I love the colour red. It’s the decision of a woman determined to make an entrance. If I was a mistress in a Victorian novel and my lover decided to marry me after his wife passed away from apoplexy, whatever that is, I would wear red to our first opera outing. Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman would be channelling’me. Other non-hypothetical times red dresses stopped time? Kate Winslet in Ben de Lisi at the 2002 Oscars. Dakota Johnson at this year’s Academy Awards in Saint Laurent. Cher Horowitz’s?Ala?a.?You, potentially, this Christmas.
