The award circuit for 2010 has kicked off with a bang, as stars frocked up in their designer’s best for the Golden Globes. MWW explores the fashion secrets for looking your best in the red carpet style stakes!
Structuring the Figure Hug
Choosing a figure hugging dress can be a little scary unless you are a supermodel, with every curve, bump and lump on full display… a la the body con dresses that have popped up in recent fashion seasons. The stars who have gone for the figure hugging numbers this time, all have designs which employ clever structural techniques to accentual their svelte shapes. Just take Emily Blunt’s strapless gown, which is boned to give the shape and has subtle chiffon gathering from the waistline down to elongate her frame. The gold and silver elaborate patterns on the likes of Jennifer Garner and Toni Collette have a similar effect!
