Anne Robinson takes to London's streets in a BURKHA to

By Eliza Scarborough for the Daily Mail Updated: 01:17, 30 April 2010 7View commentsFrom cool crimson to rich cherry, follow our foolproof guide to making a splash in spring's most vibrant hue.The fashion palette is a precarious thing and, let's face it, a totally red outfit is one that only the boldest fashionista can usually carry off. (Think of Christina Hendricks's gorgeous blood-red dress at the Oscars this year.) This season, red is making a splash in all the shops  -  and anyone can wear just a little red without looking too garish. A pair of cherry cropped trousers, for example, takes even the plainest of outfits from now to wow. LEFT:  Jesire dress, £129,  johnlewis.com; trench coat, £199, tedbaker.com; necklace, £8, newlook.co.uk, peep-toes, £49.50, marksandspencer.comRIGHT:  Max & Co jacket, £199, Fenwick, 0207 629 9161; top, £79, Reiss at John Lewis; bag, £195, and belt, £45, both reiss.co.uk; jeans, £29.50, M&S; courts, £70, aldoshoes.comOr what about investing in a red trench coat, which can be layered over anything from a classic skirt and top to a pair of jeans and a knit on colder days. Alternatively, if you don't feel bold enough to wear such a strong punch of colour, try a simple scarlet T-shirt paired with navy, nude or black. Very on trend. Tan, taupe or nude work well with vibrant shades of red and will keep the look classic and simple. Otherwise, a navy trench looks great over red. Simply slip on a pair of leather wedges or beige suede courts to pull the outfit together. LEFT:  Hobbs dress, £139, John Lewis; belt, £9.99, Zara, 0207 534 9500; bag, £129.90, Massimo Dutti, 0207 851 1280; peep-toe shoes, £80, AldoRIGHT:  Hobbs coat, £139, John Lewis; top, £39.90, Massimo Dutti; skirt with belt, £49.99, and shoes, £59.99, both Zara; bracelets, £75, pomegranate-london.com LEFT:  Farhi top, £135, Fenwick; necklace, £595, dinnyhall.co.uk; cropped trench, £49.99, Zara; jeans, £19.99, H&M; courts, £155, Russell and Bromley, 0207 629 6903CENTRE:  Top, £39.90, Massimo Dutti; Kenneth Jay Lane necklace, £169, Fenwick; jacket, £19.99, H&M, 0207 323 2211; shoes, £29.99, and bag, £79.99, Zara; skirt, £19.50, M&SRIGHT:  T-shirt, £12, M&S; Les Prairies de Paris jacket, £295, Fenwick; necklace, £240, Dinny Hall; trousers, £150, lkbennett.com; bag, £169, Reiss; shoes, £20, and bracelet, £6, New LookFor an impossibly glamorous investment piece, head to Joseph or Hobbs to check out their range of ruby red dresses (or Matalan if you are on a budget). Accessorise with gold jewellery from Dinny Hall or New Look. The key to working this colour is to invest in a few key staples  -  such as a trench coat, a shift dress or some cropped trousers  -  which you can then team with your wardrobe basics, to stretch your style for any event while looking classic and chic.HAIR AND MAKE-UP: BRENDAN ROBERTSON USING MAC AND BUMBLE & BUMBLE FASHION ASSISTANT: BARBARA MCMILLAN Share what you think The comments below have been moderated in advance.

She would later burst onto the scene at the 2012 Olympic trials, where she was the youngest competitor yet blew away the competition in the 800m freestyle. She later captured gold in the event at the London 2012 Olympics at age just 15.She has gone from strength to strength ever since, and is currently starting a potentially historic run at the Rio Games, winning gold in both the 200m and 400m freestyle events. ALY RAISMAN (GYMNASTICS)'Always a diva!' A throwback photo of gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman reveals she was always ready for her close upMaking it big: Aly was a member of the 2012 Fierce Five team that took gold, as well as the Final Five who have triumphed in RioAt 22, Aly Raisman is the oldest member of the gold medal-winning Final Five of USA gymnastics, and was also a member of the 2012 champion team the Fierce Five.Back in 2012, Aly shared an image of herself as a youngster posing in a floral dress and sunglasses, writing on Twitter: 'Let's be real... I was always a diva.' Aly will be competing for gold in the individual all-around on Thursday along with her teammate Simone Biles.  MICHAEL PHELPS (SWIMMING)The great one: Michael Phelps shared this image of himself (left) as a child starting out in swimming, long before he became the most decorated Olympian of all timeOn his way: Michael has already picked up three golds in Rio, including one in the 200m butterflyVideo courtesy of Jeff Cooper Even the greatest Olympian to ever live started as a skinny kid slumped over the edge of the pool.Michael Phelps may have had his ups and downs over his career, but their is no denying that there has never been a dominant force in sport quite like him.Despite becoming the most decorated Olympic athlete back at London 2012, Michael continues to add to his collection, already picking up three golds in Rio, including two relay medals and one for the 200m butterfly - adding up to 21 in total.LAURA ZENG (RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS)A childhood photograph of rhythmic gymnast Laura Zeng who took up the sport at seven (left); and during the 34th Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships 2015 (right)The 16-yer-old wunderkind from Chicago has been tipped as the best rhythmic of all time, having taken the sport up at seven. But as this gravity-defying photograph shows, she was poised for success at an early age - picking up all-round gold at her first ever competition.She told TeamUSA.org: 'I think I’m pretty athletic, that I have a style. I feel I have a lot of energy and power and rhythm, too. And I like to perform. 'For me, the most fun is when I’m smiling and dancing and I sense the audience is enjoying my routine. I try to feel it.'CONOR DWYER (SWIMMING)This childhood photograph showed swimmer Conor Dwyer had a passion for swimming fro an early age (left); Conor poses for a portrait at the 2016 Team USA Media Summit (right)Hitting his stride: Conor has already picked up a bronze medal in the 200m freestyleHe's just picked up bronze in the 200m men's freestyle, but the 27-year-old heartthrob from Illinois, whose  chiselled abs have earned him a legion of female fans, looked drastically different in his early days. This family snap shows he's always been a swimming fanatic, but even Conor himself couldn't have predicted the dazzling career that lay ahead.GABBY DOUGLAS (GYMNASTICS)She hasn't changed a bit! Gabby Douglas poses for a snap as a young girl (left); and her official portrait at the 2016 Team USA Media Summit earlier this year (right)High kicking: Gabby and her Final Five teammates already picked up a gold, but she was sadly denied a chance to defend her 2012 all-around title after being beat by her teammatesShe's just helped her team win gold along with an impressive 15.766 on the uneven bars, but as this photo shows, the 20-year-old Virginia native has always been a dab hand at gymnastics. Starting at the tender age of six, it was her older sister Arielle who convinced the their mother to enroll the youngster in a class. Her sister, who told how Gabby learned to cartwheel at the age of four, told USA Today: 'She was my little Flexi Lexi. I'd put her on the floor and she'd be doing splits. She was just super flexible from Day One. 'But I didn't think about Olympics at first. I mean, who could imagine this?'NATHAN ADRIAN (SWIMMING)All smiles: London 2012 100m freestyle champion Nathan Adrian proves that he has always been cute as a button with this childhood snapTaking off: Nathan gained a gold along with the rest of the 4x100m freestyle relay this weekFreestyle sprinting specialist Nathan Adrian helped the men's 4x100m freestyle relay to gold already, but has his own Olympic title to defend in the 100m freestyle. The 27-year-old has been a fan favorite with spectators thanks to his good looks, which he proved to come by honestly after sharing a smiling photo of his toddler self on social media.'Look at that handsome little guy! Just looking thru old pictures while I am home,' he wrote back in 2011.  ASHTON EATON (ATHLETICS)Athlete Ashton Eaton smiles for a family snap (left); and winning gold in the Men's Heptathlon at the IAAF World Indoor Championships earlier this year (right)The 28-year-old decathlon star, who now stands at over 6ft, proves he's always had a winning smile in this cute childhood snap. With one of the most important sporting events of his life, the men's decathlon, taking place next week, Ashton, from Oregon, will no doubt be training hard. Speaking of his wife Brianne, who is flying the flag for Canada in Rio, he told SPIKES: 'During the World Championships in Moscow I ran my fastest ever 400m in a decathlon. 'I could feel the ring was balanced on my finger and I was thinking: Brianne will be cheering for me, I should run harder for her. It did end up working out.'MISSY FRANKLIN (SWIMMING)Swimmer Missy Franklin has fair hair and freckles in this childhood snap (date unknown); and during a press conference at the 2016 US Olympic Swimming Team Training Camp (right)Making waves: Missy proved a sensation at London 2012 where she won four gold medalsHaving picked up four golds and a team bronze at London 2012, 21-year-old Missy says her fascination with swimming started at the age of two when she paddled away from her mother after spotting a fish in the sea. By 13, the 'female Michael Phelps' was swimming professionally, and she joined the Pan Pacific Championships as the youngest United States team member at 15. The only child from Colorado, credits the unwavering support of her parents, D.A. and Dick, for her success. However the is virtually unrecognisable in this sweet childhood snap, with fair hair, freckles and blue eyes.JOE KOVAKS (ATHLETICS)Shot put champion Joe Kovaks beams in a festive portrait as a toddler (left); and posing for a portrait at the USOC Rio Olympics Shoot in November 2015 (right)This adorable Christmas snap of athletic star Joe as a toddler shows he's hardly changed a bit.

'We have this bond that you really can’t separate.'RYAN LOCHTE (SWIMMING)Little boy blue: Ryan Lochte is known for his antics out of the water as much as for his success in itHit in the water: So far, Ryan has only racked up one gold as a part of the 4x200m relay in Rio, but he is tipped to win moreThe American Olympian resident 'bro' has apparently always been a fan of the color blue if this sweet baby photo is anything to go by.The future Olympian is seen sporting a blue onesie, long before he was dying his hair ice blue in honor of the Rio Games.Ryan has only racked up one gold so far at the Games as a part of the 4x200m freestyle relay, but he's expected to bring in a much larger haul over the coming days.SIMONE BILES (GYMNASTICS)Looking up: Simone Biles has regularly shared throwback images of herself as a child - unsurprising given just how adorable the baby Biles wasLittle Princess: Simone (right as a youngster) will be expected to take home the all-around gymnastics gold this weekLeading the way: Simone is a three-time World Champion at just 19 years oldThree-time World Champion gymnast Simone Biles is rarely snapped without a smile on her face, and it seems that has long been the case. The 19-year-old may have been one seriously adorable child according to her frequent throwback snaps, but these days she is a force to be reckoned with.Simone already has one gold under her belt thanks to the Final Five's success in the team competition, but she is also tipped to take the gold in the individual all-around final.DAVID BOUDIA (DIVING)Cute as a button: David Boudia might be hitting the road in this adorable throwback image, but he is far more at home on the diving boardNailing it: David and his synchronized diving partner Steele Johnson grabbed a silver in RioDavid Boudia blew away the competition at London 2012 to take gold in the 10m platform competition.And while he will soon be looking to defend that title, the 27-year-old has already added a silver to his name with a triumph in the synchronized 10m platform event alongside his partner Steele Johnson.    Share what you think The comments below have not been moderated.
