vogue red dress 2

Red is the color of blood, rubies and roses, associated with love and beauty, but also with fire and danger.

Red lipstick, Red shoes, Red dress: it is the emblem of seduction, which no man can resist to.

Red is timeless, like Love.

Many designers have been inspired by this color, almost all of them has used it at least once, and some of them made it as their famous signature, like Valentino for his dresses and Christian Louboutin for the sole of his shoes.

““Red has guts. Deep, strong, dramatic.”   –   “Women usually prefer to wear black at events because it makes them feel safe, however, if there’s one woman wearing red, she will inevitably be the eye-catcher of the evening. It’s as though the room is suddenly illuminated- simply perfect for a grand-entrance”.  ~ Valentino ~

“I selected the color Red for the sole because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable and the color of passion.” ~ Christian Louboutin ~
