Holly Willoughby stuns in red velvet dress to mark special occasion

Holly's Ghost dress had major Kate Middleton vibes

Megan Bull

Holly Willoughby just donned the most decadent velvet dress to mark a very special occasion – the first ever Christmas Day episode of This Morning. Ravishing in red, the presenter modelled a wine-coloured midi from Ghost, one of the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite brands – and we reckon the royal would love it too.

Looking as lovely as ever, Holly teamed her unusual frock with black buckled stilettos. As for her hair and makeup, the TV star wore her blonde hair down in a sleek, straight style and opted for a natural and dewy complexion. Dusting her eyes in a brown smokey shadow complete with soft, rosy blusher and a statement red lip to match, the mum-of-three looked absolutely stunning.
