Red dresses made the news last night at the Emmy’s.  My husband says that they must have all called (texted?) each other to ask “What are you wearing.”  I’d like to think of it as a switch from the stereotype of women wearing red as a symbol of seduction to women wearing red as a show of strength. And there is strength in numbers.
