Models bring taste of Nordic glamour

THE BEAUTIES featuring in Norway's Next Top Model have arrived in Dublin.

Dublin was selected ahead of London and Amsterdam as the "perfect fashion city" for an episode of the Norwegian series.

The show's nine participants will spend the next three days in the capital, completing tasks designed for the show in collaboration with Failte Ireland.

The series, in the same format as the US version presented by Tyra Banks, always features an episode filmed in a foreign city.

The schedule includes a fashion shoot in the docklands with Irish designer Louise Kennedy.
