Red Is the Color of Hollywood Trendsetters

If there's a single color that can convey power, beauty, romance, and sex appeal, it's gotta be red. So it's no wonder that it was the color of choice for so many actresses on the Globes carpet tonight. It was the color both for breakout stars — like Lupita Nyong'o, who marked her first major award show arrival in an exquisite crimson Dior gown — and Hollywood vets. In every iteration, the effect was bold and beautiful, a color well-suited for the confident women who wear it. Get inspired with a look at the trendsetter right here.
