Reality TV star Mark Wright recently visited Selfridges at Bullring to sign copies of his official calendar for hordes of excited fans. We caught five minutes with him to ask him about all things style and shopping…
How would you describe your personal style and do you have a personal stylist?
I have a stylist for my shows but like to keep my look ‘dapper’, not too quirky. I like a simple but classic look.
When you get time, where do you like to shop?
On the high street I like Reiss and AllSaints but I also love designer brands Dior and Sandro.
What are your essential wardrobe staples this season?
I love wool, so thick jumpers and coats. A big jumper, tight jeans and boots is a good look.
Who would you say is your style icon?
Definitely Beckham – he’s got the looks and always looks sharp in a suit. He’s dapper.
So what’s next for you Mark?
I’ve just finished filming the TOWIE Christmas Special. It was great to go back as a one off and to see the guys, I haven’t seen them for a while. I’ve signed up for another series of ‘Take Me Out – The Gossip’ for next year and will be hosting a brand new Saturday night game show on ITV called ‘My Man Can’. I’m also hosting my own Club Classics show on Heart FM from 7-9pm on Fridays and Saturdays from the New Year so it’s all go for me in 2013.
You can buy a copy of Mark’s 2013 official calendar at Selfridges Birmingham and see his appearance on ITV2’s The Only Way is Essex Christmas Special on Wednesday 19 December at 10pm.
