New mum Jennifer Maguire is set to make her first appearance since giving birth to baby Florence last month at tonight's Peter Mark VIP Style Awards.

Ireland's top names will be attending the glamorous event at Dublin's five-star Marker Hotel, which will be hosted by stylist and presenter Darren Kennedy.

The Republic of Telly star and her husband Lau Zamparelli welcomed their baby girl just four weeks ago and now Jen (31) is preparing to walk the red carpet.

"I'm really looking forward to my first night out," she told the Herald.

"I'm still breastfeeding so I'll be racing home at a decent hour - no after-party for me. I'll be well home by one."

The Breakfast Republic presenter, who is set to return to work in June, will be wearing a dress by Limerick-based Marion Murphy Cooney tonight.

Fellow new mum Karen Koster will also be attending the glitzy soiree and will be covering the event for TV3.

Karen (35) and husband John Maguire welcomed baby Finn on New Year's Eve, but Karen will be leaving her boys at home for the evening.

Twink will be going with her two daughters, Naomi and Chloe, and said she's delighted they're having a night out together.

"Naomi has such a busy life and Chloe lives in LA so this is an absolute fluke that three of us are actually going together," she said.

"The amazing Cara from Frock'n'Fabulous has sorted us out with dresses."

Love/Hate stars Susan Loughnane and Aoibhinn McGinnity will also be attending.

Recently-engaged Susan will be wearing a dress from Folkster, as will RTE presenters Sinead Kennedy and Blathnaid Treacy.

Cari's Closet will also have lots of representation on the red carpet as former Miss World Rosanna Davison, stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick and Holly Carpenter will all be wearing shimmering delights from the boutique.

Alan Hughes and Karl Broderick will also be there, and they will be making an impassioned speech about the upcoming marriage-equality referendum on the night.

Roz Purcell, who won Best Dressed on the Night last year will be wearing a suit from her new collection.
