As for her red dress: The silhouette is classic with a surprisingly oversized collar that imparts a real sense of fun. I confess: I miss the days when no well-dressed woman appeared in public without gloves.
Below the fold, Seraphic Secret’s picks for Hollywood fashions that are timeless and elegant.
