Kanye West performs on stage at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards splattering the stage in head-to-toe tomato red.  Heidi Klum wore the same monochromatic duo at the Project Runway Spring 2011 fashion show in New York a few days before.  Klum’s orange-red suit (part of her collaboration with New Balance)  was criticized for being less than flattering to her flawless figure.   It was last summer that Penelope Cruz blended into the red carpet in her red-orange three piece.  Who gave this look justice?

It’s always fun to see a runway concept out of context, but red on red is a bold and brave trend to embrace.  AF Vandevorst, Maison Martin Margiela and Givenchy included solid red looks in their ready to wear lines during Paris Womenswear Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011.  Other takes on this aesthetic were worn by Actress Sarah Jessica Parker at the Halston Spring 2011 presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week last night, and Kate Bosworth at  The Vanessa Bruno Dinner at Chateau Marmont on July 21, 2010 in Los Angeles.  Do you see this trend taking to the streets or did Kanye and Klum kill it?  See red through the years here.

    Love red! However, matchy matchy is too much and ruins the look of hotness.
