Kate Winslet recently stepped out in a figure-hugging Stella McCartney design, that emphasised her slim build and nipped her in in all the right places.
She isn't the first celebrity to use this clever cheat though, as I have noticed:
(Apologies for the shocking cropping, since my Photoshop licence ran out it's been a constant battle with Paint to produce anything of a half-decent quality)
Although a designer dress may break the bank balance, it's still a cheaper and much less painful alternative to cosmetic surgery.
I haven't seen any high-street versions as of yet, but I'm sure it won't be long until they're offering us the perfect figure for under fifty quid.
