It's rare that you get a red carpet in Ireland filled with so many familiar faces.

The Peter Mark VIP Style Awards returns tomorrow night at The Marker Hotel where the beautiful (and bronzed) people will take to the red carpet to give us a whole new crop of dresses to judge.

This week, we combed through the archives to pull out the very best and the worst of the looks - of which there are many - in its 11 year history. Remember when Lisa Murphy made her social debut after one of her (many) breakups to former fiancé Gerald Kean in a completely sheer dress?

Yvonne Connolly, complete with newly dyed red hair, stepped out to tackle reporters before her split with ex-husband Ronan Keating; Celia Holman Lee treats it as her own personal runway and for two years, Katie Price attended and we had a memorable conversation in the bathrooms of Krystle, the details of which I will only reveal in my memoirs.

For all the most talked about looks, check out the gallery below:
