Wearing red on the red carpet is a tricky thing (one would assume, our invites always get lost). Celebs are wary about blending in and their gorgeous dress not standing out amongst the crowd. It's easy to see why it's not a popular choice. But the worm might be turning. Agyness Deyn wowed in a clashing-yet-demure red and purple number at the Empire Awards this weekend and we're still loving Natalie Porman's vintage Dior number.
The LRD might just be the new LBD. Here are some Little Red Dresses that you need in your wardrobe:
Red isn't exactly a forgiving colour so make sure any dress you choose is well-cut. This dress by Nocturne at House of Fraser (£640) has some really interesting embellishments so you don't need to worry about jewellery.
It won't be long before a soap star is wearing this red cocktail dress to a fridge door opening of some sort. It's got Jessie Metcalfe written all over it. And it's only £50 from Zalando.
This Oasis dress has more than a little Agy going on, doesn't it? The simple shape and flower pattern work without being prissy. Smaller prints always look more modern when it comes to florals (remember those giant poppy prints on silk skirts in the 90s?) It's £70.
OK, if you truly can't decide between little red dress and little black dress, here's the best of both worlds. This is more black dress, but it's sexy, isn't it? There's just enough red, and the shape will give you gorgeous curves. It's £45 from Motel.

It's always a bit embarrassing to fall over in public. It's even worse when you're a supermodel, and the place you're falling over in is the catwalk at New York Fashion Week in front of hundreds of cameras and the best of the fashion industry.
Agyness Deyn took not one, but two painful looking tumbles while walking the Fashion For Relief show, which aimed to raise money for the women and children of Haiti (and was, ironically enough, organized by Naomi Campbell, whose own fall during a Vivienne Westwood show in the 90s went down in fashion history).
Like a true professional, Agyness picked herself up, gave the applauding crowd of fashionistas a bow and took off the offending shoes to complete her appearance.
Is Agyness Deyn morphing into Karen O? The edgy black bowl cut and leather biker jacket make her a dead ringer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer, and the avant garde red buckled boots don't hurt either.
Music fan Agyness was spotted at the screening of new HBO TV show How To Make It In America at the Bowery Hotel in New York City. Later, the supermodel was seen with Kirsten Dunst leaving the after party. Rock on Aggy!
What's all this about Agyness Deyn and Orlando Bloom - another new romance bubbling under? Calm down dear it's only a commercial! Yes, lucky Agyness and Orlando got together recently for professional purposes only, to star in a campaign for Chinese fashion label, Me & City.
But while Agyness looks quite happy hamming it up for celebrated photographer, Terry Richardson, poor Orlando looks rather uncomfortable. Ah, don't sweat it Orly, you know no-one will ever see these pictures. Oh wait...
Hey Agyness, long time no see! It seems like ages since we saw Agyness Deyn on the social scene but this week she was out at a screening of the new James Franco film, Howl, in the company of Bjork, Mischa Barton, Michael Stipe and Brook Shields.
Wearing an all-black outfit complete with knitted snood, topped off with a power-shouldered leather jacket, Agyness was seen getting on famously with Franco who plays beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the film. Following a cosy chat, they asked a mutual friend to put them in touch.
Agyness Deyn seemed keen to prove that she's the bestest at accessorising at the Accessories Council Excellence Awards earlier this week.
Despite watching Lady Gaga walk off with an award for commitment to accessorising, Agy proved her ascendency by rocking up in a pair of gigantic false eyelashes. Of course, she also bunged on loads of bracelets and a pair of sky-high heels just to really hammer the point home.
In stark contrast to Gaga's mess of neutral colours and soft shapes, Agyness stuck to clean lines and strong colours - from the Eighties-inspired suit to the Purdey currently residing on her head. To be honest, it just shouldn't work, but because its Agyness, it sort of does.
Agyness Deyn demonstrates how to do 'The Purdey' for the 21st Century - just accompany it with lots of mid-Nineties jewellery and wear nothing but black.
She have gone a bit Shakespeare's Sister, but there's no doubt Agyness is onto something here. As she hit the New York premiere of An Education, Agy mixed different shapes and fabrics for an interesting and multi-faceted look.
Black doesn't have to mean boring - and it certainly doesn't have to mean 'teenage goth having a strop.' Pixie Geldof, take note.
If you fancy getting imaginative with black, check out this season's glam rock trend.
Another Agyness Deyn appearance, another hair-do du jour. This time the artist formerly known as Laura Hollins was sporting a jet black bowl cut (already dubbed The Purdey after Joanna Lumley's Avenger character by some over-eager PRs). And what better time to launch it than her mate Henry Holland's Spring Summer show?
She looked fantastic, of course, but just imagine how the rest of us are going to look once we've taken a pudding bowl to our heads?
The drop in temperature over here means that most Brit celebrities have been trying out their favourite pieces from their Autumn/Winter wardrobes in the past few days. But, with New York enjoying a bit more of an Indian summer, poor old Agyness is having to stick to her summer staples for a bit longer.
She looks as great as ever, but with so many great trends coming up for the new season, her androgynous skinny jeans and rock tee combo look a tad dated. Get some shoulder pads pronto Agy!
