5 Red Carpet Formal Dresses

Everyone was seeing red at the Golden Globes last week.

It just goes to show you that there's a shade of red that looks great on everyone! Reds appear with a cool undertone or a gold/warm undertone. Color theory teaches us that if your complexion is quite fair, warmer reds look better better on you, whereas pink, olive and darker complexions look great with the cool reds. Don't know where your complexion lies? Try this and discover for yourself. Imagine yourself in these five red carpet formal dresses...

This strapless sequin formal dress from La Femmeis red carpet worthy! Here's an example of a cool red, perfect for the summer and winter complexions.

Compare the orange red in this formal dress. Sheer panels create the illusion that the red lace motifs float on this trumpet gown from Dave and Johnny.

Red beads and sheer panels create a completely different but equally glamourous formal dress from JVN for Jovani. I'd have to try this dress on myself, just to see if the red looked better on warm or cool complexions!

Sherri Hill's beaded open back party dress shows us that red carpet glamour comes in both long and short length.

One thing's for sure: red formal dresses make a powerful statement wherever you wear them. Which are your favorite?
