She has one of the most fabulous figures in Hollywood, but even Kate Winslet gets a little help looking slim sometimes. The star once again turned to Stella McCartney on Sunday, wearing a red-and-black version of the designer’s “miracle” dress (also known as the “Octavia,” $1595) to the Carnage premiere in Paris. The stretch cotton sheath is so nicknamed because its black side panels seriously flatter the figure.
Winslet has always been a fan of McCartney’s designs, wearing a sexy cut-out LBD to the Mildred Pierce premiere in March. But considering we rarely see her repeating dresses, it was surprising to see her in another of McCartney’s “miracle” dresses after wearing the original “Octavia” to the Venice Film Festival in September.
Liv Tyler and Lala Vazquez are also fans of the sheath, and Penélope Cruz wore a similar style to the Cannes Film Festival in May. The dresses are so popular, in fact, that knock-offs have popped up everywhere from ASOS.com to Topshop. “Usually when someone wears a dress no one else wants to wear it,” PEOPLE StyleWatch editor Kate Dimmock tells GMA. “This time around, people are willing to go there, because it’s that irresistible.”
