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?

      Oooh yes.

  3. Chloe December 18, 2009 at 1:04 pm #

  7. Sarah December 17, 2009 at 10:16 pm #

    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 6:44 am #

      We have listed our favourites, we can’t feature everyone

  8. emma December 17, 2009 at 8:57 pm #

    marcia marcia marcia! she looks simply stunning

  9. Sara December 17, 2009 at 8:24 pm #

    Marcia Cross, the most beautiful redhead in Hollywood <3

  10. Chris December 17, 2009 at 6:41 pm #

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

  11. Talita December 17, 2009 at 5:50 pm #

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

  12. robbie December 17, 2009 at 5:09 pm #

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

  13. Lula December 17, 2009 at 4:58 pm #

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

  14. YSLGirl December 17, 2009 at 4:35 pm #

    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 6:23 pm #

      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.

  15. julia December 17, 2009 at 4:25 pm #

    amy adams!!!

  16. boogie December 17, 2009 at 4:24 pm #

    Marcia <3 <3 <3

  17. Rita December 17, 2009 at 4:20 pm #

    Marcia and Nicola!

  18. Jihan S. December 17, 2009 at 4:17 pm #

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

    • YSLGirl December 17, 2009 at 4:36 pm #

      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.

  19. mol December 17, 2009 at 3:40 pm #

    Marcia.

  20. Katey December 17, 2009 at 3:30 pm #

    My favourites are Marcia and Nicola!!!

  21. Sophie December 17, 2009 at 3:16 pm #

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

  22. Ni December 17, 2009 at 3:11 pm #

    Julianne Moore is my favorite!

  23. molly December 17, 2009 at 3:10 pm #

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

  24. Paulo December 17, 2009 at 3:05 pm #

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

  25. Ally December 17, 2009 at 2:55 pm #

    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.

  26. ace December 17, 2009 at 2:39 pm #

    marcia for the win. period.

    • mm December 17, 2009 at 3:40 pm #

      I’m with you ace.

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

  31. Lexa December 17, 2009 at 2:15 pm #

    all look great! out of those mentioned I really loved Amy’s and Julianne’s looks. I also loved Christina Hendricks in her green Malandrino dress:

    • Fashion Critic December 17, 2009 at 2:19 pm #

      thanks. How could we’ve forgotten Marica.

  34. Adrien December 17, 2009 at 2:07 pm #
