of film and television as they gathered in Dublin at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel on Saturday night (February 20) to acknowledge and celebrate the Irish industry’s achievements both at home and abroad.

Amy Huberman’s outfit at the 2010 IFTAS

As you may know, we are BIG fans of Amy Huberman here at and so it’s only natural that we got the inside scoop on her outfit, thanks to her stylist Ingrid Hoey.

The emerald green silk dress is by London based designer Belle & Bunty which is for sale in Ireland exclusively at Beuys and Beuys 99B Rathgar. Her shoes, though not visible here, are from the fabulous Nando Muzzi at Cocobelle (Unit 25 Royal Hibernian Way, Dawson St, Dublin 2).

Amy’s crystal embellished clutch is by Irish designer Joanne Hynes (Brown Thomas, Grafton Street Dublin 2) and her Jewellery is by Rebecca Davis (Westbury Mall, Dublin 2).

Among the Irish creative talent walking the red carpet at IFTA 2010 include acting nominees Brendan Gleeson, Colin Farrell, Saoirse Ronan, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Aidan Quinn, Ciarán Hinds, Michael Fassbender, Elaine Cassidy, Amy Huberman, Charlene McKenna, Sarah Bolger, Darren Healy, Nora Jane Noone, Jade Yourell, Janice Byrne, Amy Kirwan, Simon Delaney, Dervla Kirwan, Ger Ryan, Ruth Bradley, Robert Sheehan, Diarmuid Noyes, Dawn Bradfield and Tatianna Ouliankina; directors Neil Jordan, Jim Sheridan, Conor McPherson, John Carney, Kieran Carney, Thaddeus O’Sullivan, Ciaran Donnelly, Declan Recks and Robert Quinn; in addition to a host of production talent including composer Neil Hannon and costume designers Joan Bergin, Consolata Boyle and Eimer Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh.
