Dynamic duo Roz Purcell and Andrea Roche bring glamour to Punchestown Races

She's one of Ireland's top models, but Roz Purcell hasn't forgotten where she came from.
The former beauty queen was discovered by Andrea Roche when she was a first year student in UCD at the age of 19 and the stylish pair are still close as ever.
At 24, she's one of the biggest earners on Roche's books and the two, both hailing from Tipperary, made a stylish turn at day three of the Punchestown Races today.
The pair were on hand as the guest judges on the hunt for today's Best Dressed Lady winner, sponsored by Gold Fever hair extensions.
Roche (38), a former Miss Ireland, opted for an all black ensemble, injecting some colour with a dramatic feathered headpiece, while Roz went for a similarly demure taupe look, accessorising with a dramatic Eugenia Kim hairband.
The duo will be scouring the festival in Naas today for the top prize, which is being sponsored by Gold Fever with a year's worth of hair extensions, a week long five star holiday to Makanyi Lodge Game Reserve located in Timbavati in South Africa, on offer.
The finalists will also walk away with prizes filled with €400 worth of treats, including a personal training session with Body Byrne; pilates training with Pilates Performance; a Vita Liberata tanning pack and Stella & Dot statement necklace.

Daily winners will receive a €1,000 voucher for Gold Fever extensions and an In Style, in addition to the above.
Former Miss World Rosanna Davison kicked off the fashionable festivities on Tuesday, with Lottie Ryan taking over yesterday and Georgia Salpa will be announcing the big winner tomorrow for Ladies Day.
