Red Hair + Green Dress = Red Carpet Perfection

When it comes to complementing their hair colour these ladies have hit the nail right on the (red) head.

All you flame haired ladies take note: A green dress is the way to go.

Isla Fisher started this trend when she wore a Monique Lhuillier emerald corset dress to the 2007 Oscars.

Amy Adams must have had a style crush because she copied this look to the 2008 Oscars when she wore a Proenza Schouler gown.

FC picked up on this and awarded her the DeJa Vu Award.

She obviously knew that Isla was on to a good thing.

Julianne Moore is another red head that knows what colours suit her. Twice in September we saw her in this colour and she dazzled us both times.

Even Katherine Hiegl, the honorary red head knew how to work her new hair colour in a Naeem Khan sequined one shoulder dress.

And you all agreed how well she worked this dress in a recent “Who Wore It Better” poll.

I love all these looks and it’s really difficult to choose a favourite.

I think that Nicola Roberts was a complete knock out in her Issa Silk Jersey Gown though.

Oops. We’ve forgot about Marica Cross at the 2005 Emmy’s. Thanks Dana.

What was your favourite look?

    What about Marcia Cross at the Emmys a few years back? She looked radiant. http://images.dawgsports.com/images/admin/Marcia_Cross_green_dress_full_length.jpg

    Nicola Roberts is my favorite. Everything is just perfect about that look.

    • Dora December 17, 2009 at 14:58 #

      But now I see Marica Cross. I can’t choose between them.

    • mm December 17, 2009 at 15:40 #

      I’m with you ace.

  10. Ally December 17, 2009 at 14:55 #

    As a redhead (well more auburn, than straight red), I’m a sucker for green and all of these ladies look wonderful. Good call, Sophie.

  11. Paulo December 17, 2009 at 15:05 #

    Julliane Moore wore a green YSL dress by Tom Ford and carried a green Balenciaga clutch in the 2003 Oscars!!

  12. molly December 17, 2009 at 15:10 #

    Marcia, hands down. Runners up: Nicola, Julianne Moore in the gown, Isla in the gown.

  13. Ni December 17, 2009 at 15:11 #

    Julianne Moore is my favorite!

  14. Sophie December 17, 2009 at 15:16 #

    Thanks guys :)
    And I completely agree… Marcia is a knock out. It’s such a close call!

  15. Katey December 17, 2009 at 15:30 #

    My favourites are Marcia and Nicola!!!

  16. mol December 17, 2009 at 15:40 #

    Marcia.

  17. Jihan S. December 17, 2009 at 16:17 #

    The red hair / green dress trend looks best on Marcia Cross… except for her extremely color-less skin.

    • YSLGirl December 17, 2009 at 16:36 #

      There’s nothing wrong with pale skin. If Marcia had darker skin, I don’t think it would’ve been as effective. It’s just so perfect.

  18. Rita December 17, 2009 at 16:20 #

    Marcia and Nicola!

  19. boogie December 17, 2009 at 16:24 #

    Marcia <3 <3 <3

  20. julia December 17, 2009 at 16:25 #

    amy adams!!!

  21. YSLGirl December 17, 2009 at 16:35 #

    I think Julianne Moore was the one who started this trend back in 2003 when she wore that amazing YSL dress at the Oscars.

    Does Katherine Heigl have red hair?

    I love Alison Pill, but her outfit is bad.

    • molly December 17, 2009 at 18:23 #

      Not usually – to the question about Katherine Heigl’s hair. It is almost always blonde, but she had it died a reddish auburn at the time she wore the green dress.

  22. Lula December 17, 2009 at 16:58 #

    Mine was Isla Fisher and Amy Adams for sure, classy and stunning.

  23. robbie December 17, 2009 at 17:09 #

    favourite has got to be marcia cross, j’adore!

  24. Talita December 17, 2009 at 17:50 #

    My favorite is Julianne Moore in YSL. She looks like a goddess.

  25. Chris December 17, 2009 at 18:41 #

    Yes, I think Julianne Moore started this trend at the 2003 Oscars with the unforgettable green YSL gown with green balenciaga clutch. Perfection.

  26. Sara December 17, 2009 at 20:24 #

    Marcia Cross, the most beautiful redhead in Hollywood <3

  27. emma December 17, 2009 at 20:57 #

    marcia marcia marcia! she looks simply stunning

  28. Sarah December 17, 2009 at 22:16 #

    What about Christina Hendricks? I seem to remember her being a total knockout in a green gown at an awards show.

    • Fashion Critic December 18, 2009 at 06:44 #
