We recently caught up with pretty and petite Selena Gomez. She was at ArcLight Cinemas, Hollywood California to attend the premier of her movie “Spring Breakers” on March 14, 2013. And what must we say; she looked a lady in red. Her entire look from head to toe was simply flawless. Her long flowing gown was a perfect match for her somber personality. To top it off were her messy hair-do, a black clutch, dainty dangling earrings and her nude makeup. There was not a fault we could spot.

Many celebrities have donned red outfits to a string of glamorous and prestigious award ceremonies. However, not all of them managed to carry it with the same élan. Jennifer Anniston was the only one who rocked this color at the Oscars.

Red exudes sensuality. It looks classy and sexy. But, sadly it is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is a tricky color to wear whether it’s a dress, jeans, shoes or makeup. Red does flatter specific skin tones. However, even for these a mistake in the manner you wear them can turn you into a fashion disaster.

So, to avoid all the troubles here’s our red alert. Given are the dos and don’ts of wearing red.

1. The Red Dress

Like the little black dress is considered a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, a red dress is also regarded as a must-have today. A red dress, whether short or long can be worn to a prom party, evening dinner parties or a date. Choose an appropriate design. It should not look vulgar or slutty. The dress silhouette should flatter you body shape and look elegant. Avoid a pile up of accessories. You can go without the necklace and opt for a bangle or bracelet. You can also wear diamond or solitaire earrings. Black shoes in whatever style work perfectly for a red dress. Keep the makeup toned down. You can let your hair loose or have it done up in a neat bun.
