Jennifer Garner and Nicole Kidman were on fire last night, both sizzling in red dresses at two different events.

On the red carpet at the Argo premiere in Hollywood, Ben Affleck couldn’t keep his hands off his red hot wife — and who could blame him? Garner, who recently gave birth to the couple’s son, Samuel, showed off her post-baby body in a sexy crimson Monique Lhuillier gown with leather paneling. A bronze bulgari clutch and dazzling wraparound bracelet glammed up her smoking red carpet style.

Across the country, Kidman’s husband, Keith Urban had a similar problem as Affleck on the red carpet for the New York Film Festival Gala, where his wife was honored.

Urban cuddled up next to his wife, who sparkled in a red L’Wren Scott dress and shoes and matching lips.

The dress’ notice-me hue and keyhole neckline was offset by a ladylike three-quarter hemline and sleeves. Kidman’s coordinating crimson extras balanced out the dress’ sparkling floral pattern, while her bombshell waves matched the va-va voom vibe of the vibrant red shade.

Kidman and Garner aren’t the red carpet’s only ladies in red recently. A sultry alternative to black, the statement hue is been a hot trend for party wear this fall and winter — and it’s surprisingly flattering on just about everyone. Don’t believe us?
