Big fashion lesson, ladies: When you want to dress to impress and make a sexy impression, red is always a viable choice. Kate Beckinsale is living proof in this slinky red long sleeve wrap dress she wore to The Pink Party this week.

Who knew covering up could look so sexy, right? Here, Kate takes a mostly modest wrap dress up a notch with a partial slit, a subtle V neck and a sleek fabric that glides over her curves in the most flattering way. She streamlines the look with mostly black accessories, opting for the color on her fingernails, feet and wrists.

The final verdict? As if the rest of her look wasn't already perfect enough, Kate just had to blow me away with one of her signature hairstyles, the perky ponytail. The fun 'do adds just the right touch of flirty flair to this already bangin' look. Well done, Kate!

Jennifer Hudson has been on a fashion roll lately! The actress and singer continued her streak this week when she selected a tres chic black and nude dress for a red carpet event. Let's discuss!

Jennifer really knows how to work those curves! The fabric of this dress is just perfect for her va-va-voom figure, since it hugs her in all the right places but is loose enough to forgive any problem areas. The up-to-there slit adds some sexiness that contrasts nicely with the dress' demure neckline and the colorblocking up top adds some nice visual appeal.

The final verdict? Loving the look, girl! Something else I dig? The beauty look that accompanies this outfit. Jennifer's pompadour 'do and juicy lip color look super fun against such a statement-making dress!
