Curvy Holly Willoughby has said that she loves the old-fashioned glamour of Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe(actress, singer, fashion model). And that’s what she is trying to achieve with her new collection for online fashion store Very.The This Morning presenter appears in a new TV advert, modelling a dress from her autumn/winter line.
She can be seen serving canapes in a room full of her friends, who clink their glasses together, as she says: ‘It’s all about art deco this season. Bring on the Hollywood glamour.’ The mother-of-two then models in front of a mirror, showing off the white maxi-dress with embellishments on the shoulders, and a pair of satin heels.
Holly says: ‘Nobody’s missed this headturner, or these satin sparklers, and this gathered waistband hides a multitude of sins.’ On Very’s website she admits: ‘I turned up the glam factor a bit for autumn. It’s never too early to start thinking about parties.’ The label says Holly ‘wanted to design pieces that will make every woman feel glamorous and feminine, just like her signature style. ‘A girl who doesn’t like to slavishly follow fashion trends, this collection uses classic shapes that will really flatter your figure.’ Size 12 Holly, who gave birth to Belle in April, said previously that she wasn’t concerned about losing her baby weight in a hurry.
Following the birth of her son Harry in 2009, she said: ‘Even before I had Harry I was never that skinny, so I’m not worried about it.’ ‘I’ve loved seeing the changes in my shape. From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I couldn’t wait to be huge.’ Although last week she was envying another Jodie Marsh’s new bodybuilding figure.
She tweeted: ‘Morning. Just seen Jodie marsh, she on in just a moment! How has that happened in 8 weeks?! X’
