Emily Ratajkowski knows a good bargain when she sees one.
With Penneys in full promotional mode ahead of their American launch next week, they secured a major coup with the model and actress confidently strutting her stuff in their €9 skirt.
The swimsuit model and actress (24) was hosting a Primark event in New York City last night and naturally, she opted for a piece from every Irish woman's favourite bargain brand for the occasion.
Her crushed velvet, high waisted skirt will be available for sale when the store officially launches in Boston on September 10.
Emily, who shot to fame in the music video for Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines has seen her career skyrocket since, regularly appearing on both Sexiest Women int the World and Best Dressed Lists.
And it's little surprise she was chosen by the Dublin based brand to become the first US celebrity to sport its designs as Emily has deep connections to Ireland as she grew up in Bantry, Co Cork.
"I absolutely love Ireland. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth and I have strong ties here," she said.
"Both my grandmothers are from Ireland and I have spent every summer in Bantry since my father, who is an artist, had the romantic idea 20 years ago to buy an old farmhouse on the west coast and renovate it.
"I go back any time I get the opportunity and I have many friends who I still hang out with in the local pubs. I have great childhood memories cow-tipping, going off and getting lost in the bog for hours and coming home covered in dirt."
