The Golden Globes are the laid-back prelude to the Oscars. While the big wins tonight will undoubtedly set the tone for the upcoming awards shows, everyone has a little more fun with the ceremony. Plus, you get double the celebrity sightings, since the year's biggest film stars are sharing air time with your favorite television actors. So, we tend to see more fashion risks at the Globes: Julianna Margulies in an ankle-skimming gown, Emma Stone in a bedazzled jumpsuit, Lorde in a crop top. More importantly, it's easier for you to steal the big red carpet trends when it's not all ball gowns and Louboutins. This year, the standout was not a silhouette, but a color — a canary yellow reminiscent of some of our favorite spring runway moments.
Three stars were clearly paying attention: Jenna Dewan-Tatum (in Carolina Herrera), Naomi Watts (in Gucci), and Leslie Mann (in KaufmanFranco) graced the red carpet in the hue we first saw at Fashion Week. Michael Kors' bright bouquet skirts brought new life to spring florals, while the same eye-popping yellow brightened the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection. We saw the color again at Karen Walker and Missoni — and, now, at the Golden Globes. The best part? The red carpet MVP (most valuable palette) easily fits into your day-to-day — especially for your string of upcoming spring events. Ahead, get a jump-start on this season's bright-yellow dresses — for every style and budget.
