Choose a Column Gown Like Queen Latifah
Women are always told to accentuate the waist, but if you don’t have a defined waist to begin with and your shoulders are broad, try out a column silhouette with details at the top, instead. “This strategy makes Queen Latifah look even more statuesque than she already is—and makes her upper carriage appear more delicate,” says Monahan.
CURVY STYLE TIP: When a column dress fits well (no pulling or sagging), it’s incredibly elegant and slimming. Add a fun color or detail and you’ll look like Hollywood royalty.
