Konnie Huq revealed yesterday that she hasn’t bought new clothes in a decade – and these snaps prove the TV presenter really is the ultimate thrifty shopper.
Photos show how Konnie, 44, is a fan of re-wearing pieces that have been sitting in her wardrobe for years, whether it is a trusty pair of boots or a versatile yellow blouse.
Even on the red carpet, when so many stars insist on a new look, Konnie is happy to bring back out a tried-and-tested look like an animal print frock or a classic LBD.
It comes after the former Blue Peter host explained on Loose Women yesterday that she ‘doesn’t need’ to buy new clothes as she is the same size as when she was 18. Viewers were left in awe of the star’s ageless good looks, with many claiming she ‘hasn’t changed at all’ since first gracing screens on Blue Peter in 1997.
Her relaxed approach to re-wearing outfit shows Konnie is the queen of sustainable shopping – something that other stars have only just started to adopt.
Here, a look back at some of her best recycled looks.
