Red Tie Affair: Christa Allen In Donna Karan

Who: Revenge actress Christa Allen

Where: At the annual American Red Cross Red Tie Affair in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless red Donna Karan dress with large pleating to the skirt and fan pleating to the bust from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with a black studded belt and black pointed-toe heels

Verdict: Firstly, I love large pleats on a skirt, but what draws me in with this dress is the exquisite structured fan detailing to the bust – how amazing is that – for me it instantly adds drama and flair to a simple-yet-flattering silhouette and I love it. Add the studded belt and black heels and it adds a sophistication perfect for a charity gala, seriously one hot look.

The only thing I am not loving is the casual vibe to her hairstyle, I want to see her shoulders so the ruffle on the bust shines, but this is me just being extra picky – but the large earrings do make up for it!!!

Also if like me you have been waiting for the Revenge, which every American seems to be obsessed with as it centres around the Hamptons, it is coming to the UK later this year as E4 have bought the rights – I can’t wait!!!
