Irish footballer Shay Given’s estranged wife made a return to the social scene at a fashion event in Dublin.
Jane Given has kept a low profile since splitting from her goalkeeper husband but yesterday celebrated all things fashion in Dundrum Town Centre.
The couple parted ways early last year after being married for 12 years and Shay began dating PR girl Becky Gibson.
The father-of-two left the couple’s €2m mansion in Cheshire and began a new life with his girlfriend shortly after the marriage ended.
Jane donned a gothic look at Harvey Nichols Spring/Summer show with a chic black leather jacket, short ruffled dress and matching boots.
She injected a bolt of colour with a pillar-box red handbag and let her blonde locks fall naturally over her shoulders in loose curls.
Stylist Annmarie O'Connor presented the brands gracing the catwalk such as Alice + Olivia, Tara Jarmon, Sportmax and Lennon Courtney, which also featured at London Fashion Week.
In March last year, she hit the headlines as it was announced Shay was leaving her and the family home.
They were reported to have separated months before the news was made public.
The Premier League footballer moved into a smaller townhouse just four miles away in Wilmslow, Cheshire.
His new partner, promotions girl Becky, received a stream of online abuse from a Twitter troll because of her relationship with Shay.
She previously dated footballer Nicky Hunt, who plays for League Two team Accrington Stanley, shortly before meeting the Irish goalkeeper.
Jane and Shay met in 1990 in Glasgow when the Donegal native played for Newcastle United and Jane was working as a teacher.
