In Tokyo with Brad Pitt for the premiere of Moneyball, Angelina Jolie went for a high-impact basic: a little red dress from Atelier Versace. The spaghetti strap, body-hugging dress plays well to Angelina's style repertoire of simple, streamlined silhouettes, but instead of going with nude, gray, or black — a palette she tends to wear a lot for daytime — she chose bold, sexy red. She finishes it off with nude heels and her handsome, bespectacled partner Brad. This isn't the first time we've been sucked in by the allure of a red dress; just last week America Ferrera looked stunning in a red Nicole Miller dress.
If you like the simplicity of Angelina's look, try one of these elegant red sheath dresses, pair it with nude pumps, and forgo jewelry in favor of a red lip and manicure. It's understated but very sexy, just make sure the red dress you choose hits at the knee, so it doesn't come across as cheap. Shop our pics for red dresses below!
