‘Seeing Red’ This Award Season
Will Smith’s slap heard around the world wasn’t the only buzz worthy moment of this year’s award season. In true red carpet fashion, the Oscars and Grammy Awards cast their usual light on couture gowns and bespoke suits from leading designers like Louis Vuitton, Carolina Herrera, Christian Siriano, Vera Wang and Versace. It’s a shame the 2022 Golden Globes were held privately this year, but the red-hot looks donned by this year’s top musicians, actors and producers might be enough to hold us over—for a little while.
Fitting of this sometimes fiery theme of the season, designers have gravitated to rich, intense and dramatic shades of red, from scarlets to burgundies. Among those decked out in the confident and sultry color were actresses Tracee Ellis Ross and Kirsten Dunst and actor Simu Liu,singer-songwriter Alison Russell and country star Ellie King.
From the spotlight to your office, consider incorporating this year’s red carpet shades into your next box-office success campaign.
