It’s hard to pinpoint why celebs love red cocktail dresses so much. It could be because of the vibrant color or because it looks so sensational or because red is the latest color to hit 2011 or it could be because red speaks of boldness and passion. A cocktail dress in itself speaks of vigor and gorgeousness – add to it the potent color of red and you have yourself a bewitching effect. Here are ten celebs that have not only sported red cocktail dresses but carried it off with style!
1. Natalie Dormer
A very nice, very elegant, very simple, classy red plunging neck gown. Dormer is looking absolutely fantastic and regal in this mind blowing creation she recently sported at the BAFTAs.
One simple word – wow! The off shouldered pleated pattern, the floral embellishment and the gorgeous fall of the red cocktail dress all add up to one simple word – wow!
This has to be an example of the most deliciously, gorgeously, sensational cocktail dress in a deep maroon sported by a pregnant woman. Ali recently wore this number and she looks so stunning. Her simple accessories and the one shouldered look along with that beautiful baby bump had me clapping my hands for her and whooping in happiness.
4. Katrina Bowden
An utterly fabulous creation – especially for teen girls! It’s simple. The slight ruffles along the dress perfectly compliment her petite frame and the belt showcases her narrow waist. A great effort and kudos for the overall affect Katrina!
5. Eva Amurri
Just when you think you have seen it all, along come Eva in a rather adorable, completely off beat cocktail dress. Its asymmetrical hemline and that cute bow just add this ‘cute’ effect. A great creation and well carried off!
6. Audrina Patridge
Sparkles – the true love of the red carpet. This gorgeous dual shaded deep red dress that Audrina Patridge recently wore calls out to me. It makes me want to smile because the snug fit totally highlights her gorgeous figure and the shimmer on the dress totally lights up what could have been pretty boring!
7. Mila Kunis
Of course this girl is exceptionally pretty. But this fantastic red dress she recently wore to the SAGs just took her prettiness to a whole new level! Voted across several sites as the best dressed of the SAGs its no wonder that she’s smiling so much these days. The credit rightfully goes to her oh so gorgeous red strapless gown. The specks and blends of nude and black only serves to add a spice to her entire get up.
8. Valerie Bertinelli
Just look at Valerie looking all perky and smiley and why not? I would be too if I was looking as fabulous as her. Her red strapless gown looks absolutely fantabulous on her and flatters her skin tone perfectly.
9. Tina Fey
Spectacular in a completely unexpected manner, Tina Fey positively rocked at the SAGs. It is one from the red lace long cocktail dresses . Beautifully carried off, this is one celeb who knows her style!
10. Julianna Margulies
I unreservedly and absolutely love this on her. She looks so darn pretty and sophisticated in this. It reminds me of those hoity-toity upper class women who look their nose down on you – except Julianna looks sweet and charming!
