At Tony Bennett's 80th Bash, Kelly Clarkson Shines in a Classic Red Frock. Bite the Look, by All Means, and Do it on a Budget. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

The fabulous Vera recently posted this pic on I'm Not Obsessed of Kelly Clarkson sporting a classy, newly highlighted 'do, full-waisted red dress, and a pretty much nothing in the way of bling or accessories - an interesting, if under-the-radar, style choice.  To replicate the look and feel of this fab frock, look for a a plunging V-neck, and go for a dress with a defined self-belted waist: at the natural waist if you're more of a traditional hour-glass shape, or, if you are either low-waisted or have more of a pear-shaped silhouette, choose a higher empire/babydoll waist.

However, don't make the same mistake as Kelly of pairing a red outfit with red shoes.  Never, never, never attempt to match red shoes & a red outfit with red. Never. Ever. For some reason, it never works - even if everything were to come from the same exact dye lot. Instead, red outfits look best with shoes in caramel & tan shades for day, and for evening: black or metallic.

No bling? She looks a little frumpie. If only she had at least worn some long earrings and a bracelet at the very least!
