Lydia follows in Amy's footsteps with same pair of sky-high wedding heels

BOTH ladies married popular sports stars in lavish ceremonies in Co Leitrim -- and we haven't even got to the shoes yet.

Amy Huberman (31) exchanged vows with rugby hero Brian O'Driscoll (31) at St Joseph's Church in Leitrim in July -- and the style queen is still setting trends for fellow celebrity brides.

Their trip up the aisle has been hailed the showbiz wedding of the year, and Amy is proving she truly is a fashion force to be reckoned with.

Lydia Rock (28) wed Dublin GAA star Alan Brogan in an intimate ceremony at Drumshanbo Church last Wednesday, sporting the same sky-high heels that the actress rocked in the summer.

Both pint-sized beauties took advantage of the platform Nando Muzi heels for their trip up the aisle, in a bid to keep up with their taller other halves.

And while it would normally be considered a faux pas to sport the same style for a high-profile event months after they were first worn, Lydia made them all her own, as she embraced a classic, elegant look for her big day.

Fashion queen Huberman blazed a trail for image-conscious brides throughout the country with her lavish nuptials.

But one of the few able to rival her in the style stakes is newlywed Lydia.

The blonde beauty also sported a pale-pink bouquet similar to Amy's.

The new Mrs Brogan wore an entirely different gown to the Cabinteely native, opting for a vintage-style gown and a neat 'up hairdo' when she exchanged vows, unlike Amy, who wore a strapless lace dress with loose curls.

But Amy had admitted earlier this year that she was slightly embarrassed after she was twice spotted wearing them at high-profile events since her special day on July 2.

But she insisted she's proud to be recycling the shoes.

Speaking to the Herald in August, Amy said: "They are the comfiest shoes. It's funny because I probably can't wear them for a while now. I could have worn them today but that would be embarrassing -- I mean it's like 'get over it'," she joked.
