When peplum emerged on red carpet regulars like Emma Stone and Kim Kardashian in spring, I figured it was one of those cute flash trends with no lasting power in the fashion scene. However, with fashion week weeks behind us and celebrity stylists gearing up for fall 2012 (September is only 2 months away!) peplum is starting to shape into one of fall’s most prominent silhouettes.

Here, Zoe Saldana and Coco Rocha demonstrate how fun peplum can be while Dianna Agron and Blake Lively take the trend more seriously.

What do you think? Is peplum in your radar? VOTE after the jump!

Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung
Look relaxed yet incredibly polished with a peplum top, sweeter-than candy belt and silk shorts to summer picnics and birthday parties.

Coco Rocha in Jason Wu
Pretty in pink is the way to go during both lunch with your best girlfriends and date night with a significant other.

Dianna Agron in Stella McCartney
Keep everything simple and let your bodycon knee-grazing peplum do all the talking at meetings and after-work drinks.

Blake Lively in Jason Wu
Play dress with pretty but chunky jewelry and printed stilettos with your sparkly peplum for holiday events and dinner parties.
