Top Model finalist Sarah shows she's outstanding in her field... and leaves Holly in shade

Step aside Holly, it's all about Sarah Kennedy on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model.

The Donegal lass was celebrating last night after becoming the first ever Irish girl to make it through to the final three on the show, led by supermodel Elle Macpherson.

There is no love lost between the fiery red- head and outspoken Holly Carpenter after the pair clashed in the house.

Now, Sarah is making the most of being the only Irish girl left in the competition.

"It's surreal, it's a very weird feeling, but it's probably one of the best feelings I've ever had," Sarah told the Herald.

CHATTY

"The Irish always get behind their own and I think that's the best thing about being in there because you have that flag," she added.

The chatty model won't be hanging around the hills of Donegal for too long as she has her sights set on the bright lights of London.

Sarah is eyeing up a space for herself on the catwalks of Paris and Milan – she says the high-fashion market isn't big enough here.

"It's very hard to break the high-fashion industry, but I knew before going into the show that's what I wanted to do."

The Sky Living show has bred some of our best known models, including Dubliners Holly Carpenter and Hannah Devane and brunette beauty Lisa Madden, who came fourth in the competition last year.

CHARM

However, with her wavy red locks and alabaster skin, Sarah says her unique Irish charm and her ability on the catwalk is what sets her apart.

"My look is very different, so it's a huge part of it, but it also involves a lot of hard work.

"There is a lot of pressure being in the final three and being the only Irish girl, but the judges have put pressure on me throughout the whole show so I prefer it that way," she said.
