It’s time to get red hot. Red has always been the go-to color if you want to look glamorous and fierce. This spring, red has been seen all over the runways and also worn on the red carpet. The hottest shade of red this season is tomato red, which goes perfectly with the bold color trend for Spring 2011. Tomato is a brighter hue in the red family, making it ideal for a spring wardrobe.
The Oscars red carpet was covered in celebrities in head-to-toe red. The beautiful host of the evening, Anne Hathaway, matched her bright red lips with a strapless red gown featuring a bustle and floral appliqués, which are a very popular detail this season. Sandra Bullock took it to the extreme by wearing a bright red dress while carrying a darker red clutch and also had red lips to match. The most buzzed about young Hollywood couple, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, coordinated in red for the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Selena looked flawless in a red V-neck gown, while Justin accessorized his suit with a red pocket square. Take inspiration from Selena and Justin and have your date accent his outfit in the color of your dress on prom night.
As you can see, there are many different ways you can wear red this season. Prom is just around the corner and red is always a great choice when choosing the perfect dress. Red looks stunning on every skin tone and countless red dresses, both long and short, are offered for prom this year.
