July 24, 1991

Dr. Winnie King is a multi-talented career woman. Besides being WMAR-TV's health reporter, she is the attending emergency medicine physician at Baltimore County General Hospital. She has been married for one year to family practitioner, Dr. Robert Knight. Although her schedule is busy, she tries to find timeto sew, knit or crochet and she loves to sing and play the guitar.

How would you describe your taste in clothing?

I would say that I have a dual personality when it comes to fashion. At the hospital, I wear a scrub suit with a white jacket; on television I wear bright colored conservative clothes; after work you might see me in jeans and a low cut blouse or something really flashy. I'm unpredictable.

What's the newest thing in your closet?

A fucshia silk suit, that is conservative in construction, but nice and bright for television.

What's the oldest thing in your closet?

Two cotton outfits that I bought in medical school. I've washed them a million times and they've never worn out.

Do you have a true standby that you wear to feel good?

Yes. I love my coat dresses. They are conservative and professional, yet feminine.

What have you held on to for sentimental reasons?

A ceramic makeup holder that my mother gave me when I was child. It's covered with kisses and I love you signs and I will never throw that away.

What is your wardrobe weakness?

I've decided that I'm an equal opportunity shopper, I buy everything. There is nothing that is left out when it comes to my shopping.

What's the most expensive item in your closet?

My fur coats and evening gowns.

What's the least expensive item in your closet?

An old T-shirt that I had at Hood College that says "Hood Girlare Good Girls."

What's the wildest outfit you ever bought?

A string bikini with wild tiger prints on it. I can't imagine that I even brought it home with me. The lights and mirrors at the store made me look different. But when I tried it on in my bedroom, I realized that I could have been arrested for indecent exposure.

What are your favorite accessories?

The ones my husband buys for me. An emerald ring, gold necklaces, lots of gold earrings and I love to wear them because I think of him and how much I love him.

Do you have any shopping tips you'd like to share?

BTC My tip is to shop 'til you drop. There's really no rhyme or reason to my shopping patterns. I guess a good tip would be to always try to buy something that will go with some of your other clothing.
