Academy Award-Winning actress Octavia Spencer recently attended amfAR’s 3rd Annual Inspiration Gala at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California. Octavia walked the red carpet in a custom-made black and beige embroidered peplum cocktail dress by Tadashi Shoji, classic black peep-toe pumps, and an adorable little black chain-strap purse. It’s no surprise that Tadashi is a fave designer of hers–the fit and styles are beyond elegant.

The peplum trend is another one of those timeless garments (cue 80’s music) with a flatter-anyone appeal that revisits everyone’s wish list each season. They are a great choice for those of us wanting to conceal, or balance out, a big booty or wide hips. The best part about peplum? They accentuate the tiniest part of any woman– her waist. Perfect for us curvy girls.

Here’s a few styles I found and how you can rework the peplum trend.
