St Trinian’s and Quantum of Solace actress, 27 year old Gemma Arterton, could certainly teach us a thing or two about dressing to flatter our figure. Arriving at The Lancome Show party during Paris Fashion Week, she wore a Lanvin asymmetric, black, one-shoulder dress that showcased her infamous curves. The figure-hugging material of the dress was softened by its ruched structure, and the diving, one-shoulder neckline often favoured by Gemma was beautifully balanced by the long sleeve and knee-length hem.

Asymmetrical designs are the new black this AW13. This season, the fashion houses of Prada and Simone Rocha have both aligned themselves with the designers at Lanvin and graduated from the high school tendency to have all pieces centred and symmetrical, adding fresh dimensions and perspectives to their collections. Wearing this black, one-shoulder dress by Lanvin, Gemma illustrates how this uneven cut is ideal for flattering the curvier figure.

Work the asymmetric trend like Gemma with our striking, black, one-shoulder dress. Opting for this soft jersey material with side fringing and a large angel wing sleeve will complement your curves, giving you a feminine and exotic silhouette. Add a pair of glittering, gold, peep-toe court shoes, a black statement purse and a classic, luxe, gold bracelet to ensure that you are Fashion Week fabulous, just like Gemma!
