When Reese Witherspoon hit the red carpet at the Golden Globes in this canary-yellow Nina Ricci dress and fresh hairstyle, she announced her new image. Likewise, it established this sunny hue as the unexpected color of the year, regardless of the season.
Yes, the Chopard diamonds were lovely-but how refreshing to see Angelina Jolie in a bright lemon confection from Ungaro.
Yigal Azrouel designed this strapless bubble dress, which was a marvelous choice by the actress for a summertime event with the year's uber-popular wedge sandal.
The silver accents on this lemon one-shoulder cut by John Galliano for Dior created a modern take on a traditional sari.
This Michael Kors mini looked sweet and sassy, especially with the addition of pockets.
Eva Longoria Parker
The beauty of yellow: it strikes a playful chord and looks great with equally eye-popping shoes, which is how Eva Longoria Parker wore her mini by Gustavo Cadile.
Oscar de la Renta designed a stunning play on floral by leaving the foliage black and white to dramatically bloom against the yellow canvas.
Yellow doesn't just have to be short and fun, as proven by this Dolce & Gabbana gown worn by Eva Mendes. A long, flowing dress can be dramatically glamorous and sophisticated.
When accessorizing, black may be basic, but it also works well with a bold daffodil frock, like this by Tommy Hilfiger.
This Alice + Olivia dress combines elements to create the perfect girlie dress: short bubble hem, empire waist and playful bright yellow color.
