Kate Bosworth, Halle Berry, Heidi Klum and More Stars Sparkle in Shimmery Dresses: Trendspotting (GALLERY)

Trend: Ladies in Red
Starlets paint the town red in the season's hottest color.
The easiest way to shine during the holidays? Sport a shimmery style embellished with sequins, glitter or a coat of metallic sheen.

From gorgeous evening gowns to flirty frocks, stars like Kate Bosworth, Blake Lively and Halle Berry, have been sparkling on the red carpet this season.

And we’ve got the tricks to pulling off the high-wattage look.

Whether you choose a mini, gown or blouse, a shiny piece instantly lends a festive feel to any outfit.

Follow Alessandra Ambrosio’s lead, and go for head-to-toe sparkle with a sequined cocktail dress and silver or gold shoes for major star power, or opt for a more subtle way to shine with glittery or metallic accessories.

Light up in glimmering gowns for the weekend’s big holiday parties (New Years Eve anyone?), like Bosworth and new Bond girl Bernice Marlohe.

For after-work fetes, all you need is a single shimmery piece: Swap a shimmery skirt or top into your nine-to-five look, and you’re instantly ready to hit the holiday party circuit.

Add metallic heels or a glittery clutch to your LBD to jazz up your look for any occasion. Even something as simple as metallic nail polish is enough to give your look a festive update.

From a little to a lot, we’ve rounded up the latest stars sporting sparkling styles to inspire your holiday look. Check it out here.
