It goes without saying that any of the main presenters of the Six One news on RTÉ tend to be watched with something of a close eye. This is never truer than when somebody decides to make a unique fashion choice.
It can sometimes seem as if the entire nation comes to a standstill if one our most famous faces is spotted making what would appear to be a scandalous sartorial choice. For example, last night’s evening news was causing a bit of a stir for exactly that reason.
Strongly feel Sharon Ni Bheolain should not wear jeans to present the #sixone news. Lack of respect.

Sharon Ní Bheoláin appeared dressed wearing on outfit so shocking we were surprised the national wasn’t moved into an official state of crisis.

The issue: she wore jeans.
No, we’re deadly serious. Some viewers were really not alright with her wardrobe last night.
Though this wouldn’t be the first time she’s come under the gaze of the Irish fashion police. This has been going on for years now.
Is Sharon Ni Bheolain seriously wearing a plunging top with a leather blazer to present the news?? #really

Well, we honestly didn’t think that denim still wielded so much power but it would seem that your go-to for casual evenings can be enough to shock the Irish people on a Thursday evening.
Thankfully, many more Twitter users came to the conclusion that Sharon can pretty much wear whatever she likes while presenting us with the evening’s headlines.
