Celebrity Style Steal: How To Wear Red Like The Stars

Christmas is the ideal time to wear red. It’s bright, it’s bold and it turns heads!

If you’re a bit nervous about trying red then just have a look at others wearing red and it will give you more confidence. You’ll see that there are a lot of ways to do it, from a maxi dress to a midi dress,  with textures like lace or satin and the option of sleeveless, long sleeve and halterneck dresses.

The celebrities have been wearing a lot of red recently, wowing as they did so. And the dresses they wore were very similar or identical to ones at Very, which is good news if you want to channel your inner celebrity and look a million dollars on your next big night out. Let’s take a closer look:

Lucy Mecklenburgh


The model and TV star looked chic and feminine in a red lace dress at the Pride of Britain Sports Awards. The cut of the dress is really flattering as it gives a hint of leg without flashing too much flesh, while the lacy material stands out and makes her look rise above what the rest of the crowd were wearing. The best news – you can get the exact dress at Very with the V by Very high neck origami pleat dress.

Faye Brooks


Faye was nominated for soap’s sexiest female and you can see why as she looked divine in this red bodycon dress at the Inside Soap awards. The Coronation Street star has had some dramatic storylines this year but when the cameras stop rolling she looks gorgeous and girly. You can copy hers style with the V by Very cutout midi pencil dress.

Kate Beckinsale


The British actress has conquered Hollywood and always looks flawless. Kate’s secret is to keep things simple. Less is more when it comes to dressing up for her. With a dress that accentuates her figure, she doesn’t need any accessories. The V by Very high neck ruched jersey dress is very similar to Kate’s rich red dress.

Laura Whitmore


After wowing everyone on Strictly Come Dancing, Laura is wearing more ballgowns these days and looking beautiful as a result. A maxi dress is always flattering as it gives you a streamline silhouette and you can show that off with the red colour. The TFNC Janice pleated maxi dress has a similar halterneck style to Laura’s show-stopping dress.

Which way of wearing red do you like the most? One thing’s for sure, it will lift your spirits and your confidence!
