We love a good optical illusion as much as the next magician, especially when there’s a dress involved. So, to cast our eyes on a super-curvaceous Kate Winslet in this Stella McCartney dress was a fashion treat and a half.

The actress attended the Venice Film Festival last week working this sculpting-shaping-miracle-making dress with peep-toe black court shoes.

Forget magic pants and uncomfortable body sculpting underwear to create curves in the right places – Stella McCartney’s clever colour panelling on this pencil dress deceptively knocks inches off Kate’s waist (and shifts her chest up a notch), taking body-con to a whole other level.

By keeping her hair simple with a chic chignon and minimal jewellery, the actress lets that dress work its magic in front of the cameras.

So, what do you think? Is the optical illusion genius, or is Kate just delusional?
