Darren Kennedy was a lively host, weaving through the crowd as he introduced himself to Conor McGregor’s two bodyguards, appropriately named Rocky and Drogo.

Eurovision hopeful Nicky Byrne nabbed the Most Stylish Man award, however he is in Stockholm and unable to accept.

Top stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick wore a serious pair of statement Fendi heels as she presented model Jo Archbold with the award for Look of the Year.

Celia Holman Lee was awarded Most Stylish at the Marker, a category voted for by the guests on the night.

The 65-year-old TV presenter and model agent told the room: “Tonight is something the fashion industry needs. I’m more than honoured and I can’t believe I won this, at my age!”

Rosie Connolly of Hearts, Heels and Handbags blog became the first ever winner of new category Most Stylish Online Influencer, and thanked the VIP Style Awards for recognising the work of bloggers.

Famed RTE reporter Teresa Mannion made an appearance to present the Most Stylish Newcomer award, joking at the podium that she’s “actually more wellies than stilettos”.

“I took a treacherous risk tonight trying to get up the stairs in these shoes, but it was a necessary journey,” she said.

The room burst into cheers and applause as Dee Devlin was named the winner.

She giggled as she accepted the gong, saying: “This is gonna look great beside Conor’s Most Stylish Man award!”

The highly-anticipated Most Stylish Woman award capped off the night, as Rosanna Davison crowned Vogue Williams this year’s winner.

“I’m regretting those 9,000 vodkas earlier,” Vogue joked as she took to the stage.

“My mum’s gonna be thrilled about this, she told me not to wear this shirt.
