It was something of a 'Dancing with the Stars' reunion at the 16th annual Peter Mark VIP Style Awards.

Champion Aidan O'Mahony arrived with his date - Dayl Cronin - looking rather bronzed.

"I was never into fake tan or bronzer before the show," he said. "But I was told I had to wear it with this suit ... possibly by Hughie."

And Dayl picked up the award for Most Stylish Man.

Teresa Mannion and Thalia Heffernan also walked the red carpet outside the Marker Hotel. Thalia's dress was handmade by one of her boyfriend Ryan McShane's friends. "It's got 20,000 diamanté glued on to it," she said. "I'm not really one for all the glamour usually, but I've gone beyond glamour for tonight."

Morah Ryan bought her silk dress from Asos, while her daughter Lottie arrived in a Umit Kutluk creation.

There was lots of see through sheer with TV3's Sinead Desmond arriving in a dress with a see-through top finished with strategically placed flowers.

"These petals better stay in place," she told Karen Koster who flitted about the foyer interviewing guests. Later guests danced at Copper Face Jacks.
