Popular Australian morning show host Karl Stefanovic wore the same navy blue suit on air for one year to prove a point and nobody got a whiff of his social experiment.
And nope, he didn’t have the knock-off Burberry suit dry-cleaned while he did it.

“I’m judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humor – on how I do my job, basically. Whereas women are quite often judged on what they’re wearing or how their hair is.”

And it must be said, given how closely Wilkinson sits next to her co-anchor every morning, she’s quite the good sport.
