Whether you’re dreaming of the red carpet or a red rose ceremony on your quest for reality TV fame—I mean love—this is the perfect time of year to get carried away. I usually loathe the girly color, but something about bright Barbie pink has me swooning this season.

I adore the structured cut, especially the sweeping bottom—to allow for being swept off one's exposed feet (in classic pumps, of course). The shimmering silk-faille silhouette also promises a dream-worthy train.

In any event, the next time I am nominated for a red carpet award, I will only have to shovel out $6,290 to don my dream dress.
