Roz Purcell wore a design from her debut suit range Scribe By Roz to the VIP Style Awards. Her decision to shun a long gown earned her major kudos.

Dressing like top model Roz Purcell has never been easier.

The 23-year-old beauty introduced her debut suit range, Scribe by Roz at last year's VIP Style Awards and after 12 months of custom orders, the designs will be featured in one of the biggest stores in Ireland.

Roz, a former Miss Universe Ireland, has revealed her collection will be available at House of Fraser in Dundrum from next month.

"My suits are finally going into House of Fraser so obviously they are all custom fitted so it’s a three day service they do in house at House of Frazer in Dundrum," she told us. "I’m hoping to expand my colours to red, Jennifer Aniston wore that deep red and I loved that and I want to do navy blue. It’s launching on the weekend of the 9th, 10th and 11th of April.”

She has already racked up more than a few Irish celebrity fans including top model Sarah Morrissey and Fair City actress Vivienne Connolly.

While she is a bonafide style star, her boyfriend Bressie prefers a more neutral approach to fashion - except when it comes to his feet.

"He always has mad socks," she explained. "Any Christmas present or birthday present, I always pick a crazy pair of socks for him, he just loves them. He wears a lot of black so he likes a bit of colour in his socks.”

Roz also revealed that she is constantly asked about her plump pout and grilled as to whether or it's natural, which she simply puts out to good posing and lipliner.

“I think every journalist has asked me that at one stage," she said. "It’s one of those things, any type of person that is in the media light, if they have any feature that is unusually large...I mean like Angelina Jolie would have got it the whole time and you look at pictures as her as a child and her lips are huge.

"But I have to say, there’s times when I see a photo of me and I don’t look like I have big lips where I’m laughing really badly.

"I have kind of learned how to pose to make them look big. I used to smile and my lips would disappear and now I have learned to smile where I don’t look like a hyena!

"Lip liner totally changes your lips completely, but I do get asked the question a lot and it doesn’t bother me. I totally get it, even when I’m out people come up and ask me especially when I wear red lips, they look huge!”
