Kim Kardashian was a firecracker in red at an Oscars party

Kanye West may have his fiancee wearing a palette of black, white and grey these days, but Kim Kardashian broke the mould at Elton John's AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday night.

The reality TV star stepped up the glamour in red, opting for a plunging satin ball gown and scarlet lips to match.

Kim took to Twitter to give her fans a glimpse of her sexy look. "Sneak peek Oscar party glam Dress- Celia Kritharioti. Jewels-Lorraine Shwartz," she wrote alongside a selfie.

Also wearing red was Kim's younger sister Khloe, who sported a velvet wrap gown and a deep berry lip.

They attended the annual party with older sister Kourtney. The pretty brunette was channelling androgynous chic in a black tuxedo and white shirt with a pussybow tie.

The girls' mother Kris, meanwhile, looked just as glamorous in a dramatic black lace dress.

At the star-studded bash, the Kardashian clan rubbed shoulders with fellow famous faces Heidi Klum, Britney Spears and Karolina Kurkova.

Heidi showed off her supermodel physique in a black, sequinned and embellished strapless gown with a fishtail hemline.

Britney rocked a daring dress with a deep v-neckline and sheer panels. A black choker-style necklace added a gothic edge to the look.

Supermodel Karolina was an angelic vision in a white lace dress with sheer panels. Bright red lipstick added a splash of colour to her outfit while slicked-back hair topped off the elegant look.
