We're Inspired By Emmy Rossum's Red Carpet Look No shrinking violet, the Shameless star looks sexy in a red-hot floral print.

Floral prints are a pretty—and predictable— fashion theme this time of year. They sprout up on runways, usually adding just a touch of color to breezy sundresses and weightless tops. But this season, designers are putting the fever back in spring, reimagining flowery looks in audacious tones of crimson and firecracker red.

Here, Emmy Rossum eclipses the red carpet at the screening of Showtime's Shameless in a ruby Oscar de la Renta dress. A pair of strappy Sophia Webster sandals balances the bold effect, as does peachy-nude lipstick and a fresh, dewy glow. Before stepping out the door, pare your accessories down to understated jewelry, like Rossum's David Webb bracelets, and a simple black clutch. Bloom. Done.

Miracle Grow

With their winding ankle straps and suede cactus flowers, these Xacactus sandals by Manolo Blahnik heighten the sex appeal of any outfit with the cool of a desert night.

Fresh Crop

The sporty collar on this weightless Hilfiger Collection top has a cool, grounding effect. It's the ultimate hybrid of relaxed and refined.

Hot House

Embroidered tulle and scalloped edges make this scarlet Floral Vibes balconette bra by La Perla too pretty to keep under wraps. Undo a few buttons to let it peek through.

Nipped in the Bud

The glossy floral appliqu├ęs on this Carolina Herrera belt add a dose of charm and whimsy while defining the waist.

Garden Variety

Gucci's vermilion silk brooch has the ruffled petals of a garden rose. Pin it on your lapel for a burst of color and brightness.

Dew You

The tawny-rosy hue of Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Libre makes mouths look lush and full.

Wild Flower

Gauzy and sheer, this cherry-red guipure dress by Self-Portrait has a plunging neckline and a see-through hem, perfect for showing off those stems.

Branching Out

With its red and black crystals and twinned cherry design, the Marni Strass brooch is part sophisticated, part sweet.
