There's a reason we haven't seen the last of the fit-and-flare silhouette — the feminine dress that's been a classic since the '50s is still one of the most flattering shapes we have to choose from. And, thanks to Fall '12 runways and the latest batch of celebrity style setters, we have quite a lot of inspiration — and a case for picking up a fit-and-flare of your own (if you don't already have one). With appearances from the likes of Zoe Saldana and Anna Kendrick — who both opted for the feminine silhouette in their respective looks at the Independent Spirit Awards nominations — or Ashley Madekwe, in a retro-glam inspired LBD, it's easy to see why we're loving the style. In case you need some convincing, we've culled something of a celebrity lookbook to inspire your own fit-and-flare search. Just a little glam, always perfectly feminine, and all-occasion appropriate, click on to see and shop a fit-and-flare dress for your nonstop holiday party circuit.
