The Hot Zone
"I want a pause when I walk into a room," says singer-songwriter Maiysha Simpson, 30. "I think it's every woman's right to be a showstopper." Red puts everyone on the alert, and this silk taffeta strapless (eDressMe New York, $275), with its big bow, is fabulous for an eggnog party. (And since it isn't Christmas-specific, you can wear it all winter.) The bubble shape has a gift for hiding hips and thighs.
