Ulster model Jamie Dornan was today named as one of the hottest male talents out there - by revered style bible Vogue.

The handsome Belfast singer/actor is one to keep an eye on for 2007, according to the Vogue Motorola list of predictions, published today in the magazine's December issue.

The vote of confidence from the movers and shakers of the fashion world will give a welcome boost to Jamie's aspirations to make a big break into acting.

The 24-year-old, who also plays in the band Sons of Jim, is currently starring in the new movie Marie Antoinette, opposite Kirsten Dunst.

The Calvin Klein model has been linked to a number of famous women, including Kate Moss and Sienna Millar, since breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, actress Keira Knightley.

Elsewhere in the Vogue list, The Devil Wears Prada actress Emily Blunt was identified as the actress to watch in 2007.

Jamie and Emily join kebabs, diamante and jelly shoes on the list of things which are "now the height of cool" according to Vogue.

The magazine says package holidays, fluffy slippers and even the humble hamburger have been given a designer makeover.

"Cheap and cheerful favourites are going up in the world. The buzzphrase is 'upmarket-downmarket'," the list explains.

Louis Vuitton has created jelly shoes for £160 per pair as "the naff seaside staple hits new fashion heights".

Diamante will be big at Giorgio Armani next season, meaning that "the cheap and cheerful substitute for diamonds cuts it once again".

And iPod cases, formerly a "naff teenage favourite", have been given the designer treatment by Italian fashion house Miu Miu.

As for package holidays, they are now deemed cool because Club Med has opened a luxurious resort in Phuket, Thailand.

In order to pass muster with the fashionistas, kebabs should preferably be salmon shish; hamburgers can be chic if made from ultra-pricey Wagyu beef; and fluffy slippers are acceptable if they are sheepskin.

And the seaside town of Littlehampton in Sussex is identified as Britain's coolest coastal resort.
