Fall 2014 Trend: Red Dresses

We’re fascinated with the idea of evening wear going red, which it clearly has for fall evidenced by the staggering number of designers—notably Zac Posen, Giambattista Valli, and Dolce & Gabbana—using the take-no-prisoners hue for formal gowns and cocktail dresses.

Most prevalent: The use of true lipstick red, and it’s clear women are already embracing the shade: Red was the most-worn color at this year’s Emmy Awards.
