Here are the ladies in red (click image to enlarge). As ShinyStyle pointed out, red was the trend for 2008, with Dame Helen Mirren wearing a beautiful Georges Chakra gown offset by the lace sleeves, Miley Cyrus looked way beyond her teenage years in a body hugging Valentino dress. It was such a gorgeous dress, so one can't blame the girl for wanting to wear it! Anne Hathaway wore the red carpet critics favourite, a Marchesa gown with beautiful floral embellishment around the shoulder and bust, with folds of fabrics draped towards the bottom for a stunning grecian look. Heidi Klum wore a very bold red Dior Haute Couture dress, which I'm glad she wore in red. If it were in a darker colour she could look like the wicked witch in Snow White. (Sorry Heidi, I love you in Project Runway, but that's just what comes to mind).Finally Katherine Heigl sported Marilyn Monroe curly blonde locks, wearing a chic one shouldered Escada dress.
