Ladies In Red

Red dresses have always been a part of fashion and red carpets but we’ve been seeing them more frequently throughout the summer. Whether our favorite fashionistas are sporting shorter hemlines or long trains – each looks gorgeous and sexy – in their own way. We’ve already seen Jessica Alba in a TDF (to die for) dazzling Valentino gown while running around France. Let’s see what other celebrities are seeing red…

Claire Danes, also clad in a Valentino frock, is a long way from when we first met her on MTV’s My So Called Life. The ruffles and long sleeves are a perfection pairing with the short hemline. Claire’s Nude t-straps are my favorite color choice for short red dresses. They lengthen her legs and the stud embellishments add a bit of edginess to the ruffled dress. (Check out that clutch she’s carrying – dying!) To be honest, I normally don’t turn to Angelina for the newest trends. And while she always looks stunning on the red carpet she tends to stick to basic and darker colors. I mean no one can wear leather like Ange. But she really stunned me here with her floor length Atelier Versace gown during her overseas Salt tour. Can you say Va Va Voom? Stepping out of her color comfort zone she totally kills it in this lipstick red. Nevertheless Angelina still rocks her trademark “Vixen” look – tousled hair and MAJOR red lips.

I’d never thought I would love a head to toe Red look – but Kate Bosworth changed my mind the second I saw this photo of her at a dinner last week. Red Dress, Red Heels, Red Jacket, Red Lips. What more do you need? Absolutely Nothing…. I love that she kept her makeup and hair simple and just added a small gold necklace. Perfection! Resident vampire cutie Ashley Greene is quickly climbing my favored list of fashion risk takers. She’s never afraid to wear classic pieces or go fashion forward like she did with this Raven Kauffman Couture dress. Usually I am not a fan of black shoes with red dresses – but she makes it work here. The dress’ lines are clean, simple, understated but hot! I love that it has a higher neck yet she’s showing some skin by baring shoulders and leg - Proof that you don’t have to go mega short to be sexy.

Last but not least – the beautiful Jessica Biel. For a girl who said sometimes she “can’t be bothered by fashion” she certainly dominates both red carpets and the streets with her flawless pairings. (It probably helps that her body is ridiculous too!) At the London A Team premiere She takes a cue from Kate paring her gorgeous crimson gown with red shoes. But the black waistband shows off her amazing shape and gives a little pop to dress. And of course – every girl knows diamonds always look good with red.

I don’t know about you – but these ladies are inspiring me right this very moment! I have a fun dinner tonight and I haven’t broken out my awesome Zac Posen red dress which you can now purchase for a STEAL… perhaps tonight will be the night!
