The red dress is timeless. Sexy. Ageless. Don’t you agree?

With Valentine’s Day just a week away, today seemed like a love-ly day to share some stunning red dresses at a variety of price points as well as a few of my absolutely favorite celebrity red dress moments… just for fun and inspiration.

How do you style your go-to red dress after 50? 

Lady in Red

Do you remember the song, dear readers? I do!

“I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I’ve never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away”

A final thought: If red doesn’t make you feel sexy, find something that does! A long bath, a walk in the park, a good book, or a fresh manicure. In my opinion, darlings, feeling great in one’s own skin is rewarding at every age.
