It's hard to believe it was four years ago when Roz Purcell took to the world stage at Miss Universe.

While her career may have come leaps and bounds from her pageant queen days, the top model shared a throwback video of her during the swimsuit round.

The then 20-year-old rocked a barely there lilac bikini with embellishments as she strutted her stuff on stage. Her performance earned her a 8.78, as the video shows, and she eventually came seventh in the competition.

In the 2010 finals, she was hotly tipped as a favourite to win Miss Universe and while she eventually lost out on the crown, she earned the best result of an Irish representative ever had at the pageant.

While she is now one of the country's busiest models, who features in campaigns, photocalls and catwalk shows, she's carving out a new niche for herself as a health guru as she's releasing her debut cookbook later this year.
