Eva was wearing a sophisticated cream dress with ruffle detailing from Cork boutique Phoenix V, Carvella shoes, a floral and net hat by Irish milliner Carol Kennelly and a simple clutch bag by Glitzi Bitz.

Eva gave birth just a few weeks ago, and says that she only tried the dress on for the first time on the morning of the event.

“I gave birth to my first child 10 weeks ago, a baby boy called Tristan and this is our first family outing. I bought the dress when I was eight months pregnant and only tried it on this morning!”

“I’m thrilled to be chosen as the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby’s Most Stylish Lady at The Curragh. I’m already planning my trip to Dubai, wearing my chic new Boodles pendant and checking in to The Marker hotel and enjoying all the Ladurée treats. It’s such an incredible prize and I’m very grateful to the Judges for choosing me,” said Eva.

Singer and TV presenter Rachel Stevens announced Eva as the winner of the coveted prize, which was judged by a panel that included Irish Independent Fashion Editor Bairbre Power and IMAGE Magazine Editor in Chief Melanie Morris.

“We were looking for someone who thoughtfully put their outfit together, made a confident style statement but most importantly was having fun as that’s what the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby is all about and we all agreed Eva was our number one choice,” said Rachel Stevens on helping choose the winner.
