Since it made its debut as Carrie Bradshaw's wedding gown in the big-screen version of Sex and the City, Vivienne Westwood's Lily dress has been making appearances on red carpets and on discount retailers' racks across the country.

The New York Daily News reports that celebrities such as Anne Hathaway, Emma Thompson, Sandra Bullock and Leona Lewis are fans of the design due to its slimming qualities. Women of any shape may be flattered by the dress due to its structured corset and sweetheart bust line.

"The top is [Westwood's] signature detail," a brand representative told the news source.

While all versions of the dress include this feature, "the silhouettes can be quite different," the spokesperson added.

"There's a flute dress or a frilly '50s-inspired A-line."

While a shortened, non-bridal version of the gown will put fashion lovers out nearly $10,000, affordable retailers like Top Shop and Forever 21 have created dresses that follow the corset-sweetheart trend inspired by the Westwood original.

The designer has also created a shorter design called the Carrie, which can be used as a cocktail or wedding dress, according to the brand's website.
