FASHION guru Trinny Woodall was shocked when she peeled off the sticker on the label of an item in Zara revealing a dramatic price difference for UK shoppers compared to those paying in euros.
The TV favourite, who used to advise women on What Not To Wear, was furious when she realised how much more Brits were paying for their clothes.

Trinny, who runs beauty brand Trinny London, ordered a number of items online from the popular store.
On realising the price difference she said: “They’re really swizzing us.”
She tried on a jumper and said: “It’s a jumper from the Staples collection, £109. I pull back the sticker which says €99.
“So, since when has the pound been worth less than the euro?”
Trinny, who flagged up the problem on her Instagram, where she has more than one million followers, went on to try on a green wool coat.
She said: “Zara really needs to sort out their euro to pound translations.
“Another lovely price point, Zara,” she said, looking at the label again.
“If you bought it in Europe it’s €169 and that’s £199 they’re charging us.”
The style advisor decided to investigate further using a money exchange website. She did a few calculations and concluded that we were being vastly overcharged.
She said: “If I go online, what’s €169 in pounds? If it’s £199 it should be €269 in Europe but it wasn’t, it was €169. So my God, Zara you’re ripping us off.”
