Warm shades of red, pink, and orange are everywhere this season, and they look radiant on everyone. Carroll is vibrant in a dress (L.K. Bennett, $275) that takes advantage of stretch jersey's flattering, easy-wearing flair. "The legs are the last to go!" she says. "I bring attention to mine with skirts and midheel pumps." Washington is sitting pretty in a flouncy, rosette-trimmed silk dress (CH Carolina Herrera, $985) that would be perfect for a summer party.
On Carroll: Necklace, Coralia Leets Design. Ring, Diane von Furstenberg by H.Stern. Bracelet, Marco Bicego. Sandals, Guess by Marciano. On Washington: Pumps, Edmundo Castillo.
