Katie Piper's fans go wild for her daring thigh-split floral dress

The French Connection frock is still available!

Katie Piper just jumped to the forefront of our fashion radar after rocking a daring floral-print dress – and she totally worked it!

The TV star sent her fans into a frenzy after she posted a gorgeous photo of herself on Instagram, wearing the figure-flattering 'Cersier Verona Crepe Smock Back' dress from French Connection.

Katie Piper looked gorgeous in her Frech Connection dress

The beautiful fit-and-flare frock comes in a pretty blue and black colourway and features a flattering sweetheart neckline, on-trend puff sleeves and a cheeky thigh-split that Katie makes look so elegant. It's currently available in sizes 8 – 16 but we predict this will be a sell-out.

Like Katie, you can team the dress with a pair of heels – she wore a classic pair of Gianvito Rossi's luxe suede courts – or trainers for a pared back look.

Retailing for £110, this dress is an essential staple for every woman's wardrobe and isn't typecast to just one season. The darker colours also make it perfect to wear on colder days with a luxe oversized cardi.

Needless to say, Katie received a swarm of compliments, with her fans desperate to get their hands on the dress for themselves. One follower wrote: "You look beautiful. Please let me know where the dress from."

A second wrote: "You look stunning. Where's the dress from?" A third added: "You are so gorgeous and this dress is stunning on you." And another added: "Looks great on you."

Katie often works with celebrity stylist James Yardley, who regularly styles the likes of Tess Daly and Kelly Brook – who was also spotted out in a bargain Topshop floral dress this week.

Kelly's 'Fresh Floral Print' midi dress is just £20 in the sale and features long sleeves with open back detailing, a cinched waist and a thigh-high split. Her particular dress comes with splashes of yellow and is selling fast, but it's also available in blue and green.
