Most Dancing on Ice viewers at home in snowy lockdown likely couldn’t imagine wearing a ballgown any time soon. Yet presenter Holly Willoughby and her stylist Danielle Whiteman are committed to bringing fairytale dressing to the small screen. ‘Gosh, it feels good to put a sequin on,’ Willoughby wrote on Instagram last week.
We are only two episodes into the new series of the popular ITV show, but the duo has already caught the audience’s attention with their take on fantasy fashion. How to follow last week’s feathered, blush pink Dany Atrache gown, a dress which became a talking point on social media? Willoughby has, for this Sunday’s show, turned to British bridal designer Kate Halfpenny.
Holly’s outfit offers a perfect “mix of cool and romantic” for the Dancing on Ice brief, Kent-based Halfpenny tells The Telegraph. In this case, the solution from her label Halfpenny London was an embellished corset and skirt, rather than a dress.
