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.
