5 reasons why Mary Berry is the ultimate fashion icon


Move over Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne: Great British Bake Off judge and cookery writer Mary Berry is the fashion icon we all need.

As the launch show looms, fans are wondering what the 81-year-old will wear this year. How many floral blazers will make an appearance? Where can we get her chunky necklaces? And can anyone wear head-to-toe pink as well as the queen of the Bake Off tent?

Here are five reasons we cannot get enough of Mary as a fashion icon:

1. Because nobody wears pink as well as Mary Berry
