Irish rugby stars Ian Madigan and Robbie Henshaw showed off their style credentials at the Irish Derby this weekend.

The Leinster and Connacht players hit the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at The Curragh on Saturday afternoon with their other halves Anna Kirwan and Sophie Marren.

Anna (22), a makeup artist with Dior from Dublin, has been dating Madigan for more than eight months, while Sophie and Robbie have been together for over two years.

The couple have a well documented appreciation for horse racing, having made their first public appearance as a couple at Fairyhouse Races in April and are said to be "smitten" with one another.

The 22-year-old earned her stripes as one of the most glamorous WAGS on the rugby scene in a chic white pantsuit and nude clutch, with her other half opting for a laid-back look with a pink striped oxford shirt, blazer and jeans.

Independent.ie spoke with Ian Madigan, Luke Fitzgerald and Sean O'Brien today.

Meanwhile, Robbie attended with his university student other half, who was not pictured, for the day at the races. Both rugby players are now in the Ireland camp training for the World Cup.

It was clearly a day for couples as Best Dressed Lady judge Amanda Byram, who opted for cream Umit Kutluk, brought her boyfriend of one year, tv producer Julian Okines.
