Shedding off those extra pounds for Friday’s event is never easy. If you can afford then a wrap or an iLipo would be your go to but an easier way to look slimmer without shelling out precious bucks would be this – an optical illusion dress. This dress comes in many colors and if you’ve been following Stella McCartney and celebrities carrying her signature, these dresses were a constant fare. When worn, the contrast black paneling here will shave inches off your sides, giving you a slimmer look. The the curved waist shaping accentuates your waist by giving you more shape and would make you look more voluptuous.
Other variations of optical illusion dresses include this monochrome zig-zag dress worn by Jennifer Aniston, the silhouette dress by Stella McCartney in blue on Liv Tyler as well as beige on Kate Winslet who probably has worn one in many events…In different colors of course.
Above is Kate Winslet at the 68th Venice Film Festival on September 2, 2011 and beside is a different version of the same color. It’s all about fooling the eyes of the looker, but don’t worry – it’s no crime. Gone were the days when we choose a pure black ensemble to hide those unflattering areas. These dresses are now our go to…

I’ve never been a fashion forward person. I mean I care what I look like, and I always want to look nice. I just don’t think that every little minor detail matters.

I love that red and black dress.
I like the dress that Liv Tyler is wearing in the photo.
I don’t like anything about that dress. It’s too obvious. If I were fat I’d never wear it!
I like the black and blue dress that Liv Tyler is wearing.

Jennifer Aniston is always rocking whatever she wears to red-carpet events! 🙂

Love it! I had one similar to this in high school. It zipped up the sides & was black & white. It is amazing how it shapes your body.
