Lady in red: Jeanne Beker picks Toronto’s most sophisticated little red dresses for Valentine’s Day


Published:

Jeanne Beker turns up the heat with a sexy selection of little red dresses that are perfect for a romantic Valentine’s date.

WINNER: Flirty and flattering
NICOLE MILLER DRESS FROM ANDREWS, $395
“I love all the ruching in this dress. It can be very flattering and helps hide the bulges! It’s just the right length, just above the knee. And it’s plain enough that you can dress it up with a great brooch or necklace.”

 

Pretty in polka dots
PAPILLON DRESS FROM PEPPERTREE KLASSICS, $80
“This is fun for the younger gals out there, with its sassy little polka dots. It is a dress with attitude, and you probably have to have a little attitude to wear it. Very sexy, very cute, very Valentine’s.”

 

All in the details
TWENTY CLUNY DRESS FROM HOLT RENFREW, $595
“I love this, this has sizzle! The beautiful peplum detailing at the waist and the fantastic silk leopard print lining are very reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana. It’s so well constructed and really is the kind of dress you could wear all year.”

 

Chic shift
JUDITH & CHARLES, $295
“Judith & Charles do great little dresses that always have a great fit. This is a number that can be dressed up or down — with the right pair of shoes, you could really glam it up. It is a practical, versatile piece with great detailing.”
 

 

Simply sexy
ROBERTO RODRIGUEZ DRESS FROM PAOLA DI, $465
“This dress is great. It proves that long sleeves can be very sexy. Just look at the way Naomi Watts looked at the Golden Globes in her similar Zac Posen dress with the dip in the back. This one has nice lines and a very modern look.”

 

Lovely in lace
LAUNDRY BY SHELLI SEGAL DRESS FROM PAOLA DI, $595
“This is absolutely elegant. You could wear this to a black-tie event with the right bling and accessories. It’s a very rich-looking dress. I’ve seen similar ones in some very, very expensive collections, and the fact that this is under $600 is fantastic.”

 

Short and sweet
RED VALENTINO DRESS FROM HOLT RENFREW, $595
“I just love these little knits. This dress looks like a little skirt and top, but it’s attached all in one piece. It has lovely detailing. This fabric is fun for all year round — you could wear an opaque tight for day or even go with a sheer for the evening.”
