NYFW Spring 2012 Trend Alert: Illusion Dresses (AKA The Miracle Dress)

Looks from Monique Lhuillier’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection

This year at New York Fashion Week, the “it” body con dress of the season is no longer the bandage dress, but rather the “illusion dress,” a form-fitting dress composed of color-blocked panels that emphasize a woman’s hourglass shape. And if Monique Lhuillier, whose S/S 2012 collection is pictured above, can make 90 pound models seem curvaceous, we’re officially on board.

But Lhuillier is not the only one to jump on the illusion bandwagon. Last week, The Daily Mail featured an article about “optical illusion dressing,” saying celebrities from Kate Winslet to Gwyneth Paltrow and designers from Stella McCartney to Alexander McQueen have all embraced the illusion trend. In fact, this universally flattering look has begun to pop up in so many places, it makes us question, is this the demise of man-repelling fashion?
