Lisa Wilkinson’s burgundy blouse caused quite a stir on Tuesday, after the Today host was busted by the Daily Mail for wearing the enviable floral number twice in just four short months.
Far from repenting for her crime against fashion, the 57-year-old did something rather daring and wore the controversial outfit again on Wednesday morning.
“From this day forward perhaps my greatest legacy to the annals of female news broadcasting history will likely be that I dared to wear the same outfit two days in a row on national TV,” the veteran journalist wrote in a piece for the Huffington Post, where she serves as Editor-At-Large.
To point out just how ludicrous the whole episode indeed was, her Channel 9 colleagues David Campbell and Sonia Kruger had also donned the controversial garment on Today Extra in a pointed jab at news website.
“Blousegate” is just the latest wardrobe malfunction to blight Australian television, so in honour of Wilkinson’s historic action, we decided to take a look back through the archives at some of the other, erm, memorable outfits we’ll forever hold dear.
