Get the Posh look for less! Gok Wan unveils new collection for Sainsbury's… and doesn't it look familiar
If you fancied one of Victoria Beckham's figure-hugging peplum dresses – seen on the likes of Elle Macpherson and Leighton Meester – but couldn't afford 2,095 price tag, then Gok Wan has come to the rescue.
In a bid to make high fashion accessible to the nation, the stylist-turned-fashion designer has unveiled yet another purse-friendly collection ranging from just 20.00 to 45.00.
The new spring range features a number of flattering designs, including one 60 ensemble that bares an uncanny resemblance to the popular dress launched by Victoria Beckham in 2009.

The 1940s-inspired peplum top, 30, and pencil skirt, 30 from Gok is designed to enhance curves, and plays on one of the biggest trends this season.
Cigarette pants and cropped jackets also feature in the 18-piece capsule collection which marks his third collaboration with the Sainsbury's TU label.
The 37-year-old said: 'This fresh and
sophisticated new collection will help women look amazing and feel their
most confident this spring.
