Had she not been so very talented, Polish model Natalia Sikorska, 28, would have woken up this morning in a British prison cell.

Instead, she donned a pair of brightly coloured leggings and rose-tinted designer sunglasses to go for a late morning jog in Chelsea, MailOnline can reveal.

The model, who lives in a shoddy block of flats in the backstreets of exclusive Kensington, was let off with a conditional discharge yesterday after attempting to steal £1,000 of designer goods from Harrods.

In remarks that have caused widespread outrage, the judge said that he made the strikingly lenient ruling because of Sikorska’s ‘considerable talents’.

This morning, Sikorska was chatting cheerfully to a friend on a top-of-the-range pink iPhone as she warmed down in the street after her workout, turning heads amongst passers-by.

Dressed in striking leggings, a crop top and sunglasses, she appeared not to have a care in the world.

The model, who is studying business management and economics at the University of Westminster and works as a business development manager for a drinks bottle manufacturer, was apprehended in the Knightsbridge shop on 5 July with a haul worth £959.59.

After she admitted theft in court, Westminster magistrate Grant McCrostie gave her a conditional discharge for 12 months. He said: ‘You are obviously a woman of considerable talents. You are obviously intelligent. 

'Taking goods from any store, including Harrods, is wrong. Because of the fact that you pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and you do have a potentially bright future, we will deal with this more leniently than we should have.’

After admitting the theft yesterday, Westminster magistrate Grant McCrostie gave the Polish model and actress, who has recently moved to Britain, a conditional discharge for 12 months.

He said: 'You are a newcomer to this country, you are a student with a place at university.

'You are obviously a woman of considerable talents, you are obviously intelligent.

Mr McCrostie said if Sikorska, who is currently studying business management and economics at the University of Westminster, stays out of trouble for that period she will not face any further punishment. 

Continuing he sentencing, he added: 'Taking goods from any store, including Harrods is wrong.

'Your future has been put at risk by these actions.

'Because of the fact that you pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and you do have a potentially bright future, we will deal with this more leniently than we should have.

WHAT SHE STOLE

Sikorska, 28, attempted to make off with a Markus Lupfer jacket, a pair of Claudie Pierlot shoes, a Pinko handbag and a silver knife on July 5.

She was stopped before she left the Knightsbridge store with the haul worth £959.59.

She thanked the magistrate after he told her she would only be handed a condition discharge of 12 months for the crime. 

He said: 'You have been given another opportunity do not abuse the opportunity we have given you, stay out of trouble,' he said.

Sikorska replied: 'Thank you so much.' 

The defendant began studying business management at the University of Westminster in 2015, a year after she first moved to London to work as a receptionist.

She is currently employed as a business development manager for drinks bottle manufacturers Aquatiser and as an interpreter.

Before moving to England, she previously studied psychology at the University of Warsaw and has worked as a sales associate with variety of luxurious brands such as Saint Laurent Paris, Globe Trotter and Hugo Boss.

Sikorska, of Chelsea, West London, was given a conditional discharge, ordered to pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

SENTENCING GUIDELINES FOR SIKORSKA'S THEFT

As magistrate Grant McCrostie admitted, he dealt with the model 'more leniently than we should have.'

Sentencing guidelines for sets the benchmark between 'Category 1' and 'Category 2' at £1,000.

Because Sikorska's haul came to £40.41 under that threshold, she just missed being in the more severe Category 1.

The sentencing guidelines for this level of theft range depending on the level of pre-planning and violence that went into the theft, coupled with any mental disabilities or if they were forced into it by others.

As Sikorska showed no signs of either, it is likely that she would fall into the 2C category - the least serious of Category 2 theft.

But, due to the high value of the items stolen, the sentencing guidelines recommend that judges or magistrates should issue the defendant with a fine, and not a discharge.

It should be noted, though, that these are merely guidelines and not steadfast rules - magistrates have the power to deal on a case-by-case basis as they see fit.
