Curve Huggers, Vogue China Ed and New Illustration

If you've got it, and you wanna flaunt it, then go all out in a figure-hugging freakum dress.

Form-fitting dresses were first popularized on the runway by 'The King of Cling' Azzedine Alaia who introduced his Lycra creations during the late 1980s and later by Herve Leger whose signature 'bandage' dresses are highly sought after to this day.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford was one of the first celebrities to don one of Herve Leger's provocative bandage dresses, as seen in the photo below.

Many Spring 2009 collections from designers such as Narciso Rodriguez, Alexander Wang, Balmain as well as Herve Leger featured body con dresses in styles ranging from elegant to sexy to edgy.

90210 stars Annalynne McCord and Jessica Stroup worked the 2009 People's Choice Awards red carpet in sexy Guess by Marciano and Herve Leger dresses, respectively.

Kate Winslet looked incredible in a Balmain Spring 2009 dress at the L.A premiere of Revolutionary Road.

While not necessarily the most appropriate choice for an event like the Critic's Choice Awards, there's no denying that Amanda Bynes looked fantastic in her hot pink Herve Leger dress.

Spring is quickly approaching and with it comes many beautiful Spring-inspired magazine photo spreads. I gotta say, my heart skipped a few beats when I came across this stunning editorial from the February 2009 issue of Vogue China. The clothes, the hair, the makeup, the model...fresh and gorgeous. Just the way a Spring editorial should be!
