Happy Wednesday!
So as you may know, I love the color yellow!
And while pale yellow is the perfect summer go to–complementing many skin tones and brightening up any look–the winter calls for a richer, deeper shade that I’ll call marigold.
The color–a mixture of yellow, gold, and mustard–has been popping up on celebrities of late, whether on the red carpet or out and about.
Let’s take a look:
Beauties Vanessa Williams and Rachel Roy both literally light up formal events in strapless deep yellow frocks….


Celeb party girls Nicole Richie…

and Kim Kardashian….
…make the look club ready in thigh skimming, body clinging dresses.
The look can be adapted for work by throwing on a fitted jacket like Vanessa Simmons…
…or winterized with a long wool jacket, a la Meagan Good…
..it’s a good look.
