I previously mentioned my Girl Crushes on Rachel Bilson and Audrey Hepburn here and here yet those attachments are eclipsed by my HUGE girl crush on Holly Willoughby (or if you’re a fan of Celebrity Juice, Holly Willoughbooby!)
I’m going to be honest. I envy her figure. I envy her clothes. I envy her hair. I envy her bubbly personality. Basically I’m a green eyed monster! I should hate Holly for being so pretty and nice and stylish. But I can’t. I JUST WANT TO BE HER!
Holly is one of those lucky souls that have progressed from kiddies TV to bonafide nation’s sweetheart with her presenting on This Morning, formerly Dancing On Ice and soon to be The Voice.
Style wise she and best pal Fearne Cotton design collections for Very.
Whilst Fearne’s collection receives alot of media coverage over the “coolness” of it I sometimes feel Holly’s collection is wrongly overlooked. Be it a tea dress or a more structured cocktail dress I think Holly’s collection is suitable for most women.
Another reason I love her so much is her decision to wear strapless dresses whilst having such big boobs! There was many complaints when Holly wore a “revealing” dress on Dancing on Ice she however appeared to shrug off the controversy by saying (on her reaction to her Dancing on Ice dress incident) “I’m proud of my curves, I’m not going to wear dresses up to my neck – that’s just not me. I have boobs and hips and I dress to accommodate them – that’s not going to change.”
Yup Holly’s dresses may show off cleavage but they never look tarty due to the lengths of the dresses. She embraces her curves instead of trying to hide them.
As for her hair, I am at a loss as to how to achieve Holly’s volume and level of shine on dyed hair.
Pretty much ALL the men I know admit to fancying Holly – I think it’s the mixture of girl next door innocence against the fun loving and often naughty Holly on Celebrity Juice. She is a self-confessed good girl often saying “The only time I ever got in trouble was when I threw my shoe across the classroom. Hardly sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.”
There must be an outrageous number of men who fancy Holly, when I was looking through Google for images one of the most commonly searched phrases was “Holly Willoughby Celebrity Juice School Uniform” NICE!
Below are some of my fave photos of Holly:
Channelling Brigette Bardot
Fun and flirty
With the Silver Fox himself Phillip Schofield
Embracing her curves with another lovely dress
Even "dressed down" she still looks put together
Poured into a red show stopper for the red carpet
Another day, another tea dress
taking the piss with Ant and Dec after a drunken night at the NTAs
And here is one random photo of me where apparently I look like Holly!
In the pub with my lovely cousin Ashley
My hair has never been that big before and I just can’t recreate it again 😦
I think my cleavage mixed with a pencil skirt and heels were the only reasons for me being nicknamed Willoughbooby all night!
