Good look: The Red Dress

The little black dress has been played into oblivion. The red dress has become something of an icon, but it’s still an underrated one. Let’s bring it back. Go ahead and slip one on for Christmas. Sure it’s a little ‘festive’, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Antonio Berardi concocted this mouth-watering regal yet Gothic velvet dress with good intentions. I’ve never seen anyone – at least here in Toronto – pull off anything like it. And trust that they’ve tried to do a lot of things. But it’s a must, if you can get your hands on it.

Black lace. I say, red. This lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana is simple but effective. If you want to stand out amidst the black lace crowd, this is the way to go.

Alber Elbaz is the king of ‘the dress’. He’s the core of French fashion house Lanvin. Admittedly, this dress is very Cynthia Nixon. And I mean the actress. Not her character Miranda Hobbes from Sex in the City. Red is exceptionally flattering on a red-head it’s true. But didn’t you know that it’s just as stunning on virtually every skin tone?

If you’ve got the shoulders, I’d suggest you try this fold dress by DSquared2. The colour has punch. The cut is immaculate. It’s simple yet effective.

Ah, now this is my thing. As I’ve stated before, short and tight is my thing. Over the years, I’ve come think of Valentino as red and flowy, but this body-con like number takes the band to a completely different. It’s the sexiest of the lot. But then again, I am about my sex, aren’t I.

If your preference is for understatement, this Vivienne Westwood Jersey Dress could be right for you. Quite a coincidence coming from the mother of punk. But because it’s so minimal, it’s best to go with extreme accessories.
