As press were taking their seats and nibbling on the gorgeous scones and cakes in the French Salon at Claridges hotel it was a very different scene backstage! With hair dryers blowing, curlers curling and dresses everywhere, the winners of the Real Women comp, 4 catwalk models and 1 Holly Willoughby were ready to present the SS13 collection.
Lucy, Aillie, Emily and Janey our four real women were pumped with a combination of nerves and excitement, “it feels like ive fallen down a Rabbit hole” said Lucy. With the show only seconds away from starting our lovely ladies lined up behind the door awaiting Holly to announce them in.
A picture in pink Holly was wearing her bodycon dress with lace sleeves and shared her style secrets for each outfit, her favourite being the cobalt blue skater dress. ‘ I want to show my clothes as they should be seen’ says Holly, ‘on real women with real figures walking down the catwalk. This is when the clothes will look their best and the women looked absolutely gorgeous…I am so proud of them’.
The range went down a storm with the press and our ladies did an amazing job. View the Holly Willoughby salon show and see her real women in action – dont forget to let us know what you think, send us a wee tweet using #hollysrealwomen .
