Perrie Edwards causes confusion amongst fans after sharing a snap in a massive frock

We’re all desperate to know when Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik will tie the knot and the excitement sometimes gets a bit too much for the couple’s fans.

Little Mix singer Perrie, 21, sent her followers into overdrive late on Monday night when she posed for a photo in a huge frock which looked very much like a wedding dress – eek!

The black-and-white picture shows Perrie from the neck down modelling the extravagant gown with her hands on her hips. Featuring a fitted bodice and massive puffy skirt, Perrie‘s dress is certainly fit for a special occasion…

Fans soon started questioning whether Zayn‘s fiancée was actually wearing the frock she’ll marry her man in, with one excitedly commenting: ‘OMG WEDDING DRESS OF ZERRIE?!!!’

Another wrote: ‘It seems like a wedding dress’

Sadly Perrie‘s caption for the photo dashed her followers’ hopes as it turned out to be the outfit she’d worn to her prom.

‘Just put my old prom dress on… I feel like a princess right now! 🙈,’ the Little Mixer explained.

Many of her fans are still hopeful that there’s a link between this frock and Perrie’s future wedding attire though.

‘Trying on prom dress, seeking for inspiration of how a wedding dress should look like,’ one suggested, whilst another added: ‘prom dress or wedding dress ..’

Perrie has been engaged to former One Direction star Zayn, 22, since August 2013 but it’s unclear when they’ll actually get hitched.

Since he quit 1D back in March Zayn has been spending lots of time with his wife-to-be and there was even speculation that they’d got married in secret when they holidayed abroad in April.

But Perrie has dismissed rumours that the wedding is imminent as she’s got a lot on at the moment. Little Mix are back with their new single Black Magic and they’ve got another album in the pipeline too.

‘I don’t know when the wedding will be,’ she tells The Sun. ‘We’re still planning it but I’m so busy with Little Mix now Black Magic is coming out.

‘Me and Zayn want it to be perfect, so as soon as I have a bit of time we’ll plan it. I doubt it will be this summer – but I’ll let you know!’

PLEASE give us a date asap, Perrie!
