The style stakes were high at the Marker Hotel yesterday

There was a feast of fashion yesterday at the Marker Hotel as tv star Amanda Byram flew into Dublin to launch the 2015 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby.

Amanda looked stunning in a monochrome ensemble as she initiated the event which takes place at the Curragh Racecourse in Co. Kildare on June 27. This year marks the 150th running of Ireland’s most iconic race and will showcase the world’s top horses and jockeys along with the finest millinery and fashion.

Amanda wasn’t the only stylish lady who turned out yesterday evening – models Madeline Mulqueen and Aoife Walsh and their stylist BFF Laura Mullett said they were channelling their inner Disney Princesses with some glitzy headpieces.
