Beauty queen Gráinne Gallanagh made her debut at Miami Swim Week, making her the first Irish model to feature at the event.

The 25-year-old nurse from Buncrana, Donegal, who splits her time between Ireland and London, walked in the Liliana Montoya show in Florida's Magic City alongside a stream of seasoned catwalk models. Miami Swim Week is an off-shoot of the usual Fashion Week fare in London, New York, Milan and Paris, instead focusing on the wealth of swimwear designers featuring their collections from around the world.
