Model, travel expert and our current girl crush. Meet Holly Kingston, the (gorgeous!) face behind our summer edit campaign who evokes effortless style.

Who inspires you?

This will be hard to narrow down, but I’ll jot the first women that come to mind: Victoria Beckham: oozes class, sophistication and she just screams “put together” - whether she’s wearing bold seasonal colours or neutrals & blacks, she nails it every time.

Princess Diana: timeless femininity, even the fashion you see in Diana’s pap shots from back in the 90’s still looks effortlessly iconic.

Hailey Bieber: I’ll give it to her, she’s a trendsetter (albeit trends I can rarely pull off myself) - love her laid back mix of sporty & chic.

Zendaya: I’ve never met a Zendaya red carpet look I didn’t like.

My mum: for the pieces that have been passed down to me from 30+ years ago, still in incredible condition. I have a black off the shoulder knit top from my mum when she was my age, it’s one of my favourite wardrobe staples.

How would you describe your style?

Feminine, confident, relatable, and versatile. Despite my unconditional love & respect for neutral, timeless pieces (of which I have many), recently I’ve become so drawn to bold prints & pops of colour… summer brings it out in me!

I have always loved classic feminine silhouettes with a modern edge - especially fond of midis and maxis teamed with a chunky belt at the moment. I always look for versatile pieces, those that you can dress up or down or mix n’ match. Relatability always factors into any outfit I style up, pieces that are comfortable, wearable and those special finds that you’ll have for yonks but don’t cost an arm and a leg.

What’s a piece you can’t live without?

Any piece that requires very little ironing or steaming! I DESPISE creases / anything ironing related. I also swear by a wide leg, comfortable, sophisticated pant.

What do you think is going to be the top trend this season?

Punchy, bold hues & colours… and a good matchy set!

What’s your advice for someone trying to build their wardrobe staples?

Stick to a colour scheme that is versatile and pairs well together. Also, find styles you feel confident in and go from there - for example I start with my undying love for a pair of wide leg / flared pants, and then I find crisp shirts, structured tanks and boxy tees to match.

What did you love most about working with Review?

I love that the brand is decades old, it’s been around since before I was even born, but the team are so open to work with an array of different people who cater for so many demographics and, in turn, have varying styles. I have had a blast styling up the new season pieces as the brand is incredibly easy going and open minded.

What do you love about the Review style?

It embodies femininity and continuously drops collections that are classic with a modern edge. I have a Review dress which I used to wear regularly when I was working in an office. A dress which is modest enough for the corporate world but fun enough to go from desk to drinks. This is what I believe encapsulates the Review style.
