It's a cinch!

You know that saying about how you can never be too thin, too rich, or too famous? Celebs do. It's the only reason we can think of why the famous back home (and abroad) happily wiggled into 'The Miracle Dress', and continue to make obscene amounts of money! The dual-toned colour block dress with vertical patches that run on either side is a great way to make the waist appear narrower. Here's how to wear it

Nargis Fakhri
Claim to fame:  Made her Bollywood debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor

Last heard saying: 'I don't really think you can compare any two people.'
While the rest of the suddenly slim brigade stuck to two shades, Bollywood newbie Nargis Fakhri went for the ensemble with more colours. The designer uses two colours in the body-hugging dress and adds a third and fourth to mimic a corset.

Kate Winslet
Claim to fame:  Award-winning actress

Last heard saying:'I don't have much time for pedicures.'
Kate was among the first celebs to fall for 'The Miracle Dress'. She first wore the dress in September, last year, to the Venice Film Festival. The Stella McCartney dress worked wonders on the Oscar award-winning actress, who is known for her curves. She liked it so much that she wore it again, two months later (below).

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Claim to fame: Actress and Victoria's Secret model

Last heard saying: 'I think having a quirk shows your true identity.'
Recently under a lot of flak for getting 'too thin', this Victoria's Angel donned the illusion dress in November, last year. Wonder why someone so skinny needs to wear the dress? Huntington-Whiteley proves the multi-utility of the dress: It can make curvy women look slim and skinny women curvy!
It's an illusion, see!

Sonam Kapoor
Claim to fame: Actress and style diva

Last heard saying: 'I am not thin. I have a big bum, big arms, I have cellulite.'
Digital Prints? Check. Paillette dresses? Check. Fur embellishments? Check. Dual-toned dresses? Sonam leaves no trend unturned. The style queen of Bollywood wore the miracle number to a house-warming party of Farah Khan, last month. At a movie promotion, she mixed the trend with a diagonal-striped skirt, which slimmed her down further.

Neha Dhupia
Claim to fame: Former beauty queen, known for her choice of off-beat roles

Last heard saying: 'A lot of hard work has gone into revamping the image of a sex symbol.'
Seen here with Shekhar of Vishal-Shekhar fame, Neha sticks to classic colours and adds a little 'pop' to her look with red lipstick. This trend works well as a straight-fit kurta over a churidhar as well. Watch at least three kilos just vanish!
