Hats off to stylish Sarah - and the €6 secret to her look

SHE may be used to modelling high fashion, but top Dublin model Sarah Morrissey also knows a bargain when she sees one, stepping out in a €6 fedora.

The former Miss Ireland attended the opening night of Elf the Musical at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and opted for an understated winter look.

She was decked out in a stylish black biker coat and over-the-knee leather boots, but it was her wine fedora that has us talking.

Sarah snapped up the statement accessory for a mere €6 in Irish high street favourite Penneys.

The eye-catching hat also comes in tan and black and is currently available in stores nationwide.

Sarah (29) tied the knot with her long-term love Pat Jennings, after eight years of dating, in an intimate ceremony in Tuscany in June.

For the big day, she opted for a breathtaking bridal gown designed by Peter O'Brien.

The down-to-earth model who hails from The Liberties, cites another petite blonde, German actress Diane Kruger, as her style icon.

She has enjoyed a successful career working as a runway and editorial model at home and in the UK, and now Sarah has her thoughts firmly fixed on life after modelling.

"I would really love to get into styling but my dream job would be presenting as I did that for two years in RTE," she recently said.

"I'd also love a radio programme."


She has also revealed that her and her footballer husband are hoping to expand their family.

"We want children but not right now. Maybe next year if I'm blessed, you never know," she said.

The newlyweds are planning on spending Christmas at home entertaining friends, before jetting to New York for a holiday early in the New Year.
