I’ll be the first to admit that I was more than a bit excited to see not one, not two, but three of my biggest girl crushes; Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Eva Longoria on the cover of October’s issue of Latina magazine. Celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the publication, 15 lovely Latin ladies posed alongside each other in designer red dresses, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘lady in red.’ Other beauties snapped on the cover included Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Zoe Saldana.

A great red dress has the ability to transform even the most shrinking violet into a sex-siren, so why not rev it up in red and sizzle into Autumn by heading over to Tellusfashion? This Red cocktail dress by Esse-Elle’s stand out colour will allow you to get noticed but the chic and elegant cut and demure length stops it from being tacky. Likewise this dark red little lace dress by Guillermo Leon oozes sophistication but with a fiery and sexy twist. If however, you’re not feeling brave enough to embrace all over red, then a red clutch or red shoes will add a pop of colour to your outfit.
So what do you think of the raunchy red trend? I love the cover, my only issue being where are Eva Mendes and Penelope Cruz…?
If you thought lace was a trend confined to fall 2010, then think again… Lace is just as big a trend this season but takes on a more romantic, softer feel in comparison to the darker gothic look of last winter.Featured in the Spring/ Summer ’11 collections of Anna Sui, Oscar De La Rente and Vivienne Westwood this is a look that’s definitely here to stay.
Model Chanel Iman worked the ladylike look in lace when she attended the ‘Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty’ Costume Institute Gala on May 2nd 2011 in this Dolce and Gabbana lace sheath dress.
Chloe Sevigny stops her lace from looking too girly by toughening it up with black accessories, red lips and biker boots.
Does Blake Lively ever get in wrong? Here she is looking gorgeous in another Dolce and Gabbana lace creation. The flirty scalloped hem, the bracelet length blazer and the nude shoe boots all amount to a look that makes her on-screen and off, the talk of the town.
Want to get the celeb lacy look? Check out Tellusfashion the place to find the up and coming designers of the fashion world. Guillermo Leon has some amazing lace dresses and this Ivory and Black Little Lace Dress is a dead ringer for the Oscar De La Rente number.
