Ladies in Red: 6 Crimson Dresses From Diane Von Furstenberg's Fall Fashion Show


Are you a die-hard Diane Von Furstenberg fan? Yeah, join the club. If you love DVF's beautiful, figure-friendly dresses as much as I do, you'll love her fall 2012 collection—which was just chock full of cool prints and bright colorblocking. Check out six of my favorite red dresses from Diane's fall collection, after the jump.
Red on Red: Okay, really, it's red on maroon—but I love the idea of wearing a dress over pants in colder weather. Layering different shades of the same color family feels like a really modern way to colorblock—and to make sure that you always match!
Halter Slip Dress: All the freedom and comfort of wearing a slip dress, but somehow less bare—this softly draped halter gives you a bit of coverage and a lot of room to move.
Not a One-Shoulder Dress: How many one-shoulder dresses have you seen in the last two years? A lot, right? I know, I know, asymmetrical is trendy and kind of edgy. This fall dress from DVF is slightly asymmetrical—it's gathered and sleeved on one side—but won't preclude you from wearing a bra, which is nice, I think, you know, to not have to worry too much about your underwear.
Fancy Collar: A simple lipstick-red dress—that's perfect for work or cocktails or dinner parties—gets dressed up with a fancy embellished collar.
Sexy Halter: This dress is ravishing—a totally sexy dress—but doesn't actually expose that much skin! Plus, doesn't it look kind of figure-forgiving? Gorgeous.
My Favorite: Okay, I know this is not technically red—it's more of a red/brown or an ultra-dark plummy-maroon. But I love it. It has sleeves, it's so figure flattering with that nipped-in waist, the color is stunning without being flashy, and it will take you from work to drinks to dinner easy.

Which red Diane Von Furstenberg fall 2012 dress do you like best? Are you a red-wearer? Here at Glamour we're big proponents of the Little Red Dress (to go along with that Little Black Dress in your wardrobe). What do you think?
