Fashion Trend Watch: Plush Red Velvet

With Christmas fast approaching, the A-list are giving us endless festive wardrobe inspiration. Last night, it was model Jessica Hart and actress Chloe Moretz working another party-perfect trend – red velvet.
Banish all thoughts of the naff crushed velvet your mum used to dress you in for special occasions – AW11’s velvet is super luxe and sumptuous. Chloe went for a rich wine shade at the Hugo premiere in Paris, pairing her chic pencil dress with matching pumps, while Jessica smouldered in a scarlet floor-sweeper at the Pirelli Calendar launch in New York.

Good old Topshop have jumped on the trend, with red velvet brogues, skater dresses and slinky body-con frocks, but there’s a whole load of velvet high street hits out there to make this celeb-approved look your party season staple. GG
