It's not like Emily Ratajkowski's red, spaghetti-strap gown isn't fabulous. It is — that's why I stopped to stare as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed. But when I'm browsing for a holiday look, I usually skip over simple red sheaths like these in search of something with sequins or fringe. That's how I'll steal the spotlight, right?
Err . . . wrong, clearly, if you're seeing what I'm seeing. Emily's ensemble — complete with small, chunky gold hoops, layered necklaces, and a topknot to boot — is completely smashing. I don't know where she was headed, but I'm pretty positive she won best dressed for the evening. So, the lesson here? Maybe I should try exchanging the glitz and glam for a classic number like this one. Join me, won't you?
