When it comes to taking fashion risks on the red carpet, color choice plays a huge role. This year, Emma Stone did just that when she picked a beaded, yellow-green gown. However, one tried-but-true way actresses can stand out from the crowd on the red carpet is by rocking a striking, red look.

Several actresses went that route at the 2015 Oscars, choosing dramatic red frocks that acted as bold statement pieces. Rosamund Pike was a fine example at this year’s ceremony, where she looked statuesque in a strapless red dress with a scalloped neckline. Or, how about Dakota Johnson opting for a sleek, single-strapped crimson gown? Solange Knowles – a perennial fashion risk taker – opted for a red, long-sleeved shift dress with a turtleneck.

We’ve selected 10 beautiful ladies who showed up at this year’s Oscars red carpet wearing gorgeous, dramatic red gowns. Check them out in the gallery above and let us know what you think of their bold fashion choices in the comments below.
