Model Karen Elson is the 3rd gorgeous red head I’m featuring on my blog today following Julianne Moore and Nicola Roberts.

The one thing all these ladies have in common is that they’re not afraid of wearing bright colours. In fact their moto seems to be ‘the brighter the better’.

Karen attended the WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala in New York City last night wearing a stunning fire engine red Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 dress.

The runway purple would have been amazing on her, but the red is even more electric.

Her satin dress with a draped detail from the bust was accented with velvet red sash to the waist.

The dress is amazing, but the accessories really make this a BDOTW worthy look.

She teamed her dress with Marc Jacobs’ red feathered heels and a Marc Jacobs Black Orchid Pave “The Orchid” clutch in brown on the red with gold hardware.

This is one of my favourite looks so far this week.

You know how I love a lot of colour :)
