“Lady in Red is dancing with me” rings the words of Chris De Burgh’s iconic song. Red is the colour of fire, it associates with energy, war, strength, and power. It also symbolizes passion, desire, and love. When you want to be noticed, you wear red. – The Iconic Red Dress
It is our go-to colour for Valentine’s Day, the most romantic holiday of the year. However, today red is also associated with heart health. Every year people support National Wear Red Day in February to show their support for the awareness of heart disease.
In support, we look at some of the icon red dresses in film.
We will never forget the ever-memorable Betty Boop with her baby-like voice and little red dress. Capturing the hearts of many already from her first appearance in 1932.
The curvaceous cartoon character turned heads, both human and animated in her revealing red number from the 1988 classic movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit
The southern belle famously dons a beautiful provocative red gown in the unforgettable movie Gone with the Wind.
In the more recent Black Panther, Danai Gurira wore a futuristic dress she could kick butt in. Inspired by traditional African textiles.
But who can forget the red dress worn by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? It has an undeniable touch of timelessness. What is certain is that a dress so famous as this could not have been any other colour than red. – The Iconic Red Dress
So, whether you going to a gala event, just need a pick me up and stand-out dress, or find yourself in New Orleans in August for the Red Dress Run which sees a sea of thousands of red dress-clad runners gather in cities around the world to run, party, and raise money for charities (can we say, Bucket List). Make sure you always have your red dress handy.
“Two things in the world are not meant to be hidden – love and your red dress.”
