Amber Riley of Glee is our clothing inspiration today

by on Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

I’ve had the Amber Riley (Glee) picture from Emmy Magazine saved on this computer for weeks now, because I HAD to make a post about it. It’s a great dress in general, but I think that it raises an interesting point about how horizontal panels (not necessary stripes) can be flattering to a figure. And really, vertical stripes and panels are not always flattering.

Well, it turns out I’ve found the actual dress she wore, although only on eBay. (22w ADRIANNA PAPELL Black Banded Inset Lace Dress NWT.) All  Adrianna Papell dresses are gorgeous, and she makes a lot of tiered dresses.  (As well as plus size dresses.) Me likey.

And why does it work? The larger panel sections that fall at your waist nip in the area, creating a great visual effect for slimming and making you appear thinner.

If you are too nervous to try a horiztonal stripe, vertical will always work. Here’s an exceptionally flattering dress:

This black lace dress is under $10.
