Crimson! Ruby! Cherry! In brilliant shades from scarlet to vermilion, red carpet looks in all hues of red had us on high fashion alert in 2014. The color was so prominent on our favorite leading ladies that it made InStyle’s annual Style 100 roundup featuring all the looks, trends, and pop culture moments that defined the past year.

Some of our favorites to hit the scene? January Jones in Givenchy Haute Couture, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture, Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren Collection, Emma Watson in Dior Haute Couture, Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Carolina Herrera, and Shailene Woodley in Donna Karan Atelier (pictured above, from left). Talk about hot, hot, hot!
