Shahira parties with A-listers at Playboy Mansion
SHE arrived in California a month ago to begin a three-year stint in the US and already Shahira Barry (inset) is partying with the best of them.
Since setting up home in Los Angeles, the Galway girl has been invited over to Hugh Hefner's famous Playboy Mansion.
The 23-year-old is in tinsletown only a few weeks and she has attended the lavish Midsummer Night Dream party and got to mingle with a string of famous faces - including Kim Kardashian's ex husband Kris Humphries.
Dark-haired Shahira spent plenty of time at the Mansion when she enjoyed a stint Stateside in 2013.
And now she's weighing up a career as a Playmate, which previously was not an option because she had no visa.
"In terms of testing for Playmate I've found out that it's still there for me," she said.
"I may do next month but I'm considering very carefully which way I'd like my career to go.
"It's not the posing nude that worries me particularly, it's more about where I can take my career after that."
Shahira has secured a working permit until 2017 and in addition to strutting her stuff in front of the cameras, wants to break into the music industry.
"My dream is to work in the music business so I feel I learn a lot when I'm on the set of videos," she said.
For Shahira, getting to lap up the Hollywood lifestyle is a dream come true.
"Ever since I can remember, Los Angeles was where I wanted to be and for me it's all about having the opportunities to do what I really love like singing, acting, dancing and modelling," she said.
