What: Red Gowns on the Red Carpet
Why: Crimson. Scarlet. Wine. Fire engine. Red was the hot color on the red carpet this year. Apparently, the gutsiest celebs aren't too worried about blending into—or clashing with—their surroundings.
Heidi Klum looked smashing (as always) in a simple, beautiful cherry red Dior, while Ali Larter went for wows with a flowy, lipstick red satin sheath by Reem Acra. Kate Walsh accentuated her fiery mane (and showed off her newlywed glow) in a deep red Pamela Dennis gown with an oh-so-daring scoop neck.
Get Yours: Get the glossy sheen of Mary Louise Parker and Ali Larter's looks with Vera Wang crimson beaded satin tulle trim dress ($330) or stand out, sans bling, in ABS by Allen Schwartz Silk Chiffon Halter Gown in candy apple red ($378).
