The magic dress

Every girl needs one. Mine is a long-sleeved, fitted dress with scooped front and back, fitted waist and A-line skirt from ASOS. I have it in mustard and red, and wish I'd bought three of each. 
Kate Winslet's is by Stella McCartney. 
Over the past few years, Kate has blasted her way onto the scene as some kind of mix of (and I hate to generalise, but I will) Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston. Emerging from her defining role as the pampered rich girl Rose Dewitt Bukater in Titanic, tackling more challenging roles such as Sarah in Little Children and Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and putting herself firmly back in the spotlight with her double-whammy of Oscar-nominated films at the award season in 2009, while showing off an enviable body and, in the wake of her hit of the mythical 'Best Actress Curse', a hot younger man. As well as being one of the most talented actresses of her generation, and one of our most beloved exports, she also, famously and hilariously, completely forgot Angelina Jolie's name during an acceptance speech. 
All these things make her worthy of idolising. And her dress sense ain't bad, either. In the manner of Gwyneth with that minidress for the Iron Man promo circuit, Kate is a master of the statement look on the red carpet. And this dress is a demonstration of her impeccable style - simple, elegant, bombshell and flattering with a capital F. Personally, I'm loving the white. And ignoring the horrible haters in the comments section of the site I pulled these images from.
