In February we swooned over Zac Posen's Autumn / Winter 2012 collection, a glamorous show full of red carpet gowns and oriental-inspired cocktail dresses. This is a man who knows how to dress women to make the most of their fabulous curves, and the peplum detail knee-length shift worn by Coco Rocha was the perfect example of this.

The dress is now available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman, for $2,990.

If you don't have the cash to splash on the real thing, you'll be glad to know there are some high street alternatives starting to make it onto the rails. Perhaps the best so far is from Debut at Debenhams, a red jaquard peplum shift with a similar skirt, different neckline and less floral print. At £80, it costs less than 5% of the real deal, and while you can't be guaranteed the same quality with a department store find, you can at least pay your rent!
