She has earned herself a place as the nation’s sweetheart thanks to her girl-next-door looks and affordable wardrobe choices.
But in recent months fans have noticed a dramatic shift in
The presenter, 37, has swapped bargains from the likes of Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins for pricey designer pieces by labels like Reiss, J Crew and Whistles with the help of her stylist Angie Smith.
Just this week, the mother-of-three wore a £280 dress from trendy Parisian label Sandro in the ITV studios, one of her most expensive ensembles yet costing more than seven times as much as some of her earlier outfits.
Holly appears to be stepping up a gear in the style stakes as her already stellar career received another boost with the news she’s to join Declan Donnelly in the jungle as his co-host on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
APRIL: Earlier this year, Holly sported this envy-inducing look – a floral dress from Very costing a purse-friendly £38. Recent outfits have cost more than seven times as much
Holly will stand in for Dec’s sidekick Ant McPartlin, who is taking a year out to focus on his recovery from drink and drug addiction.
Confirmation of the high-profile gig came just weeks after Holly announced the launch of her new business venture, an online lifestyle brand to rival Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop.
Experts predict the lucrative project, launching in the autumn, is tipped to double Holly’s fortune, which already stands at £10 million.
It will incorporate six lifestyle areas – home, fashion, baby, wellness, living and travel.
Celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage told Femail: ‘I really have noticed a shift with Holly’s style; where we once saw high street steals we now see designer pieces.
‘Holly has always thrown in the odd mid to higher end piece but now it seems her daily wardrobe is a high street free zone.
MAY: Holly had another high street hit on her hands, teaming a £39.99 pair of Zara trousers with a £35.99. The entire ensemble, excluding the shoes, comes to just £76
JUNE: Holly won style plaudits with this summery look, teaming a £79 Jigsaw shirt with a £39 blazer and matching shorts from Miss Selfridge which were on sale for just £17 – with the whole outfit coming to £135, significantly more expensive to some of her outfits earlier in the year
JULY: In a marked departure from her purse-friendly high street steals, Holly wore this £189 Whistles dress for an appearance on This Morning in July

‘For me this is a bit of a shame, I loved that she demonstrated how amazing our high street was.
‘Of course we all know holly now earns equal amount to co-host Phillip Schofield, and has designers chomping at the bit to dress her; it’s hardly surprising she is embracing high end styling.’
Lucas added: ‘Her new found styling direction may partly be due to her lifestyle brand launch, this is high end and it could be a simple case of her wanting to proactive what you preach.’
