SAS Australia star Firass Dirani cuts a casual figure as he steps out at Fashion Week… after making some VERY controversial comments about how he thinks women should dress

Underbelly actor and SAS Australia star Firass Dirani enjoyed a day out at the Afterpay Australian Fashion Week in Sydney on Thursday. 

The 37-year-old cut a casual but smart figure in an all-black outfit as he joined the fashion elite at the event.  

Firass turned heads in a black coat and black trousers and sported a rugged look at the Rumer show.

Firass, who portrayed nightclub identity John Ibrahim in Underbelly, teamed the look with black leather boots and a black and white printed scarf. 

He appeared in high spirits as he stepped out, smiling as he posed for photos. 

In March, the outspoken star made headlines when he suggested that all women should dress modestly like his mother did in her youth.

Firass uploaded a black-and-white photo of his mother and aunt in their youth, and commented on how ‘natural’ they were.  

Some Instagram users suggested Firass was being ‘sexiest’ – a misspelling of ‘sexist’ – to which he cheekily responded: ‘Thanks’.

Another said: ‘So are you implying woman don’t wear enough clothes now? Your family is lovely but your comment is kind of condescending.’

In response to this, Firass wrote: ‘I’m saying society is pornified. Look at your Instagram feed. It’s nothing new…’

However, he did agree his comments could also easily be applied to men. 

Firass was known for butting heads with his SAS Australia co-stars Shannan Ponton and Merrick Watts on Seven’s military-inspired series last year.

After getting much of the cast offside at various points, he was kicked off the show before the season was over.
