SHE is used to glamorous photo-shoots and fancy frocks.

So ex-Miss World Rosanna Davison is moving out of her comfort zone with her next project – judging outfits made from recycled fashion.

The 29-year-old has been confirmed as a judge for Junk Kouture which gives students across the country the chance to show off their talent.

She is joining the panel alongside Dublin stylist and presenter Darren Kennedy, as well as art and design educator Tracy Fahey and environmental expert Yvonne Holmes.

"I'll be looking for creativity, a unique vision, high quality craftsmanship and, of course, everything has to be 100 percent recycled," Rosanna told the Herald.

Some of the more creative entries over the years have included everything from a dress made entirely of old keys or one constructed using banana skins.

Elizabeth Curran, co-founder of Junk Kouture, said:"Each of these judges will bring unrivalled knowledge of their diverse backgrounds to the competition, which we feel guarantees an admirable judging panel for teenagers entering the competition this year."

The judging panel will make their first appearances in March as they judge the junk in regional finals.

Online registration opens today for creative teens and school goers.
