In the Spotlight – Red Cocktail Dress Minus the Malfunction

0 Comments 29 March 2010

Katherine Heigl’s news of dress malfunction spread across the web faster than you can say Gray’s Anatomy. Along with news of the unattached strap is Heigl’s news that she will be leaving the show to spend more time with her daughter, Naleigh. With news of this latest fashion mishap the little red dress is in the spotlight again. We love how the bright color looks just right on a sleeveless dress. Whether it is tones of blue-red or a deep coral red we are loving all shades of rouge in cocktail dresses for spring.

Katherine Heigl graciously finishes her acceptance speech for Female Star Of The Year Award at the ShoWest convention after the strap on her red dress breaks. Also striking and red-carpet worthy is the Lotusgrace Pleated Taffeta Cocktail Dress (upper right, $460 at Saks.com). A perfectly pretty party dress featuring a full skirt and taffeta bow belt. This classic dress would be appropriate for a springtime wedding or even the prom! The full skirt has just the right fullness without looking like you’re trying too hard. From Oscar de la Renta the Angled-Pocket Dress with black belt (bottom right, $1990 at Bergdorf Goodman) is classic with a Mandarin collar and slit neckline that will look simply marvelous at the office or for the chic-est of dinner parties. I could even imagine this for a first date. It is polished and sexy at the same time showing off just a little bit of leg thru the slit skirt. Very vintage chic with a wide patent leather black belt. For the budget conscious recessonista is a noteworthy deal of the week. The Perfect Pleated Sheen Dress (bottom left, $27.80 at Forever 21) is the most star-worthy of red dresses. Glamourous in it’s appeal the pleated bust line and angled front seams combine for a hourglass figure fit. There is flexible boning embedded into the seam to add support and shape to the dress. Be sure to use some Bristol’s 6 Stylin’ tape to hold this dress up, unless of course you’d like to re-inact Katherine Heigl’s dress malfunction! On your toes try some black Burberry platform sandals.
