Prue Leith reveals her recipe for style choices

"I think glasses are absolutely under-rated," she says, settling on to the end of her double bed - covered, of course, with a multi-coloured throw. "Everyone always wears boring black or grey or rimless ones because they go with everything.
"I always ask women what they spend their money on.And it's always shoes and handbags."But shoes and handbags spend all their lives in the cupboard or under the table, whereas glasses are on your face for 12 hours a day."
It's a good point, which is why she has teamed up with designer Ronit Furst to launch her own range of 72 different colours and designs.
"It started when I was named 'SpectacleWearer of theYear' - which is a terrific joke because it's the only award one can win for doing absolutely nothing," she says.
"I've always worn colourful glasses and I love Ronit's designs, so I said I'd love to have a range of them. The next thing I knew, Ronit and her husband turned up in London." And the rest, as they say, is history.
