Oh me, oh Pi... Georgia is all at sea with a fashion disaster at movie premiere

WE'RE more used to seeing her in barely-there outfits.

So model Georgia Salpa turned a few heads when she attended a film premiere almost fully covered up.

However, the 26-year-old Dublin woman won't be winning any fashion awards for her metallic jumpsuit and six-inch glitter heels.

We all know that the half Greek-half Irish model has a figure many of us would die for.

Humorous

But even someone as beautiful as Georgia can get it wrong as her tight jumpsuit did her no favours.

Georgia, who has gained many more fans thanks to her humorous appearances on RTE Two show Republic of Telly, attended the UK premiere of Life of Pi at Leicester Square last night.

Georgia's profile continues to rise in the UK and she is based across the Irish Sea almost full-time now, and is also loved-up with financier boyfriend Joe Penna.

Georgia's UK schedule remains busy. She left Andrea Roche's modelling agency several months ago and is now managed by Neon Management.

She rubbed shoulders last night with many of Britain's fashion and arts elite, including model Twiggy and Stephen Fry.

The movie's oscar-winning director, Ang Lee, revealed that the new movie was his most challenging yet.

The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon filmmaker's latest offering is a 3D adaptation of Yann Martel's fantasy novel about an Indian boy who is stranded at sea with a Bengal tiger for company.

Tricky

At the film's London premiere, Lee said: "Cinematically speaking, it was the most difficult movie I ever made.

"Water, kid, tiger, a new language I was not familiar with -- 3D -- and it does have a tricky ending that sort of pulls the rug under the audience's feet. That was quite scary."
