One budding actress is having a major moment in the sartorial spotlight while in the midst of a promotional tour for her upcoming film, Fantastic Four. In a recent appearance at the Apple Store in New York City's Soho neighborhood, Kate Mara donned a red Dior mini dress that sizzled to the very top of her style game. Seriously, the actress has never looked better. High-fashion clearly suits her well.

The 32-year-old's red hot Dior mini featured an asymmetrical vested silhouette lined with oversized matching red buttons that emanated an old Hollywood glam feel. The coolest part? She layered the frock with a pair of nude leather shorts that just slightly peeked out from underneath the bottom of the dress. The unexpected combination looked insanely chic.

The actress' newly-debuted pixie was styled beautifully with a deep side part, and her makeup was fresh and dewy. Topped off with some nude point toe pumps and dainty stud earrings, I think we have got a major style win on our hands here. 

The little red number serves as a great alternative for the classic (and slightly overdone) LBD, especially for summertime. When temperatures skyrocket to over 90 degrees, the last thing you want to do is wear all black. I'll definitely be drawing some colorful inspiration from Mara's latest look.
