The awards, now in their 21st year, are a celebration of Irish style and took place at the InterContinental Hotel in Ballsbridge.

Laura Fox, fresh from the Dancing with the Stars dance floor, is hosting tonight’s gala and said she hasn’t taken “a breather yet”, adding that participating in the show was “the time of my life”.

“I felt like I had the time of my life. I knew exactly how long I was going to be there for, it was always going to end on March 17 regardless. And because I made it right to the end, when it finished, I was like: ‘Oh my God, that was amazing’”, she said.

The Galway native revealed she has no time for a respite due to getting ready for the upcoming season of Ireland’s Fittest Family very soon.

“I’m in a great place at the moment, I’m doing everything I’ve ever wanted. So to get the opportunity to stay working is amazing, and I’m loving it. I have a great support,” she said.

Kathryn Thomas was seen wearing a red “Bridgerton” style dress.

“I decided there’s only one night of the year that you can go big,” Kathryn said.

“Any other dresses, when I was looking back, they’ve always been sleek or whatever, so I just said I wanted to go big. I wanted it red, I wanted glam, kind of Bridgerton vibes, I was channelling Nicola Coughlan.”

Rosanna Davison was wearing a pink dress custom-made by designer Golden Stitch.

“It feels amazing, I just think of all nights I might as well do something different and unusual,” she told the Irish Independent.

More that 500,000 votes were cast by readers of the magazine to decide who takes the fashion spoils this year.

Irish celebs were nominated in many categories, such as the Style Icon of the Year, Ireland’s Most Stylish Woman and Man, The Look of the Year award, Favourite Irish Designer Award, Most Sustainable Style, and Best Dressed on the Night.
