How to Wear Red From Head to Toe

Sunday night’s Emmy awards reminded viewers what Hollywood is all about – making a bold statement on the red carpet! Television’s biggest stars did not disappoint, with leading ladies taking center stage in the hottest color of the season, red! While red may seem too daring for some, this is definitely the time of year for fashionistas to play with this striking and confident shade. Let the best dressed from the Emmys red carpet inspire you to experiment with this sexy color from head to toe!

Red Lips

Christina Hendricks and Kerry Washington rocked classic red lips on the Emmys red carpet, reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour! If you want to try the red trend but don’t want to go overboard, start by adding a hint of color with beauty products. Red lips are chic and timeless, and a pretty look for day or night. Try a matte red lip instead of a glossy sheen for a more sophisticated feel. If you have fairer skin like Christina, opt for a blue-based red lipstick, while deep reds complement darker complexions like Kerry’s.

Revlon’s ColorBurst Lipstick in True Red is the perfect shade for everyone, an inexpensive buy at just $8.99 at drugstores nationwide, or $6.28 on Amazon.com

Crimson hued nails and toes are also a fun way to play with color. Rich tones of ruby, burgundy, and tomato are big nail color trends for fall. Just make sure to keep your nails short and manicured to avoid looking tacky!

Red Accessories

Zooey Deschanel and Kaley Cuoco added some unexpected pops of color to their Emmy looks by wearing statement red accessories! Every fashionista has a collection of belts, but nothing says stylish trendsetter than a sexy red sash. Look for a thin to medium width belt in all the materials and textures of the season. From classic patent and luxurious leather, to a simple ribbon style like Zooey’s, a red belt complements fall’s textured pants, printed tops, and refined shapes. Check out ShopStyle.com for 29 sizzling styles under $25!

If you want to make a statement, try a sexy, body hugging red dress. Look for styles that cover up and don’t show too much skin, like a wrap or sheath. Both are fit for the office or a first date! Macy’s.com has a good selection of affordable red dresses, like this NY Collection Wrap Dress for just $48! And remember, it’s important to balance your look when wearing such a powerful hue, so keep your accessories and makeup simple.

Grammys 2011 Fashion Review – Wearable Spring Trends

The biggest night in music was Sunday’s Grammy awards! While all the hottest artists took top honors on stage, the real awards should’ve been given to the fashionistas on the red carpet! What can we say about Lady Gaga arriving in an egg-like womb? While that style statement might not be relatable to the rest of us, leave it to the other music divas to showcase some of the most wearable trends for Spring – from leopard and metallics to bold colors and flirty prints!

Leopard

While Nicki Minaj’s head to toe, Givenchy leopard print ensemble might be a little over the top for most of us, you have to give her props for going out on a limb and owning her look at this year’s Grammys! Nicki did however remind us that leopard print is always in style, especially in key item pieces like blouses, shoes, scarves, or gloves. Animal prints are timeless and classic, and a great addition to your Spring wardrobe. Take a cue from Ms. Minaj and remember, less is more! Show off your inner feline by rocking a sexy pair of leopard print booties with jeans or a little black dress. Or, wear a leopard print blouse with black slim pants and sophisticated black flats.

Fun & Flirty Prints

Julianne Hough looked effortlessly sweet and sexy in a multicolored Malandrino gown with ruffled shoulders and a plunging neckline. Prints are a huge trend for Spring, from soft watercolors and feminine florals, to boho designs and geometric patterns. For those wanting to experiment with color this season, play with prints from head to toe (but not all at the same time)! Since romantic blouses and dresses are must have staples for every woman, why not mix it up with some new prints? Rock a flirty floral dress with a wide black belt and booties for a cool and sexy vibe. Or, add a fun pop of color to your everyday wardrobe with a watercolor scarf!

Soft Metallics

Sequins, metallics and shine aren’t just for special occasions anymore! Superstars such as Heidi Klum and Selena Gomez were rocking this sparkling trend on the Grammy’s red carpet. Softer and more demure hues in ivory, silver, bronze and gold make the trend easier to wear on Spring days and Summer nights. For a work appropriate ensemble, pair a loose fitting blouse with a coordinating slim pant for a seamless and sophisticated, body lengthening look. For a dazzling date night look, opt for a dress in a more casual shape versus a body hugging number. Soften your look with wavy hair or a loose up do, and complete the ensemble with a cardigan or leather bomber jacket.

The biggest names in TV and film hit the red carpet on Sunday night for the 17th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Another beautiful weekend in Hollywood meant clear skies and the perfect weather for all the hottest trends of the moment, from strong colors and metallics, to belted looks and tea length hems.

Such a sexy and powerful color, red can often be a difficult hue to pull off. But, with a few helpful tips from our favorite leading ladies, we’ll all be drop RED gorgeous in no time!

Simply Red

Julianna Marguiles looked effortlessly chic in this YSL strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline. With such a commanding color, it’s important to keep the rest of your accessories simple. Her striking raven hair is pulled back in a clean ponytail, showing off her beautiful face. Jewels are minimal yet elegant, with dazzling chandelier earrings in a modern shape, a classic black clutch and matching peep toe pumps. For many women, red can be an intimidating color to wear, day or night.

Black Swan star, Mila Kunis, looked ravishing in a sexy bohemian inspired floral print gown from Alexander McQueen. Her beachy brunette waves and sultry smoky eyes were the perfect complement to her show stopping look. This spring, boho and hippie chic styles will be popular from head to toe. And a great way to have fun with this eclectic style is to play with prints. Bold color combinations of fiery red, blood orange, and warm neutrals would look amazing on every woman. For the more daring, pair a floral printed, floor grazing maxi dress like Mila’s with some sexy gladiator heels. And for the more conservative fashionistas, spice up your jeans and a tee with a funky geometric printed scarf and some cage strap wedges!

Old Hollywood Red

Nothing says Old Hollywood Glamour than classic red. 30 Rock’s Katrina Bowden looked like Hollywood royalty in a charming crimson red strapless gown from BCBG Max Azria Atelier. The draping on the bodice, ruffle detailing, and embellishment at the waist added a feminine elegance to this chic gown. Her soft wavy hair was swept to one side, while her shoes, bracelets, and handbag were just the right amount of sparkle to complete the look.

Starlets of yesteryear played up their assets with just a few key items, from bold red lipstick and body hugging gowns, to stunning ruby jewels and fabulous stiletto heels. There’s nothing classy about rocking red from head to toe!
