Newly single Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain has made her return to the social scene since splitting with Ryan Tubridy.

The couple announced their break-up in December after five years together and Aoibhinn has made just her second public appearance since they parted away.

Last night, she was enjoying the perks of celebrity as she joined a host of famous faces at last night's Spring/Summer '15 showcase at Arnotts as she posed alongside her designer pal Niamh O'Neill, who featured in the preview.

The former Rose of Tralee opted for understated glamour wearing a full taffeta prom skirt with OBI belt and silk t-shirt at the invite-only event, styled by Sinead Keenan.

Arnotts' new season showcase displayed their passion for Irish fashion as they focused on homegrown designers Umit Kutluk, Caroline Kilkenny, and Emma Manley, among others.
