Ireland’s most stylish celebrities showed up at the Platinum VIP Style Awards in Dublin tonight.
Ublin’s Marker Hotel transformed into a sea of starlets for the first Platinum VIP Style Awards in over two years as influencers and TV personalities showed off their best dresses and gúnas on the red carpet.
RTÉ’s Doireann Garrihy takes over as host of the event, now in its 19th year, and set high standards for attendees as she rocked a vibrant fuschia blazer dress with dramatic tulle wings by Irish designer Eamonn McGill.
And Doireann isn’t the only one gracing the red carpet in a pink outfit tonight – her sister Aoibhin opted for a similar shade as well as Miss Ireland 2021 Pamela Uba and Jess Redden, who matched her date, her ” amazing” mom Linda.
Some of the famous faces who made it to the most exciting event of the year include newlywed Bonnie Ryan – who had her sister Babette and mother Morah in tow – as well as Erin McGregor and partner Terry Kavanagh.
Westlife’s Nicky Byrne traveled all the way from Sligo to the event with his wife Georgina, while Una Healy said she was “honoured” to be nominated for most stylish woman.
“I just love being here and seeing everyone dressed up, looking at the fashion. You can’t help but people watch! she told Sundayworld.com.
Former Miss World Rosanna Davison dazzled in a Paul Costelloe dress from her Spring/Summer 2022 which she says was inspired by the Book of Kells.
She said, “It’s so exciting. I used to get to things and not get too fussed. This time, I planned it, saying ‘Okay, I have to do my nails on Tuesday, my hair on Wednesday, my hair on Thursday.’ It was much more military.
And influencers stole the show as Suzanne Jackson, Louise Cooney and Pippa O’Connor raved about the South Side site.
Meanwhile, Dancing With The Stars finalists Matthew MacNabb and Laura Nolan made their red carpet debut tonight ahead of their move to Marbella.
More than 100,000 people voted for their favorite fashionistas in seven categories this year.
Most Stylish Influencer, Look of the Year, Most Stylish Woman in Ireland, Most Stylish Man, Most Stylish Newcomer, Favorite Irish Designer and Most Prestigious Award – Best Dressed on the Night – are all up for grabs.
Nominees include Love Island alum Maura Higgins, Matthew MacNabb and Greg O’Shea while Roz Purcell, Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan and Erica Cody are also up for the gongs.
But the question on everyone’s lips is: who will take home the best-dressed awards tonight?
