The holidays may be over, but that didn't stop Emma Stone from working a fiery red-on-red ensemble at the LA premiere of Gangster Squad. The blond beauty wowed in a strapless brocade dress, complete with a dazzling statement necklace and brooch belt, all by Lanvin, and a pair of red patent Christian Louboutin pumps. In Lanvin's Pre-Fall 2013 lookbook, the crystal brooch accentuated the dress's sweetheart neckline, but we love how Emma used it to define her fit frame. If you love this red-hot look as much as we do, shop our picks to re-create it for your next evening soiree.
While hanging out with boyfriend Austin Butler in Hollywood, Vanessa Hudgens showed us how to winterize our Summer maxi dresses with a few cozy staples. The actress wrapped a cozy black Stylestalker tube scarf a red long-sleeved maxi dress while toting this studded Alexander Wang bucket bag ($850). Vanessa completed her bold look with metallic platform sandals, round shades, and a bevy of mixed-metal accessories. Take a cue from this look and pair your bohemian dresses with a cozy scarf, then swap her sunny sandals for boots for additional warmth.
Last night at the GQ Men of the Year party in LA, not one, but three gorgeous celebrities opted to wear red. Brittany Snow went the maxi route, Rihanna chose a mini Calvin Klein, and Jenna Dewan picked a knee-length draped number.

Step inside for a closer look at their ensembles, then shop your favorites to pop at your upcoming festive soirees.
Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney are in London right now promoting their clothing collection, so it makes sense that Kim chose this red-hot Kardashian red keyhole dress ($69) for a fancy night out. We especially love the fiery hue and the gold bar detail. It would be perfect for an upcoming holiday soiree where you want to stand way out. Kim then tamed her sexy overseas look via nude pointy pumps, a black clutch, and a black leather jacket. For just $69, score Kim's exact dress, which also comes in a variety of other colors.
Demi Lovato and her fellow The X Factor judges and finalists partied in LA last night. Demi stood out in her Topshop red shift dress ($100), which she topped with a studded black leather jacket by Religion Lynch. Matching red lips and black patent Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps completed her red-carpet look. Score Demi's exact little red dress to wear all yearlong. During Fall, pair it with leggings or opaque tights and booties, or throw on a chunky sweater to give it a separates effect. Come Spring and Summer, ditch the tights and boots and throw on a denim jacket for a fabulous warm-weather vibe.
There are red dresses, then there are Valentino's red dresses that celebrities are obsessed with. Everyone from Maria Sharapova to Emma Watson to Kristen Bell to Claire Danes and many more have worn the design house's red-hot looks on the red carpet. They come in all sorts of sophisticated styles: leather, lace, scallops, bows, mini, midi, you name it. First find out who else loves Valentino's red dresses, then shop their dresses — including some exacts — for yourself.
Sports Illustrated bombshell Kate Upton attended an event in NYC last night wearing a red Antonio Berardi dress ($1,318) with nude Yves Saint Laurent platform pumps ($825). From the front it looked like any standard sheath dress, but when Kate turned to the side, bam, a sexy exposed zipper running down the side was revealed. We've seen a plethora of exposed-zipper dresses — mainly running down the back — but we're absolutely loving the side exposed zipper detail; it's fresh and subtly sassy. While Kate's exact is available to shop, we did also hunt down a very similar and less-expensive style that comes in three colors: this Hybrid midi-length dress with side zip feature ($145). Wear it to the office with a blazer and pumps, then come night, throw it on with strappy sandals and shiny baubles to party chic.
We've already established that celebrities are feeling all sorts of monochromatic outfits, but one color in particular is on fire, literally! Eva Longoria, Jordin Sparks, and Melissa George have all been spotted looking hot in head-to-toe red. Eva wore her red Asos sheath dress with red Charlotte Olympia platform pumps, Jordin sported her red Alice + Olivia peplum dress with red patent Christian Louboutin pumps, and Melissa donned red separates with Christian Louboutin's red bow sandals. Get a closer look at these red-hot ladies, then shop their outfits, including some exact pieces, to get the bold look for yourself.
Khloe Kardashian attended an event in LA wearing this exact red-hot high low dress by Norma Kamali ($275) with a chunky gold chain necklace and nude platform Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Simultaneously get in on Hollywood's little red dress obsession by scoring Khloe's exact red dress to pair with everything from pumps to sandals to booties. Then come Fall, wear it with tights and boots for an equally chic cold-weather version.
No matter the season, red dresses are the chicest way to stand out from a crowd.

And the great thing is that you can pick the style that matches your personality: square-neck, plunging, poufy, fitted, mini, maxi, and so on.
