DUBLIN designer Simone Rocha is cementing her place as the number one choice for A-list celebs as both Rihanna and Lena Dunham stepped out in her creations.

Pop princess Rihanna donned an all-white ensemble by the Irish designer plucked straight from the catwalk in New York.

She teamed the brocade jacket and matching pencil skirt with patent leather Mary Jane shoes that are part of the talented designer's latest collection.

Only a white fur-trimmed Yves Saint Laurent cardigan disrupted her all-Irish outfit in New York this weekend.

A price tag of more than €2,000 for the outfit didn't faze the star who showcased the look during a promo stint for her upcoming movie Home.

This is not the first time Simone, who is the daughter of well-known designer John Rocha, has caught the attention of the Umbrella singer however.

Last year the Diamonds star set tongues wagging when she stepped out in a sheer white skirt from the label wearing nothing but a pair of pink pants underneath.

It seems that the 28-year-old is well on her way to becoming a fashion powerhouse in her own right as Girls creator Lena Dunham also donned one of her creations recently.

The Hollywood favourite, who writes, stars and directs her own HBO TV show, chose a black off the shoulder jacquard dress to wear to a gala event in LA.

Both women have more in common than being their own boss as Simone herself stepped out in the dress before Christmas when she attended the British Fashion Awards.

On the night she picked up the prestigious title of New Establishment Designer.
