Katharine McPhee Does Red Right (PHOTO)

WHO: "Smash" star and singer Katharine McPhee

WHAT: The American Idol finalist stunned in a red dress as she stepped out of the tents at New York Fashion Week. The plunging neckline works thanks to long sleeves and a modest hemline, and the gold ribbon detailing accentuates the vibrant hue. McPhee was smart to opt for simple gold sandals so our eyes focused on the winning ticket: that dress. The brunette bombshell kept it sexy with red lips and soft, sexy curls. Although we love her makeup, it was her little blue purse that reaffirmed our McPheever -- we love the contrasting color, very unexpected.

WHERE: The California native was seen at New York Fashion Week on September 12th.
