Red frocks can be an easy target for paparazzi shots, especially if you're Katherine Heigl.

The star was spotted at last year's Oscar Awards wearing a bright red Escada gown, and since then, it seems as though everyone has been trying to rock what Katherine Heigl so elegantly draped off her shoulders just one year ago.

Implications - The color red comes with a lot of different connotations and when placed on clothing, it often symbolizes power and sexuality. Fashion designers that create red clothing will surely be bought by those women who want to amp up their sex appeal. In a world where many men are still on top, it is important for women to feel empowered by their clothing choices.
