Velvet always has the power to instantaneously vamp up a look. This kind of fabric, although a bit too bold for some, is a great choice for evening affairs and formal events. It has a very luxurious feel, and with proper accessories and makeup, it can easily turn anyone into a sexy vixen.

We recently spotted 5 famous faces who turned to velvet dresses to sexify their red carpet appearances.

The most common color choice for velvet dresses is black, but deep-hued jewel colors like burgundy and emerald are also top choices. Velvet in these colors give a very vintage, vampy feel to a frock.
