Move over black and white: In 2014, ROYGBIV was having a moment! The past year has been packed with some incredible red-carpet looks in every color on the wheel, which is why the trend took the top spot on our annual Style 100 roundup in InStyle’s December issue. The spectrum of shades that hit hit the streets helped brighten our mood over the past twelve moths, from Kate Middleton’s yellow Roksanda Ilincic frock to Sandra Bullock’s green Lanvin piece and Reese Witherspoon’s indigo Dolce & Gabbana minidress.

The color story of the year? All of them! Follow the rainbow from beginning to end, starting with Anne Hathaway in a red Calvin Klein Collection number and ending with Claire Danes in violet Oscar de la Renta dress.
