Stephanie Roche is a star both on and off the pitch.

The 25-year-old, who shot to prominence when she came second in the competition for goal of the year at the ballon D'Or ceremony in Zurich last week, has become an overnight style star.

She has wowed the crowds on each occasion as she continues her promotional tour and homecoming since nabbing FIFA's prestigious nod.

First, it was her pink lace Helen Cody dress that famously caught Messi and Ronaldo's eye, that earned her major kudos among the fashion set.

On Friday night, for her appearance on The Late Late Show, she wore another classic black lace design by her favourite designer Cody, tailored to perfection.

And her tour de dresses continued as she made her homecoming in Shankill on Saturday night, where she opted for the 'Sia' embellished number from uber hip boutique Folkster in Dublin.

Folkster is a favourite among famous faces like Amy Huberman and Angela Scanlon, and the fun frock is sold for €109, we predict a sell-out after her endorsement.

Roche's stylist Laura Mullett told us she chose the dress as it summed up her style.

"I picked the Sia dress from Folksters  for Stephanie's homecoming as it is funky, but still glamorous. She wore it very well! Stephanie is a real pleasure to work with as she is adventurous when it comes to her style"
