Curvalicious: The Only Way Is Essex star Frankie Essex wears a white, mocha and black optical illusion La Boutique dress in London last night

The stars of The Only Way Is Essex like to describe the home county as England's version of Hollywood.

So its no surprise some of the show's ladies look to Tinseltown's finest when it comes to fashion inspiration.

Out clubbing in London's West End last night, Frankie Essex stepped out in a black, white and beige optical illusion dress, which looked remarkably similar to one worn by Kate Winslet last year.

The beige panelling gave the impression of having Essex having an even smaller waist and elongated her body.

She teamed the £75 dress, from local Essex store La Boutique, with a pair of beige Christian Louboutin platform heels and a quilted Chanel bag.

Winslet was a huge fan of Stella McCartney's £885 Octavia Stretch Dress and wore two in different colours.

She first debuted the black and white one at the Venice Film Festival last September, before wearing a red version at the Paris première of Carnage.

The black and white one has also been spotted of Latin singer Gloria Estefan and Zach Braff's model girlfriend Taylor Bagley last week.

Frankie wore the outfit for a girls' night out with TOWIE co-star Lauren Goodger.

Girls' night out: Essex started off her evening at the May Fair Hotel with TOWIE co-star Lauren Goodger

She had clearly put a lot of time and effort after earlier going to Goodger's Essex salon Lauren's Way for a spray tan and blow dry.

She tweeted: 'All dollied up with my @LaurenGoodger dinner and cocktails tonight tonight.'

The women started off for dinner and drinks at the May Fair Hotel, before picking up two male acquaintances and moving on to nearby Aura for their 'Celebrity Wednesday' club night.

The usual crowd: Topshop heiress Chloe Green and student George Lineker also attended

Friends in high places: Goodger tweeted a photo of herself with Tulisa inside the club

Also in attendance at the club was X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, socialite Chloe Green and student George Lineker.

Goodger, who was wearing a black CelebBoutique Bey dress, was in high spirits after posing for her first underwear photoshoot earlier that day.

She tweeted: 'Just done an amazing shoot for @dailystar first underware (sic) shoot I've done with 2 male hunks in between, can't complain hey! Comes out Monday.'
