Want to know how to get dressed in under 5 minutes? Talk a cue from Jennifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado who rely on a forties-style fitted dress.
Lopez proves that one of these classic shifts works in Miami where she wore hers, while the pale grey Elie Saab dress (from his Fall 2009 ready-to-wear line) singer Furtado wore to the designer's Spring show in Paris screams "chic" in any country.
Ladies, if you don't have one of these dresses already in your closet, run out and get one fast since they magically create curves where none exist or show off an envious hour-glass figure, all while giving off a demure, sophisticated vibe.
If color's your thing, then go for a bold shade, and the effect is still the same. Like I said, magic.
