Colour blocking is the trend du jour.

A whole bevy of beauties have been spotted out in this look-at-me shade.

New X Factor judge Tulisa looked red hot in her Alexander McQueen number at the auditions, while Dita Von Teese oozed fiery glamour in a pillar box-coloured shift dress.
And Jennifer Anniston sizzled in this peek-a-boo strapless dress in New York. The queen of casual chic showed how sexy showing a little bit of flesh can be.
