Little Red Dress
The little red dress may not be a staple, but it is a great little dress to have in your closet for occasions when you want to dress up with a little pizzazz.
I can think of several occasions where and understated red dress would have gone perfectly in a situation. Delivering a presentation, going in for a the all important second or third interview .
A LRD could also become a great staple in your wardrobe, particularly if you have one that can morph from day to evening.
And let’s not forget the all important party dress. Nothing quite say party like a red party dress.
Fashion TipsThe best way to choose a red dress is to know the shade of red you can wear. Go to your favorite cosmetic counter and find a red lipstick that is perfect for you after all, you’ll need one to go with your dress. Reds like all colors have either a warm cast or a cold cast to them. The color that works best for you is the color that makes your skin glow.
Then armed with that little tube of color you’ll know what will work , it’ll be easier to find the perfect dress. You should almost always look for a shade of red that is rich and subtle not garish or cheap, even a party dress can sparkle without screaming cheap.
One more thing…its always a good idea to look at clothing under natural daylight. Something that can look great on you at the store under controlled lighting may look hideous under natural light.
Fashion Designer: Isaac MizrahiIsaac Mizrahi is not shy of color. You'll not only will you see a LRD in collection but a little green dress, a little blue dress and of course the little black dress. He was born October 14, 1961, in Brooklyn, New York. He is of Syrian Jewish decent. He attended Parsons School of Design in New York.
In 1991 he won the CFDA Women’s Wear Designer of the Year award. “I don'tlike people to feel completely described by the clothes they wear of mine. I want them to feel that they're describing themselves.” I.M. This is a women’s clothing designer who seems comfortable in his own skin.
He pulls together playful vibrant colors, fur trimmed slippers, glitz, glitter and plaids for one show. His next show might have conservative wool gabardine suits and basic pencil skirts in toned down colors. Then on to another show of simple shifts and softly flowing coats, gently layered. His main ingredients are always comfortable clothing.
He currently is creative director for Liz Claiborne. “If I just do it, it will take less time than telling someone what I'm thinking, and have them free associate, and then come back to me and I'll hate it and I'll have to redo it.” Isaac Mizrahi
