Emma Stone and Charlize Theron Pick Up A Peplum For 2012 MTV Movie Awards

06 June 2012 by

We've been rating peplums as hot hot hot ever since they first made a comeback on the catwalk several seasons ago and whilst they have been massive on the high street, the A-list crowd have been a bit slow on the uptake. But this weekend, at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards in LA, it was the sartorial choice du jour.

With Emma Stone, Charlize Theron, Emma Watson AND Shailene Woodley snapped on the red carpet wearing a peplum variaton, these gorgeous ladies prove just how versatile this trend can be. From Miss Watson's surfer girl-inspired Brood dress to Shailene's sexy Stella McCartney mannish jumpsuit, picking a peplum - and finding a shape to suit your figure - is simple.

To help you along, we've picked some of our favourite peplum buys so you can get the look too. From a flirty floral dress to a subtle navy top, add these pieces to your wardrobe, team with retro accessories and get your fun summer style sorted.
