Looking for a way to make a statement at your next shindig? Look no further than a bright yellow dress inspired by these stylish stars. Fan BingBing wore a solid citron Louis Vuitton dress with long sleeves and square details at the hips to the Sidaction Gala. Jada Pinkett-Smith stood out in a figure-skimming buttery yellow Victoria Beckham dress with python heels for an appearance on ABC’s Katie. Laura Whitmore looked beautiful in a beaded Rachel Gilbert halter gown at the National Television Awards. Take a cue from her and style your yellow with a golden clutch. At the Elle Women in Television event, actress Willa Holland wore a fringed yellow flapper dress—also by Stella McCartney—that you may recognize because Kylie Minogue also wore it recently. Kate Mara turned heads at the House of Cards premiere in a Christian Dior dress with a high-low hem, styled with a contrasting purple clutch and an eye-catching collar necklace.

You don’t have to go head-to-toe yellow to wear a lemony look this season—just add a punchy yellow piece or accessory to brighten up a winter look. As if she needed to wear a bright color to stand out, Miranda Kerr left an impression at Whole Foods in a yellow Stella McCartney blazer worn over a patterned Erdem top with a white Rag & Bone skirt and nude pumps. Solange Knowles added an even more vibrant touch to her multi-patterned Alberta Ferretti coat and Miu Miu suit with a neon yellow circle scarf while heading to her performance at XOYO in London. At the Chanel show during Couture Week, Hailee Steinfeld threw a fresh note into her prim and preppy look with the designer’s yellow resin ‘Boy Bag’. Nikki Reed rocked a very wearable mustard top, skinny jeans and a gold necklace at the Gilette Kiss & Tell event—do like the Twilight actress and pair the sunny hue with contrasting black.
