Hats off to Ireland's Diana Donnelly for daftest outfit ever worn by an Irish woman!

Diana wore this loopy leprechaun outfit for the "national costume" section of the Miss Universe pageant taking place in the Bahamas.

I think I can safely say I have never seen anyone wearing anything like this - not even on St Patrick's Day in New York.

The shamrock hat is straight out of Darby O'Gill and what's with the flag-turned-giant-batwings?

Who on earth designed this shillelagh shambles?

But fair play to Diana for laughing at the outfit. At least I assume that's what she's laughing at, although it could be the fact that she's the joint favorite to win the whole thing.

The 20-year-old Dubliner will fly the, er, flag for Ireland at the contest and the finals take place on August 23.

Roll on the next outlandish outfit.
