This dress almost defies description. It’s space age meets corrugated iron. The issue I have with it – I understand it’s a costume for a performance, not something she’s likely to wear walking down the street – but it’s the fact that her black bike shorts appear to be busting out of the sides of the ‘dress’.
Oh my, oh my, oh my…
Anne Hathaway’s dress has some diverging diagonal lines that make her hips look wide – it you want to up your curve quotient, go for this, but if you don’t as you feel your hips are wide enough already.
This is image consulting 101 – never put a horizontal line across a wide point, unless you want it to look wider. Now if Beyonce’s booty is her widest point, why would she put a glittery, spangly, sequined wide horiztonal band across it to draw attention to it?
How can she get something so basic so wrong?
Beyonce is wearing a trapeze dress which does nothing for her figure – she has a gorgeous small waist and curvy body, yet the dress is disguising her waist and ending right at the widest part of her thighs, which is making them look bigger, and her whole body look much boxier. This style of dress is really only suited to those with an I shape (boyish) body, which can take the shape and length, best avoided by most curvier women.
Rachel Bilson is wearing a pair of jeans with whiskering at the crotch, which when she’s placed next to a group of ultra thin models, is making her look very curvy in the hips.
If you’d like to make your hips look slimmer, avoid this kind of detailing on jeans. Since a fair proportion of women have issues with their hips, I don’t understand why jeans designers keep adding it to their denim ranges as it would cost them extra in production.

Heidi Klum’s shorts are just too short here – when trying to decide how long you should wear them, the rule is to never put a horiztonal line on your widest point – and as you can see, these shorts end right at the widest part of Heidi’s thighs. A couple of inches longer and she could have carried them off better, but this draws attention and it’s not flattering.
In direct contrast to the great dress that Heidi Klum wore to the Emmy’s, this dress worn by Kate Walsh has dominant horizontal lines, in shiny beading, which draws a big nasty line around her hips, and makes her look way curvier than she really is. Unless you have a boyish shape, I’d avoid wearing a dress like this.
