Not all women can wear lime, but Drew Barrymore's warm skin tone is perfect for the bright hue. Her pale lime Versace dress fits like a glove and the bejeweled neckline adds some razzle dazzle.

Natalie Portman suits the deep, dramatic hue of claret because the color has as much warmth as her brown eyes and hair. She wore a Christian Lacroix evening dress on the red carpet recently.
