Leaving Sam in the shade! Why fashion labels are rushing to dress new Sunrise host Natalie Barr after she replaced Armytage

She’s won over Sunrise viewers since replacing Sam Armytage as host in March.

And it seems Natalie Barr is also winning plenty of friends in the fashion world, with top designers scrambling to dress the 53-year-old presenter.
