Every year, during a cold January, Rosanna Davison jets to Germany as part of her partnership with Lambertz chocolate company.

Her annual jaunt includes an elaborate chocolate-themed runway appearance for a star-studded audience and a joint presentation with her father, iconic crooner Chris de Burgh. The former Miss World (34) has been working with the brand since 2009 and last night's look, a gold floor length gown with gilded balls, all made of chocolate with a dramatic - and extraordinarily tall - headpiece. But this year, Rosanna got a royal meet and greet with fellow guest of honour Sarah Ferguson, whom she was placed with prior to taking to the runway on Monday night.

Ferguson's friendship with Lambertz Group CEO Hermann Buehlbecker is well established and she is also a supporter of the chocolate company, based in Cologne. Ferguson, who still lives with ex-husband Prince Andrew in Windsor's Royal Lodge, opted for a semi-sheer black gown with intricate gold detail and according to Rosanna, is as down-to-earth as her image projects.

"Sarah is a fantastic woman, my dad has been pals with her for years and she's as natural, fun and nice as she comes across," Rosanna told Independent.ie Style.

As for her impressive runway turn? "I was sent an image of the dress a few weeks ago and confirmed my sizes, but otherwise I had no rehearsals. The headpiece was enormous - I had trouble walking through doorways!
