There’s no denying that ever since Natalie Barr took over as the host on the Sunrise desk, she’s had one incredible fashion moment after the other.

Every day, the 53-year-old stuns on the breakfast morning show, usually showcasing an array of Australian designers on set of one of the biggest platforms in the country.

From balloon-sleeved dresses to show-stopping belts and on-trend wide-legged trousers, it seems Channel Seven’s star host can’t put a style foot wrong.


And this week was no exception, with Nat causing a flurry of excitement online after wearing a beautiful knit midi dress from Australian label Acler.

The nougat coloured dress features a slight cut-out detail at the neckline with a twisted waist bodice detail and long fitted sleeves.

And even better, it’s currently on sale from $350 down to $245 in The Iconic’s Black Friday sale.

If the hue isn’t your cup of tea, the design also comes in a deep noir colour, however it is not currently on sale.

Natalie styled her Acler number with a pair of nude shoes, taking to Instagram to share a photo of the outfit, alongside the caption: “Beige on beige.”

She also used the hashtags: “#wewearaustralian #beige #updo #poser

“Wow! Looks amazing”, one person commented, while another said: “What a beautiful dress…stunning”.

One person simply called the host a ‘goddess”, while another said: “Stunning as per usual”.

In August, in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Nat revealed how the bright outfits she wears on TV are very different to her normal style."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," she told the publication.

"It’s definitely a fun part of my job, and I particularly love wearing Australian brands."

Nat mentioned some of her favourites include Scanlan Theodore, Camilla and Marc, Zimmerman, Acler and Country Road among others.

However, there are a few things she has realised she needs to avoid on-screen.

"Whenever I wear florals people say I look like my grandmother’s couch," she said. "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."
