Amanda Seyfried stepped out at night in NYC fusing three primary colors, which resulted in a perfect retro-chic ensemble to mimic any time of year. The actress layered a powder-blue coat over a marigold sheath dress, then slipped on a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps ($625) to balance her colorful pairing. Amanda then upped the glam factor with a red mini Céline tote, sleek ponytail, and red lipstick. Get inspired by this trio of colors by working a light blue coat, yellow dress, and red bag for a holiday soiree or go casual with these mustard Current/Elliott skinny jeans ($125, originally $178), this peplum Alice + Olivia top ($198) and a pair of red pumps.
As the star of the new movie, Fun Size, we would expect nothing less than a dazzling dress from Victoria Justice, and the actress didn't disappoint working a stunning yellow Versace number for the LA premiere. She styled her single structured peplum mini with black suede pointed pumps and teardrop earrings, then sprinkled a dash of contrasting color via red lipstick and matching nail polish. Peplum was a huge trend this year, but we particularly like the unique structure of Victoria's sunny sheath. Work a yellow peplum dress with black suede pumps and red accents to nail Victoria's glam-girl look.
On her way into David Letterman's studios in NYC, Anna Kendrick showed off a beautiful one-shoulder yellow satin Halston Heritage dress, which she tamed with a pair of nude peep-toe platform pumps and these Dana Rebecca yellow diamond earrings ($1,870). While many Fall pieces tend to be moody in color, we think Anna's dress is the perfect way to light up any Fall wedding or any other special event you'll be going to this season. To make it Fall-appropriate, you can pair your sunny dress with a serious statement necklace and gunmetal or pewter footwear. Inspired by Anna, we handpicked a few yellow and chartreuse dresses below, so shop your favorites now.
Freida Pinto was spotted on the streets of NYC in a look-at-me-now yellow Rachel Roy dress, which she tamed with a navy blazer. Then she amped things way up via pink Roger Vivier flats ($606), a colorful Roger Vivier snakeskin bag, and gray round cat-eye Tory Burch shades ($150). There's no doubt about it, Freida has been on a hot fashion streak while promoting her new movie Trishna, and while we love her on the red carpet, we are particularly taken with this spunky street ensemble. Channel Freida's vibrant style with a bright-yellow dress, navy blazer, her exact pink flats, Tory Burch sunglasses, and a colorful bag.
The 2012 Met Gala brought out some mega stunners from designers like Prada, Givenchy, and Dolce & Gabbana, but two ladies — Solange Knowles and January Jones — outshone in their yellow gowns. Solange opted for a strapless yellow custom-made Rachel Roy creation with a sweet peplum detail, which she paired up with a sparkly Edie Parker clutch, while January chose a futuristic Versace with a bustier bodice. Don't ask us to choose which one we love more because both took our breath away! Inspired by Solange and January's spotlight-worthy yellow gowns, we set out to find equally stunning yellow dresses you'll want to wear all Spring and Summer.

After lusting after Phillip Lim's Spring-perfect vertical-striped tops and Rebecca Minkoff's easy separates on the Spring runways, we noticed a distinct common denominator — one seriously cool color combo. Designers juxtaposed soft shades of yellow against slick neutral tones for a refined vibrancy effect, and we'd be lying if we said this pairing didn't strike us as particularly Easter-hue friendly, too. To add to our current crush status, starlets like Elizabeth Olsen and Kate Bosworth have been spotted sporting the look, proving this color combo is not only gorgeous, but totally wearable too. Case in point: Kate sparkled in a cream yellow Prada number, complete with darker yellow and neutral-toned jewel accents, at the premiere of L!fe Happens, while Elizabeth made a case for a more decadent version in Emilio Pucci's embellished minidress at the Critics' Choice Awards. We love the way the colors add both a dash of bright and a side of subtlety — a striking color scheme worth wearing this Spring.

Red, nude, and gold may have dominated the dress color spectrum at the Met's Costume Institute Gala last night, but two women were notable for their minimal, but boldly hued dresses. Brooklyn Decker chose a hot pink Michael Kors dress with long sleeves and a deep slit, while Zoe Saldana chose a strapless yellow Calvin Klein gown. On a night where excess and fanciful details ruled, these women made a statement in their sartorial restraint. Who wore minimal best?
On tour to promote her book, My Father's Daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow chose a bright yellow Rachel Roy dress to complement her glowy skin and tousled blond locks. While we couldn't be more jealous of how well she pulls off such a bright color, we're also generally just happier looking her. Yellow will do that to you! With that said, we think you should try wearing yellow this Spring and Summer, so we found not only yellow dresses, but tops, pants, lingerie, and some fine accessories in case you only want a small burst of sunshine in your outfit.
