Hollywood Love Affair with Red Fashion Tones

Red carpets are often overloaded with tones of black, silver, or gold. It’s no surprise as those are easy staples to choose for an elegant look. But when celebrities choose a bright colored gown, they are likely to stand out and draw more attention than the rest. Here we discuss actresses’ love of red and pink tones for a night out.

For her first time presenting at the Oscars telecast a few years ago, Emma Stone chose a romantic, flowing gown in a deep pinkish-red. Michelle Williams wore a red-orange gown with a peplum
feature to the Oscars one year. Jennifer Garner and Tina Fey also chose lush red tones for different awards shows – Garner’s dress with all-over sparkle, and Fey’s with all-over lace. Dianna Agron wore a striking red gown to a Golden Globes party one year – featuring intricate lace that appeared as if it was laser cut.

A few stand-outs in pink over the years are Jessica Alba, Emily Blunt, Paula Patton, and Sarah Hyland. Alba wore a strapless ballgown in hot pink to a gala one year; although it did look a bit more Barbie than elegant. Emily Blunt wore a sexy pale pink column dress with torso cut-outs to the Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala. Paula Patton looked charming when she wore a pink chiffon gown with sequin embellishments on the bodice. For the Emmy’s in 2011, Sarah Hyland chose a pale pink gown with one shoulder strap and a high leg slit.

Whatever the style, red and pink tones are a more romantic and attention-getting choice for a night out. Celebrities shine a little brighter in them when standing in a sea of black tuxedos and gowns. Please enjoy the slideshow of all the gowns discussed in this article.
