It looks like former Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh's dreams of conquering New York City are coming true.

The 25-year-old model from Tipperary made the move to the Big Apple last year and has wasted no time in maximising her growing contacts book Stateside.

Aoife, who won the beauty pageant title in 2013, shared snaps of herself soaking up the sun at one of the summer's biggest parties - the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New Jersey.

Every year, the bash attracts significant A-list interest and on Sunday, Kendall Jenner, Nicole Kidman, Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra and supermodels Coco Rocha and Lais Ribeiro all flocked to the VIP event.

In March, the model revealed she is aiming to raise her profile and has been signed as a influencer with an NYC-based agency.

"I really enjoy what I do. It's not going to last forever, so I always just like to live in the moment, and enjoy it while I can. I push myself to do my best. I think it's because I don't want to have any regrets about anything, ever. I suppose that's why I take on a lot," she said.
