Gorgeous Red Prom Dresses

Red is strong and confident. It is powerful and impossible to ignore. Red for prom? Most definitely!At PromGirl, we're always a believer in wearing your invisible tiara, but we're all about showing that crown in other ways, too.

I kid you not, we've got pages upon pages of red gowns for prom(and if red isn't your thing, use the color search tool to let you choose prom dresses in other colors). It wasn't easy but here's four of my favorite long red evening dresses... did I miss something? backless long red prom dress by Flirt formal dresses at PromGirl

There's no missing this stunning open back long dress by Flirt. Its front halter bodice features angled tucks embellished with beads.

See how those same details echo in the back? Look how the center back gather pools gracefully into a train. Dramatic and graceful.

If you like the open back idea, but aren't so sure about the train, then this one shoulder prom dress with beaded side cut outs might be the right choice for you.

The cut is so cosmopolitan and I love the curves, which the sparkling sequins totally highlight.

Did you see how the dress shimmers? That fabric is perfectly slinky.

Both of these dresses wear easily and comfortably all night long. After all, who wants to be fussing with slipping, wiggling and tugging when you're showing your power? No, no, no, such distractions keep you away from the fun. It's your night out, not your night to run to the bathroom 12 times to adjust your dress. But I digress...

Equally wearable but with a whole different style is Flirt's strapless beaded chiffon long dress. The layers of chiffon swish as you move, and the careful beading and sequins on the ruched bodice follow that flow.

Strapless with an empire waist, this ethereal and dynamic dress is definitely a regal choice for prom or formal evening wear.

When we're talking red, it makes sense to "pump up the volume." For my last pick, I wanted to choose a red prom dress that kept the volume up. Thinking about this season's prom trends, a mermaid dress came to mind. Still not easy to choose!strapless long mermaid prom dress by La Femme at PromGirl

In the end, I flipped a coin and chose La Femme's strapless ruched mermaid dress.

Playing with sheer red fabric and a nude colored base layer, the details go to the max. The overlapping ruched line down the center of the dress lengthens the torso so the mermaid skirt doesn't overwhelm.

True to La Femme's great style, beads follow the mermaid skirt's lines. This is really a breathtaking way to wear red.

Whew! Choosing one red prom dress would be tough! If you're wearing red, how will you decide on the style? Click on over to PromGirl at Polyvore for collections of red long prom dresses and red formal dresses.
