Amy looked sensational in a Folkster cape and H&M hairband just weeks before giving birth at BOD's book launch.

She may be heavily pregnant, but Amy Huberman has lost none of her style credentials.

The actress wore a Folkster roan wool oatmeal cape for the launch of her husband Brian O'Drisoll's autobiography, The Test, in Dublin.

She wore the cape over a black dress and carried a black clutch handbag to complete the look.

And the Irish clothing store was quick to claim credit for the stylish piece.

"Amy Huberman looked absolutely beautiful in the cape," it said online.

Also available in black, the cape costs €169 and is available in sizes 6 to 14. The website describes it as "the cape dreams are made of".

Folkster said it is an elegant wool cape with beautifully finished shoulders, "an investment piece that will last a lifetime".

Folkster Edit is a collection of its picks of some of its favourite labels found around the world, and this item is from Australia.

It is not the first time that Amy (35) has turned to the brand. In April, she turned heads in a €295 sage-green lace dress with a cream satin slip which she bought from the Folkster.com website and wore to Queen Elizabeth's banquet, held in honour of President Michael D Higgins as part of his state visit to Britain.

Amy has become such a style icon that the "Amy effect" sees items selling out after she wears them.

A silver pendant she wore when announcing her second pregnancy instantly sold out after she was snapped wearing it on social media.

The couple's second baby is due later this month, as revealed by Amy at the beginning of September. The couple are keeping the sex of the child a surprise, however.

The new arrival will be a brother or sister for little Sadie, who was born in February 2013.

Amy gave birth at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street within hours of walking the red carpet at the IFTA awards, on the morning of Ireland's hotly-anticipated Six Nations clash against old rivals England.

However, retired rugby star Brian won't have to worry about rushing off from the hospital this time. Meanwhile, down-to-earth Amy has previously said she finds it strange to be considered a style icon.

"I always feel mildly embarrassed," she said, "but it's flattering. I think they're lying and just being really nice," she joked.
