Dear Stylemma, I love the blush-coloured halter-neck fitted dress Katherine Jenkins wore recently, which was from Victoria Beckham’s spring/summer 2011 collection.

I obviously can’t afford the hefty price tag of a VB original, but was wondering if there was something similar on the high street? I have a couple of events to attend this summer that I know it would be perfect for.

There’s no denying that Vicky B makes incredible dresses. On the high street there are plenty of dresses similar to the one Katherine Jenkins donned for the Royal Albert Hall’s annual gala. Asos does a great range inspired by VB’s collections; the Tailored Square Neck Seamed Ponti Pencil Dress, €59.04, in squirrel, a nude shade, has the same contoured panelling and fitted skirt. It’s not a halter neck, but the silhouette is very Posh, see www.asos.com. Karen Millen’s Signature Satin Dress in pale rose, €215, has structured panelling, a flattering halter-neck and is perfect wedding attire. American Apparel has a great range of simple, block-colour dresses. Their form-fitting Cross Back Knit Dress in dark nude, €75, ends just below the knee; just add patent platform heels and gold accessories.
