Alia Bhatt’s latest OOTD proves red is one of the most classic shades that will never go out of style. It’s bold and loud, commanding attention while also conveying a sense of dynamism. Who wouldn't feel like a million bucks in Alia’s bright, vivid Prabal Gurung dress ($1,075 or Rs 75,000) that’s telegraphing an overall sense of happiness and positivity?

2018 has been all about bright, bold hues, from the much-talked-about yellow (thank you, Kareena Kapoor Khan) to a slightly more polarising but nonetheless buzzy colour trend: Cobalt and midnight blue. But Alia proves that the latest shade gaining traction is red. Alia wore the brightly coloured ruffled outfit to launch her new handbag collection in Mumbai on Monday. Alia’s pretty cutout asymmetric dress veered toward a fluid silhouette, while the unbuttoned details around the waist injected a sexy kick. The shiny fabric added another eye-catching, glamorous twist to it.

If your failsafe party formula is the LBD (little black dress), it’s time to switch it up. While rocking the fiery hue can be slightly more intimidating than wearing a more neutral look, Alia’s dress, from the Prabal Gurung’s spring 2019 collection, is fun, bold, and eye-catching. And to be quite frank, an instant confidence booster — so really, what’s not to love? Alia’s crimson dress is perfect to wear everywhere — compliments guaranteed.

Did you know Victoria’s Secret model Gigi Hadid and Black-ish actor Tracee Ellis Ross have sported that same stunning Prabal Gurung dress? We don’t judge them. This LRD (little red dress) is irresistible.
