The Harper's Bazaar Spain December 2013 Issue Paints the Town Red

Beware of feeling green with envy when flipping through the Harper Bazaar Spain December 2013 issue starring Bette Franke: the lady sure does dazzle in red.

Each shot features the Dutch stunner in a series of scarlet-hued ensembles, from evening gowns with daring thigh-high slits to silky crop tops and leather pencil skirts. Each look, down to the suede red booties, was styled by Juan Cebrian. The spread was photographed by Nagi Sakai.

Luckily, these photos will serve as wardrobe inspiration for all the holiday parties you'll no doubt be invited to. Don't shy away from the bold red color and silhouettes of these designs -- after all, if there's a time to be dramatic, it's most definitely the holidays.
