Red heads are hot. Granted Bold Face has a soft spot for our copper topped brethren. Here we’ve rounded up five red headed stars to showcase how nicely a ginger hue can offset a stylish pair of sunnies…

In HBO’s hit show True Blood (hey! Blood is red too!), Carrie Preston plays Arlene Fowler, an unlucky in love divorcee with two kids who waitresses at Merlotte’s. Her signature bright red hair and quirky personality have helped make her a popular reoccurring character in the series. Where Arlene is a little bit more cutoffs and tank tops, Carrie gravitates toward glamour in her real life as evidenced by her oversized Diane von Furstenberg DF529S sunglasses from Marchon. The True Blood season finale airs Sunday, Sept. 11 on HBO at 9pm…




Shaun White, a.k.a. The Flying Tomato thanks to his long red locks and snowboarding acumen, is wearing the Holbrook from Oakley, but it’s not just any Holbrook. This particular style Shaun is wearing here is part of a collaboration between the Olympic medal athlete and Oakley…




Debra Messing and her enviable red hair are making a comeback to TV. Starting in February 2012, Messing can be seen regularly when her new primetime show Smash begins on NBC. Until then you can catch the red headed beauty here in the Trés Trés sunglasses from L’Agence by Sama




Jessica Chastain has had quite the year. First hitting our radar when she stared with Brad Pitt in Tree of Life earlier this year, she is also currently in the The Help which has been #1 at the box office for the last three weeks. Here the gorgeous ginger is wearing the Dolce&Gabbana Lace sun style DG4116 from Luxottica




Who said the red had to be natural? Rihanna’s cherry red hair has become a signature look for the lovely Bahamian pop singer, as has her quirky and unconventional fashion sense. Given how fashion forward her look is, it is no surprise she has gravitated toward Australian designer Karen Walker and her Number 1sunglasses from her eponymous collection.
