'50 Shades of Nuacht': RTE news anchor Sharon Ni Bheolain's biker jacket is a Twitter sensation
RTE News anchor Sharon Ni Bheolain's latest ensemble while reporting the news has has caused quite a stir.
The 44-year-old broadcaster, who has been at the helm of the Six One News for 10 years, wore a leather jacket with zips last night, which caught the attention of more than a few.
Her funky number stole the show, with many on Twitter joking that she was taking inspiration from Fifty Shades of Grey for her latest look.
Sharon's sartorial choices have been adventurous of late, including statement jewellery and sequins, but it was last night's leather that garnered the most attention.
The respected journalist caused a stir in 2013, stating her desire to try something new, but RTE have since clarified that she is key to the company's future.
And she's not the only presenter whose wardrobe choices cause a stir among the public - meteorologist Jean Byrne has become just as famous for her personal style as her work, while Miriam O'Callaghan and Grainne Seoige's ensembles are often subjected to praise and scrutiny after their time on air.
