Holly reveals why she owes her style icon status to her mother

Dancing On Ice queen Holly Willoughby may be the best dressed mum-to-be on TV, but she credits her own mother for teaching her how to dress her curves.

‘My mum Lyn and I are exactly the same shape,’ Holly tells Now.

‘She’s very feminine and glamorous and always looks good, so growing up I always had a role model for dressing to suit my shape.

‘She’s kept loads of her old bits for me, which I’ll always do now. In fact, the item of clothing I’d save from a burning building is one of my mum‘s wool jackets from the 70s which goes with everything.’

‘If I’m ever having a big throw-out session, I’ll always think, “I’m going to keep that for my children to wear one day”.’

Now Holly has her own fashion collection, it’s time to return the favour.

‘When my mum needed a dress for my sister’s wedding, we couldn’t find an LBD that was sexy but still covered up, so I designed the one in my latest collection,’ Holly reveals.

‘My favourite frock is the white cotton summer dress. It looks like it could be one my mum passed down to me.’
