Red party dresses are the perfect way to stand out from the crowd this Christmas. Perhaps not the obvious choice of colour when it comes to a dress for a Christmas party, but red party dresses can also look sophisticated, feminine, chic, festive and very stylish. The perfect choice if you want to look so hot that you sizzle. The LDB (little black dress) has a lot going for it in terms of versatility, but if you really want a party dress with the ‘Wow’ factor, the red party dress or cocktail dress is the answer.
You can pick from a range of different shades of red this season from bright to berry reds. Choose the red that really makes your complexion glow for the hottest party look. Those with dark hair will tend to look best in dark red shades whilst those with blond hair will look amazing in scarlets. Another great tip for choosing your red party dress is to keep it simple, the colour will provide enough of feature and a reason for people to look, there is no need to over complicate things.
Gain inspiration from the red dresses on the catwalk for autumn and winter 2010 which were a refreshing change to neutral colours that are also popular this year. At Richard Nichol there was a softly tailored one shouldered shift dress, the ultimate in elegance. Bottega Veneta also featured red with a skirt just above knee height worn with fishnets, a difficult look to pull off but can look amazing if done right. Alexander McQueen’s collection featured spectacular and elaborate red brocade dresses and an embellished floor length gown.
Here are some of our favourite red dresses.
One Shoulder Red Rose Dress
This one shouldered dress by Rare Fashion is chiffon which is a great way of softening a red dress for a feminine and romantic look. The rose also makes it look extra special for a party.
Lipsy One Shouldered Gathered Dress
This Lipsy dress is seriously hot with its shiny satin and asymmetrical gathered style. It needs an equally hot pair of heels to show it off at its best. A really daring dress and definitely a head turner.

Lipsy As we know are the brand for Party Dresses and that is recognised by the celebs who flock to the store to get the latest look with the likes of American Celebutante Kim Kardashian, and our very own Cheryl Cole and Alexandra Burke who is a self confessed Lipsy-a-holic.
Hot in the Lipsy hit parade this week based upon popularity in store are these stunning party dresses, but the thing about it is that all but one of them are one shoulder dresses.
That suggested that an awful lot of us are loving that asymmetrical look right now, and no the wonder as it’s just a great on trend glamorous look that shows no sign of slowing down.
This wonderful Lipsy One shoulder drape dress has a great Grecian look defined by the layering and draping which is very popular at the moment, match with a pair of gladiators and you’re sorted, we mean gladiator shoes not the hulky Russell Crowe type of Gladiator of course.
This Lipsy Asymmetric Jersey Mini Dress Is also a great look, something quite different than the rest but will get you noticed. An alternative the Little Black Dress this Lipsy Asymmetric Jersey Mini Dress has a forgiving shape for a fuller figure and is also reminiscent of the vintage Halston 1970’s look which is making a great comeback at the moment too.
The next party dress is just a wonderful example of a summer party dress, The Lipsy Chiffon Draped Panel Dress is cool breezy and light, perfect for a balmly evening or perhaps a stuffy hot venue. The dress ties in with a key look at the moment which is draping and could have stepped straight from the catwalk shows of Peter Pilotto whose signature style is draping and considered to be the master of that particular style, none the less the Lipsy Chiffon Draped Panel Dress will be significantly cheaper than one of Pitlotto’s originals.
The Lipsy Beaded Detail One Shoulder Dress is a classic hollywood look with the classic asymmetrical style white draped dress and contrasting waist band. It also featured beaded embellishments on the shoulder to add interest. This party dress is just great for a Wedding or Garden party, ideal with a giant black circular hat and killer heels and a subtle clutch for that Joan Collins look!
Finally we come to a Lipsy classic Lipsy One Shoulder Pleated Dress looks absolutely wonderful and shows off your curves too.

Kimberly Wyatt is a singer, song writer, dancer, model, actress and choreographer who is best known for part in the former American pop and dance group, Pussycat Dolls. Kimberly is now proving that there is definitely life after the Pussycat Dolls. Kimberly left the chart topping girl band earlier this year to pursue her own solo career. Not only is she now one of the judges on hot TV programme ‘Got to Dance’, but she is also finding just a little bit of time to get out there and party herself. Not surprisingly, Kimberly is one of a long line of celebrities who choose to wear Lipsy party dresses when she wants to look stunning for a night out. Lipsy London is a label which is perfect for the party girl with attitude. The dresses range from body con to frilly and romantic designs but all of them are designed to get you noticed for the right reasons.
In the past Kimberly’s style has been described as a little risque with her clothing very much associated with the Pussycat dolls including corsets and PVC leggings. She is now getting the chance to explore and develop the more feminine side to her style bit still with a bit of attitude. She likes to mix up her outfits with clothes from British Designers like Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen and pieces from the high street. Kimberly Wyatt is also the face of the brand Lipsy watch collection, a range of watches mix of quilted, cuff and chain styles with embellishment which will be the ideal accessory for a Lipsy party dress.
The nude and pink tones of Lipsy party dresses look perfect with Kimberly’s colouring but Lipsy also has a wide range of Lipsy party dresses in different colours to suit everyone. Kimberly favours the soft lines and textures of the more romatic and frilled or chiffon dresses which look great when contrasted with some tougher looking black accessories.
Kimberly was pictured (first picture above) after a night out at the studio Valbonne in London. She wore the Lipsy Grecian drape dress with a cropped leather jacket, silver clutch and chunky bangles for a look that screams rock n roll party girl. The dress has an elaborate design with a halterneck, fitted bodice and tulip skirt decorated with elegantly draped pieces of fabric. Grecian style draped dresses are huge news at the moment and Kimberly’s choice was the perfect choice for a night out. Her long quiffed hair is the perfect finishing touch for a polished but funky look.

A leopard print dress certainly says something about you. It says that you are right on trend and ready to party but also a bit of an animal. A leopard print dress needs to be worn with attitude. It is not for the shy and retiring types but for the girls who know what they want and that is a good time. With animal prints being such a huge trend this winter, the leopard print dress is the ultimate Christmas party dress of the season.
Animal prints particularly leopard prints do have a bit of a reputation though and you need to pick your style carefully to ensure that you look more ‘Pixie Lott’ than ‘Pat Butcher’. Consider the colour, size and boldness of the leopard print and how it will work with your colouring, size and shape.
Rare Fashion Leopard Panel Dress
For example if you are petite, then look for a small scale leopard print.
Motel Janine Dress
If you larger hips then perhaps opt for a shift dress with a black skirt and leopard print top.
Lipsy One Shouldered Gathered Party Dress
The one shouldered or asymmetrical leopard print dress is also a really fashionable look this year. Also combinations of leopard print with other animal prints is a great look that will work for most people.
You can also try combining you leopard print dress with another key trend of the season. A really up to date style or shape of shift dress will keep the look really fresh.
Paprika Leopard Lace Dress at Rare Fashion
If you love this seasons lace dress why not go for a leopard lace dress combination.
Rare Fashion Leopard Print Sequin Bandeau
If your average leopard print is just not glamorous for you then why not add sequins as well.
Olivia V Neck Maxi Dress
For those that don’t like body con and mini dresses, you can find some great leopard priny maxi dresses online. With a fitted bodice to show off you upper body and a long looser fitting skirt to skim over the tummy, hips and thighs, this is the perfect choice for those who are a little self conscious about their body. It also great for those who want to rock the leopard print dress in a slightly more grown up and sophisticated way.
A final word on leopard print dresses. They are a huge style statment in their own right and generally don’t need anything to compete with them in the way of accessories. Wearing your leopard print dress with neutral coloured shoes and accessories are very this season but you might also be able to get away with one really bright and bold accessory. Red works really well with leopard print.
At Dolce and Gabbana, leopard prints were combined with polka dots for a bold and unusal look. You could try adding a polka dot accessory for a brave but on trend look. Low key and understated jewellery is the way to go or even go without jewellery altogether.
Lipsy have once again excelled themselves with their New collection of VIP Party Dresses which hit the store this week.
The eagerly anticipated 2010 designer dresses collection was launched on-line and in Store simultaneously to critical acclaim, and though a small collection, it certainly offers a rich selection of beautifully crafted, bang on trend VIP Dresses which Lipsy say are ideal for special summer occasions.
These VIP Designer Dresses has an emphasis on glamour, luxury and sophistication and sets a very high standard for this season with some sensational garments and certainly builds upon some wonderful VIP Party Dresses from last year.
Exclusive & Rare VIP Party Dresses
Lipsy have informed us that as the VIP collection is more Couture than Fast Fashion, and the collection is designed to be limited in stock and as a result only small number of each item has been made, Lipsy say that in the interest of its customers they regard VIP Dresses as being a premium brand and that customers enjoy wearing a garment that is not necessarily going to be worn by someone else at the same function as that would lose the essence of the brand, the down-side to this is of course that the VIP Collection is likely to sell out very quickly.
VIP Dresses Have Celebrity Status
Lispy are a a brand that transcends the gap between Celebrity and the ordinary buying public as their women’s clothing is adored by the likes of Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke and Alesha Dixon as well as many other celebrities.
Their new VIP Dress designs this year take the collection to new levels for the Summer, but also keep some of last years classics such as the Vip Bejewelled Heart Layer Dress which was a firm favourite on the red carpet for the like of Corrie’s Michelle Keegan, and the Vip Studded Feather Dress which was seen on glamorous Pussycat Dolls star Kimberley Wyatt.
Brand New VIP Designs
Of course Lipsy haven’t been resting on their laurels as they’ve introduced some super new knockout designs to improve the overall line up of Lipsy VIP Party Dresses and will certainly get you noticed, we can see in the Vip Bustier Sequin Dress which we see as being a very special favourite with a lot of you this year, or perhaps the Vip Maxi Beaded Strap Dress as a little more understated, but all the same a stunning summer maxi dress maybe for a big special occasion this summer such as an outfit for a wedding.
However If you want something different and to totally glam it up, well Lipsy will not disappoint you their either, the new Vip Bandeau Disc Dress for example is a perfect example of the new VIP collection, this stunning Dress looks amazing and is very epitome of the Luxury VIP brand.

If you love celeb watching and checking out their celebrity dresses, then you should also check out Lipsy for some amazing celebrity style. Look out for party dresses that match the style of all of your celebrity dresses worn by Kelly Brook to Jennifer Lopez. Whether you have a summer party to go to or you are looking for amazing wedding guest dresses, you can get some great inspiration from the celebrities. Here is the low down on our favourite celebrity style for summer 2011.
Kelly Brook’s Style
Kelly Brook is a regular on the red carpet and always looks immaculate and polished with her long dark hair and amazing figure. She definitely knows how to pick out the best clothes to compliment her curves. She started off her career wearing a barely there pink sparkly dress to the Snatch premier back in 2000, perhaps not that stylish but definitely attention grabbing. Since then her style has evolved into a much more sophisticated look. She is often seen wearing pieces by her favourite designers but she is also not afraid of wearing high street clothes as well. It would be difficult to pin point just one style for Kelly Brook as she is constantly changing from cute retro to glamorous and sophisticated. She loves wearing red, black and greys and always opts for feminine and ladylike dresses. She also often wears bodycon dresses which really flaunt her figure.
Jennifer Lopez’s Style
Jennifer Lopez is another celebrity whose style has evolved over the years from her trademark velour tracksuits and hoop earrings to a much more sophisticated look with plenty of beautiful celebrity dresses. Another celebrity who also knows how to work the red carpet, she is clearly no longer ‘just Jenny from the block’. Jennifer Lopez is famous for her beautiful glow and her choice of nude, cream and white dresses compliment her skin tone perfectly. In recent years she has begun to wear some really beautiful and elegant dresses including the floaty jewel encrusted Zuhair Murad dress that she wore to the Met Ball. You can Jennifer’s style with soft floaty chiffon dresses in nude colours accessorised with perhaps just a little animal print!
Kate Middleton’s Style
One person who is going to be very much in the public eye over the next few weeks and who is also much admired for her style is Princess to be, Kate Middleton. Ever since the announcement of the royal engagement at the end of last year, we have become obsessed by what Kate wears. She has a very simple and elegant style and favours dresses witha classic cut and mid length skirts. Her outfits do however usually have a modern twist to them. One of Kate’s most recognised looks is the blue dress that she wore for the announcement of the engagement. Kate is probably the best celebrity to watch for inspiration for wedding guest dresses as she is often photographed at formal occasions. She often wears beatifully draped pieces like chiffon dresses. You can get her look with this elegant blue dress by Lipsy.
Don’t forget to check out the celebrity dresses and wedding guest dresses at the royal wedding on 29th April for some more great style inspiration.
