Feeling brazen: Carol Vorderman's optical illusion dress looks like she accidentally forgot to cover up her top half
She hardly needs an optical illusion dress to accentuate her curves.
But Carol Vorderman added some va-va-voom to her already voluptuous figure in Stella McCartney's celebrity must-have creation.
Last night, the Loose Women host was seen leaving Langan's Brasserie in Piccadilly, central London, looking every inch the shapely beauty.
However, as the nude tone of the frock, which dominated the majority of the gown, bled into the upper white bodice - it made Carol appear topless.
From afar, the chest area appeared to be an exposed vest or underwear garment lurking beneath the beige below-the-knee dress.
Yet the view from the back, albeit covered by a black shrug, clearly showed that the number was just a deceptive design on the front.
Carol's waist looked smaller than ever as black panels on either side of the outfit created an impression that her silhouette was tinier than it actually is.

The dress is popular with everyone from reality stars to the A-list, with the likes of Frankie Essex, Kim Kardashian and Kate Winslet stepping out in it.
Titanic star Kate looked striking in the monochrome frock while attending the premiere of Mildred Pierce at the Venice Film Festival last September.
Meanwhile, Kim followed in her footsteps, wearing a near-identical number at Perez Hilton's Mad Hatter Tea Party Celebration last weekend.

The Mayfair eaterie is known for live music over the weekend, with Carol tweeting about the evening's entertainment.
The former Countdown star wrote: 'The sax is playing ..... mellow.....Mister Beaujangles.....happy happy days X
Great band tonight....... Love a bit of live music x'
However, what Carol was actually referring to was the song Mr Bojangles - by American country music artist Jerry Jeff Walker.
