We all know that a little black dress is a classic at this point. We all have one because it’s perfect for any occasion. But the red dress – that’s a special occasion dress. It’s the one you wear when you want to wow people, be in the spotlight, have everyone’s eyes on you and be in the center of attention. Red dresses are pretty memorable in that way, they stand out. So let’s take a look at some of the most iconic red dresses in the history of movies and tv shows.
1. Pretty Woman
This might be a movie about a call girl, but it’s a classic at this point, and the only thing more memorable than that scene where she walks into a store and buys all of the things is the scene where Julia Roberts wears this gorgeous red dress a pretty necklace and goes to the opera with Richard Geer.
2. Moulin Rouge
Nicole Kidman looked absolutely stunning in this red dress in Moulin Rouge. This movie, in general, has good costumes, but this dress was something else. The construction of it, that corset, the way it looks from every angle. It’s truly an iconic red dress.
3. She’s All That
Yeah, we know this movie is cheesy as heck, but you can’t deny the fact that you still watched it back in the day and loved every second of it. It’s a classic transformation story, and yes, it’s predictable that they take off her glasses, give her a haircut, heels and a red dress and suddenly she’s all that. But hey, this was 1999.
4. The Mask
The 90s are full of relatively simple dresses, but what they do the best is highlight a woman’s figure to the max. And this red dress that Cameron Diaz wore in The Mask was honestly the hottest thing we’ve seen up to date at that point. And you know, for 1994, it was pretty damn cool.
