Rosie and Glenda will do battle for VIP style gong

ONE year after their infamous falling out, Rosanna Davison and Glenda Gilson are set to go head to head again at this year's Peter Mark VIP Style Awards.

The Diary can reveal how the pair have been pitted against each other once more in the category of Most Stylish Woman when the star-studded ceremony takes place at the Shelbourne Hotel on March 25.

However, it looks like Rosanna (26) may have to miss out on the glitzy bash for the second year running, after booking another skiing trip to Val D'Isere with a group of pals.

The glamorous blonde pulled out of the celebrity bash at the last minute last year following her controversial getaway to Marrakesh with property developer Johnny Ronan.

Johnny whisked Rosie, 30 years his junior, and a pal to a five-star resort within hours of a major on-street bust-up dubbed the 'Ranelagh Rumble' with his former flame Glenda.

Since then the models' friendship has cooled enormously, with no sign of a thaw in sight.

The pair will have plenty of competition for the title on the night, however, with a bevy of beauties including Grainne Seoige, Amy Huberman, Victoria Smurfit, Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain and Karen Koster all featuring in the line-up.

RTE weather presenter Jean Byrne has also nabbed a spot in the category, despite her often controversial style choices while presenting the national broadcaster's weather bulletins.

The Montrose star found herself at the centre of a media storm earlier this month when she hosted the slot in a risque black 'spiderweb' dress.

None-theless, her brave outfit choices will see her go head to head with some of the nation's best-known TV personalities for the title.

Many of the usual suspects turn up in this year's Best Dressed Couple section, with the noticeable exclusion of Rosanna and her longtime beau Wesley Quirke.

Instead, organisers have included Rosie's high-profile parents Chris De Burgh and Diane Davison.

Their competitors for the title include Nicky Byrne and Georgina Ahern, Keith Duffy and Lisa, Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond, and Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman to name but a few.
