Shopping strip; PUNTERS HAVE THEIR SAY AFTER MODEL EMILY TURNS HEADS ON THE HIGH STREET Is doing a Rihanna and hitting the shops in a swimsuit really appropriate..? We put the risque idea to the test.
SUPERSTAR Rihanna is used to turning heads in revealing outfits - but going shopping in a swimsuit was excessive even by her standards.
The singer just about pulled it off in Monaco. But we decided to find out if Scots would approve of a shopper stripping down for some retail therapy.
We asked stunning model Emily Shakarji, 24, to strut her stuff in swimwear down Glasgow's Argyle Street, one of Scotland's busiest shopping streets. Emily strolled into Debenhams and immediately she was turning heads.
Fraser Law, 38, from Falkirk, said her outfit was "unusual". But he added: "I think it's more of a holiday outfit."
But Lauren O'Donnell, 26, from Glasgow, warned that Emily could get herself into trouble. She said: "She looks fab. But there are some places where you'd get your head kicked in for dressing like that."
Glaswegian Cathy Kelly, 49, said she was slightly jealous that Emily could pull off Rihanna's daring look, adding: "It's a gorgeous outfit but not appropriate for shopping."
Once she finished her shopping spree in Debenhams, Emily headed out on to Argyle Street, where her outfit got the thumbs up from passers-by.
Jeremy Rodgers, 30, from London, couldn't stop himself from staring. He said: "I like it. It's a bit too revealing for the street but she definitely caught my eye."
And David Stewart, 17, from East Kilbride, said he hoped the look will catch on. He said: "If she's comfortable wearing it, I'm comfortable looking at her wearing it."
