Could this also mean "This red dress is too big"?

Right, but I was asking about a possible colloquial use.

Why is this "este" and not "esto"?

"vestido" is a masculin noun, "este" is the masculin form of "this". If you don't know the gender, use "esto" - That is big / Esto es grande

When I do "these shoes" on duolingo, it uses esto and not este; is it different when plural ?

Yes.

this, ungendered sing = esto

this, masc sing = este

these, ungend AND masc pl = ESTOS

this, fem sing = esta

these, fem pl = estas

that, ungen =eso

that masc = ese

those, ungendered AND masc = ESOS

that, fem = esa

those, fem = esas
