We’ll have what she’s having! Heavens knows what’s happened since Katy Perry split from L.A.’s busiest lothario John Mayer, but we’ve never seen the California Girl looking so good. One outfit in particular has us reaching for our wallets to spend a little spring-dressing cash: the Bottega Veneta floral tea-dress and Bionda Castana lace-up booties.

Bottega’s floral fancies – designed for spring summer 2013 by Thomas Maier – are no ordinary tea-dresses. Look closely and you’ll see much more than just a pretty print – there’s major workmanship going into the luxury brand’s selection of spring frocks. Python trims, collaged fabrics, exquisitely subtle studding, couture-worthy pin tucks and bodice-detailing to make the curve-enhancing perfect cut all justify the £3K+ price tag.

1940s style make a small appearance for this season, but with a Hitchcock heroin look strongly trending for autumn/winter it’d be no mistake to fill up on this wardrobe classic. And they’re just as flattering for curves as they can be for waifs.

Of course, Veneta’s glorious options may not suit all budgets, so we’ve scoured the market to bring you the best 12 available online right now. Scroll through the gallery to choose your favourite.
