We love the brights trend and we love the women who dare to wear the shades even more. The Met Gala had its fair share of examples and some of the stars scored top marks and made it to the best-dressed list. Like Solange Knowles in a sunshine, peplum Rachel Roy gown. Or Emma Roberts who also wore a semi-peplum Escada number, only in a color that comes between orange and yellow. Katherine McPhee was also part of our best-dressed roll call, wearing a stunning Elie Saab tangerine column.
Some celebrities also made it to out fashion-forward list, wearing ensembles that are risky and not cut-and-dry. January Jones was on the list wearing a neon yellow, futuristic looking Versace gown. Taking the time capsule way back, was Kirsten Dunst who wore a pumpkin colored Rodarte number that looked like it was from the ’40’s. Sadly, landing up on our worst-dressed list was Eva Mendes who wore a terrific punchy shade of orange, but the Prada peplum gown itself was downright frumpy on her. Rounding up this brights post are Ginnifer Goodwin and Kristen Bell, both wearing tangerine. Ginnifer wore a lovely cap-sleeved Monique Lhuillier, while Kristen chose a Tommy Hilfiger halter-necked version which she rocked. See for yourselves!
This is going to be a long list, folks, so get some popcorn ready. There was so much material to choose from, from this year’s Met Gala that we drove ourselves into a tizzy. We weren’t ever fans of, say, peplum (gowns with an overskirt), but Solange Knowles‘ sunshine-yellow Rachel Roy number made us fans. Keeping up the bright trend was Katharine McPhee whose low-cut, unforgiving tangerine Elie Saab column was stunning. Emma Roberts wore a brighter shade of orange, and also incorporated peplum in her gorgeous Escada strapless gown. Moving toward red territory was a surprise entry: Chelsea Clinton. She wowed us in a cherry, lace-overlay strapless gown, and she totally needs to reveal who the designer is.
Other fab outfits were worn by Ashley Greene who picked a dreamy, Grecian Donna Karan gown and Amy Adams, who also wore white Giambattista Valli, with a cheeky gold bow detail at the waist. It was completely old Hollywood glamour. Another one of our red carpet favorites choosing that vibe was Amber Heard, a knockout in a dusty rose Zac Posen fishtail. The Glee gals represented and chose completely different looks. Dianna Agron went for elegant, romantic glamour in an emerald green Carolina Herrera gown. while Lea Michele picked a sexy, slashed navy blue Diane von Furtsenberg dress.
Our picks for best-dressed also include supermodel Jessica Stam wearing a pastel blue, almost gladiator-esque John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress number with gold detailing, and Hilary Swank in a burgundy, halter-necked Michael Kors gown. There are a total of 16 looks to choose from in our gallery below, so check them all out, and tell us whose gown you like best.
