5 red dresses we love inspired by National Wear Red Day

In honor of American Heart Health month, today is National Wear Red Day (as if we needed an excuse to wear red!). The Go Red for Women movement started in 2004 as a way to draw attention to the scary fact that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S. and counts for a third of all deaths among Latinas.

Since it is Friday, and Valentine's Day is fast approaching, we thought we would give you a little wear red inspiration. Here, 5 of our favorite Latinas rocking the color red. Why not throw on a sexy red dress tonight and go out for a (healthy) meal and a glass of red wine with your girls!


Jennifer Lopez (above) was stunning at the Samsung Hope for Children gala at Cipriani Wall Street on June 7, 2011 in New York City. We loved that she wore a nude shoe--so sexy.

When Penelope Cruz attended the German Premiere of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on May 16, 2011 in Munich, Germany, it was hard to remember that she had JUST HAD A BABY only a few months before.

Selena Gomez rocked this totally age-appropriate short dress to the Disney Kids & Family upfront at Gotham Hall on March 16, 2011 in New York City, proving you can wear red at any age.

We loved Demi Lovato's dress at the 2012 People's Choice Awards but really, it's her red shoes that standout here. I absolutely bought a pair just like it.

Is it Sofia Loren or  Eva Mendes? It was hard to tell when Ryan Gosling's boo attended the La Dolce Vita premiere during The 5th International Rome Film Festival on October 30, 2010.

How do you like to wear red?
