Celebs just can’t get enough of those peplum dresses! We spotted them all over the Movie Awards red carpet this weekend, and yesterday Lady Gaga arrived in New Zealand wearing a little peplum number of her own. She sported a tangerine Antonio Berardi fall 2012 frock paired with white Christian Louboutin platforms pumps, white cat-eye sunglasses, and lace gloves. To put it gently, we went CUH-RAZY over this look when we first saw it. I mean, how cute and summery is this entire ensemble? Thanks to Gaga and the current peplum craze, we decided to scour the web for the best bright peplum minidresses that you can cop right this second. Forever 21 offers a super inexpensive one-shoulder magenta frock that costs under $25 bucks! If you want to shine like Mother Monster, go for ModCloth’s bright yellow strapless peplum number with a bow in the front, which totally screams beachy ’80s prom queen. Hot! For a bold but more demure option, Alice + Olivia makes a cobalt cap-sleeve dress that totally hugs your curves in all the right places.
Bright peplum dresses!

For a peplum piece that hits a little lower on the leg, opt for ASOS’ below-the-knee number in a smooth orange color. If the touch of ruffle around the waist STILL isn’t girly enough, up the cuteness factor by swiping up Topshop’s pretty purple peplum dress with a cut-out heart in the back. Awwwww! Last, but certainly NOT least, is this show-stopping red hot bandeau ASOS minidress that’ll be the center of attention no matter WHERE you turn up. We promise.
