Wonder what colour you'll be painting the town this season?

Anne Hathaway’s doing it, Sandra Bullock’s doing it, Thandie Newton’s doing it…in fact everyone who’s anyone is stopping traffic in pillar box red.

Yep, scarlet fever’s the new fashion epidemic, so it’s time you caught the bug. The shops are full of party season dresses to choose from and and we’ve hand-picked three of our favourites.

Be true temptress in Next’s one-shoulder show-off (top left), £36.99, 6-22; set temperatures soaring in a sexy satin pencil dress from Star by Julien MacDonald at Debenhams (bottom left), £75, 8-16; or shine bright in Mk One’s hot halter-neck, £20, 8-16.

Whatever you choose, you’ll be hot stuff.
