Roz Purcell is one of Ireland's most influential personalities and one of only a handful of Irish models who successfully transitioned from a photocall career into a lucrative food business.

We first met her as Ireland's Miss Universe contestant in 2010, as a fresh faced UCD student:

Two years later, she was one of the country's top models and her style had rather considerably grown up.

But even beauty queens make the odd style misstep and Roz had the rather unlucky honour of experimenting with her post-teenage style in the public eye. This week, we combed through the archives to go through her style over the years.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?
