Paz Vega doesn’t seem to be one of those celebs who desires to be on the cover of every tabloid magazine or discussed on every entertainment news show. But when the leading lady shows up at an event, she is magnetic –drawing gasps, stares and, of course, camera lenses from every direction. She is, simply put, a show-stopper.
This particular look is drop-dead gorgeous.
From the tousled updo to the overemphasized strapless sweetheart neckline to the mermaid silhouette to the lustrous fabric – she nails every detail.
The most dramatic element of this movie star ensemble – the overlay of peplum. Perfection.
Not walking down the red carpet anytime soon yourself?
No worries. Peplum, which is gaining momentum as the accent detail of the moment, is easily translated to daytime, dinner, cocktail party and club looks.

Even if you aren’t curvy, the sweetheart neckline and tulip-cut peplum on this Laundry by Shelli Segal dress for $141 will create the illusion of a perfect hourglass. This dress adds just enough spice to a hot dinner date.

FOR THE CLUB
