Amy Huberman is flying high after receiving a gorgeous skirt designed by celebrity pal Dawn O'Porter.

The actress was beaming as she posted a photo on Twitter of herself wearing the turquoise skirt adorned with geese.

She showed off her toned physique in the selfie, teaming the skirt with silver shoes and a black tank top.

"My clever pal @hotpatooties made this BOB_by_DOP skirt and I'm never taking it off. Shoes @BourbonFootwear #gerrroff," she wrote.


It seems that many of Amy's followers were happy about the outfit too, with a few describing the £144 (€195) skirt as "stunning".

O'Porter has her own vintage clothing website and line called BOB.

She began the fashion line late last year and revealed recently that she is opening her own pop-up shop in London where she will work herself.

Amy (36) has become a fashion icon, and demand for items that she wears is huge.

It has even been dubbed the "Amy" effect, and demand for jewellery and clothing has soared after she has been snapped in it.

However, Dawn (36) who has a baby son, Art, with her Irish comedian husband Chris O'Dowd, has a big fan base of her own.

BOB was launched last year, and O'Porter said she has a particularly strong interest in the eclectic era of the 1960s.

"I chose to name it after an iconic 60s haircut because I'm nostalgic like that," she said.

"Which is why the clothes I design and source - half the business is vintage - are all designed by the past."

For two weeks starting on Tuesday, O'Porter will have a pop-up shop on Monmouth Street in Convent Garden.

She described the clothes from BOB as being of very high quality.

"Sure, they are investment pieces but they are worth it. The styles never go out of fashion because they are already about the past," she said.


"The fabrics are beautiful, the designs are unique and the colours and prints are really fun.

"I also only do small runs of all my styles, so the chance of you ever seeing anyone in your dress is pretty small.

"You can invest in a dress and know that it will make you feel special for years. These are clothes that you'll never want to chuck away.

O'Porter said that BOB is a luxury brand which also takes in vintage clothing to update and modernise.
