Amy Adams's beautiful shoot in an Georgian Dublin mansion

If you didn't catch the Amy Adams feature in Allure's August 2009 issue, I have some shots for you right here. Other than the couture gorgeousness she was wearing, it's impossible to ignore the Georgian mansion backdrop, which is in Dublin.

I tried to find more info/photos of the mansion for you, but all I could find was this - "In flipping through the pages of this month's Allure, I was intrigued to read that the cover story on Amy Adams was shot in a "bone-cold 289-year-old Georgian mansion in Dublin". This sounded very familiar, as we had been in just such a place back in March of 2002, while shooting our Autumn catalog.

We left Kansas on a warm spring day and traveled all the way to Ireland. We soon found that we had not packed adequate clothes for the cold and damp conditions. In an old Georgian mansion that had gone though periods of elegance and grandeur, and times as a bullet-ridden tenement, we were chilled to the bone, building fires of peat bricks in an attempt to keep warm. Our French model, dressed in a tweed wool turtleneck and leather skirt, looks quite cozy as she stands next to the fireplace. Note the woodwork on the mantel and the frame of the mirror - same as the mantel and woodwork next to Amy Adams in the September issue of Allure, even cozier next to a roaring fire.

My husband and I had our first visit to Ireland over our honeymoon. We found Dublin to be a delightful cold-cozy, you know the kind where history is heavy in the air but a fireplace is always near. It's the kind of cold I'd love to have a bit more in America,but we're a young country.

I also had the best massage in a tiny spa just around the corner from Trinity. ..
