When we spotted Angelina Jolie at the Moscow premiere of Salt last weekend, radiating in a scarlet-hued Atelier Versace gown and Jessica Biel, a few
days later, wearing a stunningly sheer Giambattista Valli gown in the same shade to the London premiere of The A-Team, it made us wonder: is red the new black?
Over the past few months the vibrantly classic color has been popping up on everyone from Ashley Greene, who rocked a high-necked Atelier Versace mini to the ESPY Awards, to Megan Fox, who dominated the red carpet of her Jonah Hex premiere in a daringly low cut Armani Prive mini.
Claire Danes hit the Valentino Couture show in Paris a few months ago, rocking a ruffle-necked and sleeved mini from the designer’s collection. Being the style siren that she is, Claire knew that subtle nude heels and a matching clutch were the way to go with such a color-happy frock!
Latina bombshell Sofia Vergara also achieved a style score in fiery fashion at the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival in Italy wearing an orange-piped, form-fitting frock with tan Yves Saint Laurent heels.
Though most of us can’t afford the uber-expensive price tags of these haute-off-the-runway looks, RadarOnline.com has found some more wallet friendly options to get the look.
Want to steal Kim Kardashian‘s sultry Herve Leger look?
Try the skintight halter from Ami Clubwear ($15.99), which will show off your curves without draining your bank account. Love Sofia’s ruffled number? Rebecca Taylor‘s spaghetti-strapped, asymmetrically ruffled mini ($395) will definitely spice up any summer party. Obsessed with the floral attaché on Megan Fox‘s Armani Prive frock? Dalia MacPhee‘s floral-shouldered cocktail dress ($265) features strikingly similar detail at a fraction of the cost.
Just remember, red is pretty much the most attention-grabbing color on the wheel, so make sure not to go overboard with accessories and makeup.
