By

Everyone loves Holly Willoughby’s style. She’s known for the array of timeless, chic ensembles she wears to present This Morning in, and the breathtaking dresses she dons to front Dancing on Ice, too.

The best bit? Luckily for fans, she’s normally wearing clothes that are available to buy on the high street, which means that it’s super easy to get your hands on them yourself.

Today’s look (2 February) saw the presenter pair a timeless shirt dress with nude court heels and natural-looking make up.

Sharing a photo to her seven million Instagram fans, as she usually does pre-show, she showed off the dress, which has elbow-length sleeves, a trim collar, and comes in a blue and white floral pattern.

She shared: “Morning Tuesday… today on @thismorning we are going live to Gobblers Knob (yes you heard) to celebrate Groundhog Day! … although it’s feels like we’ve been doing

Must Read: Why Rioters Dress in Costume, TV Placements Are Becoming Crucial Marketing for Fashion Brands
By

These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Friday.

Why rioters wear costumes
In the wake of Wednesday’s attack on the capitol, The New York Times‘s Vanessa Friedman explores the rationale for rioters dressing in costume. “What rioters wore when they stormed the United States Capitol…may seem entirely irrelevant to the unprecedented nature of the moment,” she writes. “Yet these choices also helped feed the frenzy of the event, as the pageantry of aggression turned actual.” The New York Times

TV placements have become increasingly important for fashion brands
Placements on television shows have become crucial marketing tools for fashion brands. “Having clothes or accessories prominently featured in a television show or movie is priceless exposure. That’s never been truer than during the pandemic when consumers spent endless hours watching and rewatching their favourite [sic] series,” writes Alexandra Mondalek for Business

The name on everyone’s masked-up lips in the fashion world right now? Dublin native Laura Weber. The NCAD graduate has officially joined the ranks of celebrity-favorite designers following her work on First Lady Jill Biden’s evening ensemble for the presidential inauguration.

Weber created the embroidery for Ms Biden’s white cashmere coat and silk wool cady dress, designed by Gabriela Hearst, for weeks, spending two to four hours applying a flower for each of the 50 US states to the dress’s silk organza neckline and arms.

Floored by the response, she told RTÉ that the work had been “a labour of love” which started at the start of December and took over a month to perfect.

“We developed each flower for each US State and Territory. We chose every bead, every stitch, every stitch direction, every colour and we prototyped all of those and when they were approved we lay it

Couture Fashion Week Exclusive: Daniel Roseberry On His New Schiaparelli Collection & Lady Gaga’s Inauguration Dress

He also took inspiration from Elsa Schiaparelli’s original wooden mannequins, a girl and a boy “she loved so much she gave them a wedding ceremony,” he says, to create anatomic bustiers in leather. Kim Kardashian was the first to wear a green rendition of this style for her Christmas party.

Elsewhere, Roseberry wanted to inject a cool-casualness to couture, continuing to innovate on materials by using a denim treatment over duchess satin to create a suede-like fabric, and designing exaggerated hoodies, pieces tailored to rockstars and discerning editors alike. “It’s a privilege to make couture for people who make culture,” he says.

A neck-to-toe embellished piece that is revealed to be made in a stretch-knit fabric understandably required the most extensive hours. 

Roseberry recently made headlines for dressing Lady Gaga for the inauguration ceremony. Of the experience he said: “It was actually quite last minute and we didn’t know
