Did you see the Stella McCartney "Illusion" dress worn by Kate Winslet at The Venice film festival recently? Amazingly, it manages to give it's wearer the perfect hourglass shape without the help of a belt (to define the waist) or shoulder pads to balance the figure. The clever black side panels whittle inches off the waist and, with Kate's dress, the darker shading under the bust make the breasts look larger and higher than they actually are. This dress would cost you a pretty penny but there a similar dresses on the market for the rest of us mortals like the £42 version from Top Shop below.
What do you think of "Illusion" dresses?
I would love to hear your opinion.
