Holly Willoughby brought the sunshine at the weekend as she uploaded a smouldering selfie of herself with the most dreamy blue sky backdrop. The This Morning host showed off her new shorter locks – whilst looking effortlessly cool in a white blouse - but all eyes were on her super-glam sunglasses. The 37-year-old wore a pair of Finlay & Co cat-eye shades in bold black, and we think you'll agree, they framed her face and gave her a femme fatale look. We love how the frames sweep upwards and gave her a total movie-star vibe.The glasses are by Finlay & Co – the very same cult sunglasses brand loved by The Duchess of Sussex. Holly wore the 'Henrietta' style which retail at £140.

The Duchess of Sussex put the brand on the map when she headed to the Invictus Games with her then boyfriend Prince Harry in 2017.

The stunning former Suits actress was the epitome of casual chic – wearing a simple white shirt, skinny jeans and a tan handbag – but fans went particularly wild for her sunglasses. She wore the Percy Light Tortoise frames which retail at £120.

After the Duchess of Cornwall wore them, pre orders for the shades came in from over 50 countries and it took a whopping 180 days for them to come back into stock. She had her initials engraved on the stem of her sunnies – which can be added for £40 on the brand’s website.

David Lochhead – the co-founder of Finlay & Co – revealed the hysteria surrounding Meghan's sunglasses and how she effected sales. "Around 75% of all pairs sold online in the last six months were of the Percy style. We've had lots of customers coming in-store and asking to try the Percy style on,"he said.

"We have seen a sales uplift in the past from celebrities such as Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne wearing Finlay & Co, however, the impact from Meghan wearing has been on a different scale."
