If there's one thing the Garrihy sisters do well, it's turning up the razzle dazzle for a red carpet.

Actress Aoibhín and radio presenter Doireann led the glamorous guests at last night's People of the Year Awards, opting for contrasting all-black ensembles. Aoibhín, who is expecting her first child with husband John Burke, chose a satin maxi dress with cape sleeves from Mango, while Doireann turned heads in a black tuxedo from Millie Mackintosh's now defunct range.

Sunday night's ceremony at Dublin's Mansion House attracted a host of familiar faces, mostly comprised of RTE stars, including Winning Streak presenter Sinead Kennedy, who brought her usual edge with a plunging black gown and sequin bomber jacket.

Host for the evening Gráinne Seoige, who is now based in South Africa, made a rare appearance on home soil for her annual gig of hosting the inspiring event. She chose an asymmetric black gown with rope belt for the occasion.
