When Kate Winslet turned up to the premiere of her new film The Reader last week looking drop dead gorgeous in a figure-hugging number, the question on every woman's lips was: 'Where can I get that dress?'. The voluptuous Titanic star was a vision in a charcoal grey bandage dress - the must-have item which tops every girl's wish list for the party season it seems.

Kate's 1,300 Herve Ledger version, which has also been favoured by Cheryl Cole, Kelly Brook and Rachel Weisz, has been flying off the shelves. And the demand for the dress is so high it has led to a run of similar styles on the High Street at stores such as Topshop and French Connection.

The appeal of the style, which was popular in the Eighties and has been revamped for 2008, is that you don't need to be model thin to wear it. The tight layers of elasticated fabric are not just body hugging, but also body shaping cinching in the waist, lifting the bosom and straightening the back to give its wearer instant red carpet posture.
