At the premiere of Mildred Pierce in Venice last week, she wore a dress from Stella Mc Cartney’s Winter 2011 collection that featured cunning black panels that whittled inches off her waist. Earlier this year, Liv Tyler took to the red carpet in a similar Stella Mc Cartney dress that was electric blue with black panels, while Victoria Beckham, Carol Vorderman and Kim Kardashian have all been snapped in the same £2,500 design that uses black lines on a white dress to give the impression of an hourglass. It seems to stem from the Spring/Summer collections of 2009, when Alexander Mc Queen and Herve Leger both sent models down the catwalk sporting designs that used graphic motifs to create a waspish waist.
