Following a romantic proposal last week, Bonnie Ryan has been celebrating her recent engagement in style.
The stunning makeup artist, who is the daughter of late broadcaster Gerry Ryan, said yes to long-term love John when he popped the question during a recent trip to New York.
Back home in Ireland, Bonnie was joined by her closest friends and family, as they marked the joyous occasion with a lavish get-together.
The bride-to-be turned up the glam, wearing a fabulous gold sequin dress from Zara.
Here’s how you can get her look for yourself, plus five alternatives to suit every budget and preferred style.
Bonnie’s mini-dress features a zip-up closure, all-over sequin design and puff-sleeve detail.
This gúna would be perfect for the upcoming festive period, so if you’re looking for a glam Christmas party look, this is it!
River Island, €55
Bonnie paired her dress with an on-trend scuba court shoe in neutral beige.
This classic heel is a great investment piece that can be worn with almost any outfit, a win for your bank account and your wardrobe!
