You may not have the unstoppable confidence of Sofia Vergara on the red carpet -- or any of her awe-inspiring "assets" for that matter -- but that doesn't mean you can't rock the color trend that took the Emmy Awards by storm: one-shouldered red dresses. Apparently clashing with the red carpet itself is no longer a concern for Hollywood's elite; red gowns made waves back in February at the Oscars, but the updated fall interpretation of crimson show a little extra shoulder a show-stopping sexy effect. You may not have an excuse to go shopping for a full-on gown (unless you have your own benefit, gallery opening, or awards show to attend to!), but you can never have too many chic cocktail dresses, especially considering the holidays will be here before you know it! A red cocktail dress oozes sex appeal and confidence while still looking elegant and glamorous, while the asymmetrical neckline keeps the look interesting and on-trend. Be inspired by Old Hollywood glamour with a 2011-12 update with this ruched Halston Heritage dress, or go for a more relaxed, floaty look courtesy of this Lipsy Chiffon Dress. If you're a fan of constructed details, this BCBGMAXAZRIA draped dress makes a unique statement, while this Tadashi Shoji dress proves that a little texture goes a long way!
