Red gowns were a huge trend at the 2012 Oscars afterparties — everyone from Claire Danes to Salma Hayek to Kate Hudson sported the bold hue. But Diane Kruger's Calvin Klein number ruled the sea of reds. That's because her red lace bandeau bra took the dress to a fresh new level, making it the perfect look for an upcoming wedding. The trick is to keep the look in chic, not trashy, territory. How so? Find the classiest red dress that either has a plunging neckline or a subtle v-neck. Then pair it with a red lace bandeau bra — you can play peekaboo or go all-out bold like Diane did. Just make sure the dress isn't too tight, or else this look can quickly turn cheesy. You can also mimic this look in a more casual way by wearing a lace bandeau bra underneath a v-neck t-shirt, tank, sweater, or cardigan.
