DOLORES O'Riordan is known for her eclectic sense of style.

Let's not forget – this is the chick who got hitched in a see-through wedding dress and cream leather lace-up boots.

Picking out stage ensembles for her could be a haunting experience but Dolores (right) says Anne Marie O'Connor – the new stylist on The Voice of Ireland – is doing a top notch job.

Dolores said told the Diary: "Anne Marie is great. She's looked at everything I've ever worn on stage over the years and then buys pieces based on them. She's very clued in."

And she added: "She's got loads of great Irish designers and has bought some brilliant pieces including these amazing boots that are covered in studs.

The mother-of-four will replace Sharon Corr as a judge on the show and she is delighted to be part of it.

"It's a bit of fun really. I only watched the show for the first time ten days ago," she said.

"For me it's just an experience. It's something new – nothing ventured, nothing gained."

The singer and her family moved back from Canada to Ireland six weeks ago and are still in the midst of moving pans and boxes of clothes.

Asked if her sprogs were settling back into Irish life the Cranberries star laughed: "That's an unfolding equation – we won't go there."
