Natalie Barr reveals the fashion choices she’s told to ‘avoid’ while hosting Sunrise – as she admits her on-screen look is the complete opposite to her ‘real life’ style

She’s the popular Sunrise presenter who rarely puts a foot out of line when it comes to fashion.

And on Sunday, Natalie Barr revealed which clothes her stylists ‘avoid’ dressing her in while hosting the Channel Seven breakfast show, including anything ‘shiny, bulky, with thin stripes or checks’.

Revealing her fashion secrets to The Daily Telegraph, the 53-year-old said: ‘Whenever I wear florals people say I look like my grandmother’s couch.

Who knew? On Sunday, Natalie Barr revealed which clothes her stylists ‘avoid’ dressing her in while hosting the Channel Seven breakfast show, including anything ‘shiny, bulky, with thin stripes or checks’

‘If I wear a sheer top people say I look like I’ve just come from a night out. We do try to stick to plain colours, but avoid shiny, bulky, thin stripes and checks.’

Natalie went on to say that her colourful style on the show is worlds away from the ‘black, navy and brown’ outfits she chooses in ‘real life’. 

But she enjoys being able to showcase ‘a different version’ of herself on-screen.

'If I wear a sheer top people say I look like I’ve just come from a night out. We do try to stick to plain colours, but avoid shiny, bulky, thin stripes and checks,' Natalie added

Natalie said being able to wear a range of Australian brands from brands such as Camilla and Marc, Zimmerman and Scanlan Theodore is a fun part of her job.

She explained that since replacing Samantha Armytage as the host of the popular show, she’s become more open-minded working with stylists who say, ‘just try it on’. 

It comes after Natalie was forced to deal with a snarky tweet posted by her Sunrise predecessor, Samantha.

Sam last month shared a ‘catty’ tweet about her former colleague, accusing her of being ‘desperate’ for the top job – which Natalie was reportedly ‘gutted’ over.

‘No one was more shocked and saddened over Sam’s comments than Nat,’ an insider told New Idea magazine. 

‘She is gutted and has no idea why the snarkiness continues, even though Sam has been gone [from Sunrise] for months.’
