If you want to know the secret to many gorgeous Hollywood bodies look no further then Max Azria.  At the opening of Live! On Sunset, a chic new store in West Hollywood, the designer behind the Herve Leger “bandage dress” displayed his spring collection and received praise from his famous fans. “I think I’m a little bit in love with Max just as a person,” said co-host Hilary Duff, “but he makes every girl’s body look insane and I love that!”  Sophia Bush counts Azria’s “amazing European loving sensibility” as his design gift and said, “he wants us all to feel embraced and loved…a more beautiful version of ourselves.” The real beauty of the curve hugging “bandage dress” is its flattering silhouette for all sizes. “I love the shape that they give. They’re not just for like stick thin people,” said Leona Lewis.  Taraji P. Henson summed up the vast appeal by tellling PEOPLE.com, “The best way I can put it is that it’s like a Spanx in a dress.  You don’t have to wear Spanx (because) it sucks you up and holds you in in all the right places.  That’s the perfect dress!” For Bush, Herve Leger also evoked nostalgic feelings, “I think the first time I ever wore Herve to an event was the Teen Choice Awards a couple years ago.  I was in this amazing dress and it was a great night for me. I got three surfboards to take home.  It was a very big memorable evening both fashion-wise and professionally.” — Michelle Ward
