Mumbai: The dress that has had Hollywood stars and models in thrall for years has found fans in our country. In the early 1990s, French designer Herve Leger brought back the body-con look with Lycra and spandex-rich bands that curved around the female form to give it that coveted hour-glass shape. Since then, he has created innumerable variations of the bandage dress, which doesn’t require accessories — just the right attitude.
From star wives Gauri Khan and Suzanne Roshan and socialites Queenie Singh, Parmeshwar Godrej, Natasha Poonawala and Avanti Birla to red carpet scene stealers Katrina Kaif, Shilpa Shetty and Priyanka Chopra, everyone can be found wrapped in this miracle of elasticity.
