The after party of the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards was held in the VIP area of Copper Face Jacks, and boy did the celebs take advantage of the free bar.

Champagne flowed as models, TV stars and presenters danced and gossiped the night away.

Model and radio presenter Daniella Moyles declared that she wasn't going home "until the sun comes up".

Fellow models Sinead Noonan, Jo Archibold and Aoife Walsh were all regulars on the dance floor.

Winner of Ireland's Best Dressed Woman, Pippa O'Connor also joined the party with her date for the night Brian Dowling, who patiently waited as fans queued up to grab a selfie with the popular model-turned-fashion-and-lifestyle guru.

Marty Morrissey was spotted doing what resembled a tango at one stage and Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh proved you don't need a drink to have a good time as she and her dancing shoes stayed on until the bitter end.

The Mayo native, who lives in Philadelphia, won Best Newcomer and had well-wishers surrounding her all night.

Singer Paul Brady out with stars
