Get out your sunglasses—the stars are lighting up the red carpet with dresses in every shade from purple to well, red. No longer reserved for the most daring of dressers, style icons like Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron have stolen the spotlight in their eye-catching hues. Whether draped in ultra violet, primary green or color of the year tangerine, these vibrant designs have made us turn and take serious notice!

These ladies had us seeing red and loving it! From Taylor Swift's scorching number to Nicole Richie's draped Stella McCartney design, scarlet proved as versatile as it was bold. Doing Valentino proud were Rooney Mara and Michelle Williams who reminded us why red is the label's signature shade.

Hot, hot, hot! Jennifer Husdson worked the color of the year as did Gwyneth Paltrow in a slinky Lanvin number, Jennifer Lopez in 3.1 Phillip separates and Cameron Diaz in a curve-hugging Victoria Beckham gown. With so many ladies in the color, the real question is, who isn't wearing tangerine?

Camilla Belle

swept into the room like a ray of sunshine in Carolina Herrera's gown. Nikki Reed's take on the vibrant trend was short and sweet thanks to Jenni Kayne's billowy design. Of a more similar mind were Elizabeth Olsen and Charlize Theron whose contoured Pucci and Stella McCartney designs featured floral embroidery.

Emma Stone's

printed Jason Wu keyhole gown was worthy of envy, and Elie Saab practically owned the hue with Nina Dobrev, Zoe Saldana and Jessica Chastain's trifecta of vibrant emerald dresses.

Whether worn head-to-toe as Lea Michele did in Peter Som, or cutout and curvy like Jennifer Lawrence's Viktor & Rolf, cobalt shined bright this season. Demonstrating this color's range, Berenice Bejo sparkled in Elie Saab's pretty sequin number, while Victoria Beckham's take on her label's fitted sheath was a more militant approach.

In a word: pretty! Ashley Greene worked her figure in a sleek DKNY design, as did Mila Kunis and Maria Sharapova who sported a pair of Prabal Gurung's electric violet designs. Like the Black Swan star, Sofia Vergara worked a lacy version of the trend courtesy of Missoni.
