While the color authorities at Pantone predicted 2012 to be a year filled with tangerine orange in the fashion world, celebrities have gone in a much sunnier direction. By the end of Q1, it seems yellow is one of the most popular red carpet choices, with stars like Ahna O’ReillyElizabeth BanksNicole Richie, and Gabrielle Union being just a few of those who chose the eye-popping hue. We love how this lemon shade works on all skin tones and can immediately brighten up your face without washing you out. Of course, this color is a head-turner, so if you want to make an impression, consider wearing it head-to-toe. Or, if you don’t want to be a walking ray of light, go for a more subtle look with a single piece, like a skirt, blouse, shoes, or bangle. Tell us: Do you like to wear yellow?
