You can try googling Barbara Meier, she won Germany's Next Topmodel two years ago and has about your hair colour. She was on the cover of the Cosmopolitan in Germany in a purple dress and looked stunning. There are more pictures of her in other dresses in other colours too, maybe this is a help.

I love the bright blue colour in the first picture you posted!  I have blue eyes too and that colour really makes them pop.  My boyfriend has red hair (although it's blonder than yours) and looks really great in blue, too.  Green also looks fab on red-heads.  Because you're fair, you should probably stear away from pastels (I've made that mistake) but pretty much all jewel tones would look good on you.

Does it need to be shiny? Just wondering.

I'm a redhead with blue eyes, and I think a green or greenish teal would look great. Your hair is almost too bright for olive, but I think with the right makeup, you'd do very well in black.

Do you have the opportunity to get swatches of various hues to drape yourself in them in daylight and see which colors make your skin tones "sing"?

I would love to do the sample thing when I get the chance. It's just I won't be able to go material shopping for a while (I live in a tiny town and almost never get into the city) so I'm trying to plan out some of this to get a base idea so I don't take hours and hours to pick a colour.

Thanks for all the help. Smiley

your hair is lovely. 

Any jewel tones would likely be good on you, You could go with a color matching you eyes and it would look really good.

An emerald green like this

I think you would probably look great in the blue (forget the green!) my reasoning???



As a child I was absolutely OBSESSED with this dress. To this day I'm still mad A) I couldn't just wear it down the street for fun B) I'm not a red head.

Not that you have to wear this dress...but I really thing redheads in that bold blue is fantastic.

First, your hair is gorgeous!! It's so beautiful, and I think this color would be perfect:

Of course that's yarn, not a pretty satin or anything, but it was the only image I could find with JUST the right color. Anyways, whatever you choose, I'm sure you'll look fabulous!

My sis & I are both fair skinned w/red hair - she looks best in warmer greens & I look best in cool royal blues.  My eyes are blue/gray & hers are brown.  We both steer clear of bright purples.
Hope that helps.  Cheesy

There's no substitute for holding fabric of various colors up to your face and seeing what suits you. Not all redheads look good in the same colors, as IllusionsOfNormal's post points out. I think it's the skin coloring/undertones/whatever that counts the most.
