What Star Body Shape Are You?

28Jun10

Wish you had the body of a star? Well, apparently, even they have a hard time in the dressing room. Fashion designer Bradley Bayou — whose new ready-to-wear collection airs on QVC on June 25 at 4 p.m. EST — reveals to Marie Claire his trademark tricks for flattering some of Hollywood’s most famous figures and how you can rock their looks.

Queen Latifah
Her Look: The rapper-turned-Oscar nominee is what Bayou describes as a “tall, full rectangle.” Her form, with little waistline definition, can appear boxy, so he uses “soft fabrics and corsets.” He also applies “design elements that release at her hip to give her some extra curves.”
Your Look: Try wide V-necks or off-the-shoulder dresses. This, Bayou says, “elongates your shoulder line and when used in combination with a corset, will pull in your waist and make your torso appear smaller.” Also, show off your favorite features. If you love your legs, a simple slit can do the trick.

Anne Hathaway
Her Look: Also a rectangle, the actress has broad, pronounced shoulders and slightly curvy hips. “The more she accentuates her shoulders and hips, the smaller her waist will appear,” Bayou says. “Because she’s tall and slender, the proportional differences in her body are small, so she doesn’t have to do much to create that balance.”
Your Look: If your shape is similar to Anne’s, Bayou assures you it’s “very easy to dress” yourself. Always wear looks that pull in at your waist and release at your hip. A tuxedo jacket with a strong shoulder would work, as would an A-line skirt.
