Kate Garraway never puts a foot wrong when it comes to dressing for Good Morning Britain, but the TV star has revealed she has made "a lot of mistakes" in the past. Her most memorable fashion faux pas was after a particularly bad break-up, when Kate threw out the style rule book and purchased… a faux fur trouser suit!
"I have made a lot of mistakes, don't get me wrong," the mother-of-two told HELLO! "I can remember after a particularly bad break-up being convinced, after a long lunch with some girlfriends, to buy a faux fur trouser suit. It looked like this mad teddy bear and it seemed like a great idea at the time, and when I wore it out I was like, 'What were you thinking?' In the end I did wear the trousers on their own with a black top and the jacket on its own with some jeans, but I never wore the combination again!"
Kate said she can always rely on a black dress
Kate, who is judging GMB's Sing It To Win It competition, is a fan of the high street, often stepping out in Warehouse, Dune, Zara and River Island. The TV star has been loving suits recently, wearing a variety of styles for her morning presenting duties. Kate revealed that she can always rely on a fail-safe black dress or a black tuxedo.
"I think a black tuxedo is just the best item ever," she said. "You can put a black jacket over jeans and you can wear it to the most dramatic, glamourous events and you never feel over-dressed. It can be really feminine if you get it cut in nicely at the waist, it's just a really lovely classic look and again you don't feel over-dressed, but dressed up enough, it's brilliant."
The TV star is judging Sing It To Win It with Kimberley Walsh
Apart from her regular Good Morning Britain hosting duties, fans will also see Kate judging the show's Sing It To Win It competition alongside Kimberley Walsh and Marc Fox. Groups are encouraged to send in their video auditions of a track from NOW That's What I Call Music. The winning group will win £5,000, a recording session at the iconic Abbey Road Studios plus the chance to feature on the last track of the celebratory Now! 100.
"It's been really good fun because there's so much talent there, it's fantastic!" said Kate of the competition. "It's been a real eye-opener, we always say, 'Let us know what you're doing when you're watching the show in the morning', but we didn't realise that people were being such stars! It's been absolutely fantastic fun."
