I love orange and can pull it off in most shades, even though not in makeup. Here are a couple of recent example of orange dresses from the last couple of days:
The ever so lovely Emmy Rossum in J. Mendel (on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night), and Drew Barrymore in an inexplicable Jil Sander dress at the 50th Cover Girl anniversary party. I love the color, of course, but this cut is horrible. The two-toned hair also needs to go.
My own personal choice is the DVF Metro wrap dress in Sangria from Diane Von Furstenberg's 2010 Resort collection. I always pick a resort item or two when they go on sale this time of the year and save them for spring/summer, where they actually belong.
