Viewers of award shows might have noticed a trend in recent years: Some of the red carpets have been colors other than red.
But that doesn’t mean the color has been absent from the carpets. This year, red has been among the most popular colors worn by celebrities. Selena Gomez, Ayo Edebiri, Barry Keoghan, Dua Lipa, Meghann Fahy, Charles Melton, Michelle Yeoh, Suki Waterhouse and Margot Robbie are just some of the stars who have worn shades of red at recent awards shows like the Emmys and the Golden Globes.
Danielle Brooks, an actress in “The Color Purple,” is another star who has chosen red — specifically, a bright-pinkish shade that lit up with every camera flash as she walked the purplish-red carpet in her strapless gown at the Globes. Of the dress, Ms. Brooks told Vogue: “Red is a power color and I am feeling powerful.”
The following assemblage of red looks includes her gown and many more, from sleek and simple column dresses to over-the-top ensembles.
