Kate Winslet, Venice Film Festival

Whether it’s from plastic surgery or just being tucked into their clothing, women have long strove for the perfect silhouette.  This time, it’s the “perfect optical illusion” dress that does the job.  Kate Winslet has everyone talking about this dress and how magical it appears. The actress was seen at the Venice Film Festival in September, walking the Red Carpet and looking stunning in a dress from Stella McCartney’s Fall 2011 collection.

But what exactly is the trick to this dress? Well if you look at it, the clever use of colors make women appear curvier and thinner. The black side panel gives the illusion of a high and tiny waist, while the white develops the imaginary hourglass figure. Though the Oscar winning actress never seems shy to show off her voluptuous figure, this multicolor dress with black panel sides and a back slit showed off Kate’s hourglass figure in a very sexy but stylish way. This is precisely why she’s not the only celebrity to sport the magical dress.

Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz

X Factor judge, Nicole Scherzinger, wore it on the cover of August’s InStyle UK, and Penelope Cruz was spotted in a blue velvet version as she walked the Croisette at Cannes this summer.

This dress may be tricky, yet it is very sexy and stylish. These sexy pieces from McCartney had jaws dropping, giving women the confidence they want. So while some may disagree with me and call this deceptive and tacky, I say this is the perfect dress that brings sexy back.
