The Wardrobe Hack Sunrise’s Nat Barr Uses To Maintain Confidence At Age 53

The Wardrobe Hack Sunrise’s Nat Barr Uses To Maintain Confidence At Age 53

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, morning TV show hosts are keepers of the best beauty secrets.

After all, when you’re expected to be up and out of bed in the wee hours, you need the eye cream hacks of Brook Boney and everyday moisturiser of Lisa Wilkinson to get you through.

But for Sunrise‘s Natalie Barr, the best boost to her confidence comes from a colourful wardrobe. “My ‘real life’ involves a lot of black, navy and brown, but my ‘Sunrise life’ is all about colour, so I get to be a different version of me,”  the breakfast TV host told Woman’s Day. “I’m so much more open-minded working with a stylist who says, ‘Just try it on!’ I love a jacket but it used to be the only thing we were allowed to wear. Now the whole world of fashion has opened up to us.”


Since taking over co-host duties from Samantha Armytage earlier this year, Nat’s glowing face has been on our TV screens most mornings. And according to Woman’s Day, her youthful look is all thanks to a short and sharp exercise regimen and “simple meal plan”.


“I haven’t had Botox – though no judgement if you do,” Nat shared. “I’m just glad the viewer doesn’t expect us all to be 23.”

Apparently the 53-year-old prefers to stick to laser treatments and facials instead. Oh how we miss the salon right now…

  1. Yes, I adore colour, provided a certain colour suits my colouring. Bright & jewel tones tend to suit me best. I don’t hate monochromatic colours though, but I do need to break them up otherwise I find it boring as heck. Variety is the spice of life!

  2. The Sunrise Makeup and Wardrobe Team are very good at making Natalie Barr look her very best. Myself Personally I tend to wear a lot of Black, because of my dramatic weight loss will have to buy a lot of new clothes, usually stick to Black and White and Neutral Colours, maybe this year I can try to add some Colour to my Wardrobe.

  3. She looks so good. I’m 51 but I’d definitely think she was younger than me if I didn’t know her age. Nice to know you can do this without invasive surgery and botox!
