Perhaps Hollywood starlets took the term red carpet literally this year, because dresses in every shade of red dominated the night. We can understand why — it's a statement-making color, particularly in a floor-length gown. There were all kinds of silhouettes — Rosie Huntington-Whiteley went for classic elegance in Antonio Berardi, Claire Danes did the girlie thing in Valentino, and Diane Kruger went for a boudoir-inspired look. Whatever your style may be, we suggest trying this dress color if you want to make a big statement at your next dressed-up event.
