Although she often likes to break the style rules, Amanda Holden is well-known for her on-trend fashion sense.

The Britain's Got Talent judge isn't shy about picking more daring numbers - but also nails more elegant and ethereal looks too.

And recently, the 47-year-old caught the attention of fashion fans everywhere, when she wore a gorgeous blush-pink dress from one of our favourite retailers, Marks & Spencer.

The star posed on her Instagram in the stunning calf-length number, showing off its pretty ruffle cuff sleeves and V-neck detail.

Amanda's post accumulated over 22,000 likes, with fans flocking to the photo to comment on how much they loved the dress.

One wrote, 'That dress is beautiful 😍', while another user agreed, 'Pink suits you very well 😍 love this outfit and look so much!'.

And while Amanda's matching pink Louboutin heels are likely well out of our price range, the star's M&S pick is actually very affordable.

The bodycon midi dress is on sale for £69, which we reckon is a pretty reasonable price, given how timeless and classic a piece it is.

The dress would work briliantly for any upcoming summer weddings you have, given its elegant simplicity.

Pair it with a matching fascinator and clutch, and you've got yourself a winning wedding outfit.

However, the Amanda Holden Marks & Spencer dress has proven so popular, that it's actually sold out online in all sizes. Luckily, the outfit is however still in stock in some M&S stores around the UK - although stock is selling fast, so you'll need to be quick.

In the meantime, there are plenty of equally lovely alternatives to Amanda's dress available on the high-street.

This stylish option from the Pretty Dress Company is perhaps the best match for the M&S midi dress, with a similar structured design, longer sleeves and gorgeous blush-pink colour.

It's on sale for £125 and is currently available in all sizes. We think it's a brilliant alternative to Amanda's dress.

But if you fancy a shorter-sleeved version of Amanda's dress (ideal for this current heatwave), this pick from Coast is undeniably a good option.

At £99, it's a little on the pricier side, but is both edgy and sophisticated with the gorgeous ruffle detail.

This ruffle dress from Warehouse, available in the same blush-pink as Amanda's, is also a brilliant option if you're looking for a wedding guest outfit.

Loved by Lorraine Kelly, the floaty gown is also now available in the sale, reduced to £40 from £65. Do you need another reason?
