How To Wear A Red Dress
Beyonce in a firecracker red body hugging number in NYC. (With red shoes, too!) Perfect for her new fragrance press tour.
I love, love, LOVE a red dress. I wore a red evening gown when I won Miss Liberia USA and so did two other contestants. LOL. Here’s the thing though, you have to aware of the shade, material and silhouette. A bright red like the one above may not be appropriate for church or a business meeting per se while a crimson evening may be just the right shade for a formal occasion. You have to take your body type, your complexion and the event all in consideration. But know this, wearing a red dress will always command attention. And so I salute my favorite red dresses on the red carpet within the last year.
Eva Longoria at an event in London wearing a scarlet Ralph & Russo evening gown. The satin draped silhouette really compliments her small frame. The train is dramatic which is appropriate for this red carpet evening event.
Last year at the 2009 MET Costume Institute Gala Jessica Biel donned a custom William Rast evening gown. (Just really looked out, huh?) Now, although the design is unconventional, it’s still appropriate and she wore nude satin Louboutins to make her dress really pop. It was certainly over the top, but it is the Costume Gala – the more the dramatic the better.
This look is from this weekend. Singer Mya posed for a photo session this weekend at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel Miami Beach for Rock Media Fashion Week Miami finale. This dress gives me everything I need. It’s not safe at all. But it’s Rock Media Fashion Week. It’s not supposed to be. The hair, make up and shoes…thumbs up. (FYI, her skin looks amazing!!)
Real Housewife of New York Ramona Singer kind of shut it down at fellow housewife Bethenny Frankel’s wedding this weekend in NYC at the Four Seasons. This dress? There are no words. Aside from the bride, I think it’s safe to say she was best dressed. I like that it was a deep red. Very Crimson-esque which is wedding appropriate if you ask me.
