CAREY MULLIGAN and Diane Kruger have been paying attention to autumn’s trend notes, each packing a punch on the red carpet in this season’s knockout colour. Mulligan in a blood-red Giambattista Valli Resort gown at the New York premiere of Mudbound last night, and Kruger in a couture crimson gown by the Italian designer at a Cartier party just two days before.
Not just the shade of choice for red-carpet sirens getting the paparazzi snapping, Victoria Beckham has been running errands, and visiting student son Brooklyn in New York, wearing tomato-red separates of her own design.
The US capital also saw Margot Robbie strike a pose in fresh-off-the-catwalk Versace at the Good Morning America studios. The mood of her Eighties power skirt suit? TV anchor-woman goes to Hollywood – one that got the Vogue stamp of approval.
Those in a rush to start wearing headline-grabbing red before party season commences can consult our designer guide below. But, take a tip from Mulligan and add a bold red lip, autumn’s ladies in red aren’t about compromising.
