At the Critics’ Choice Awards gorgeous shades of vivid yellow were the real winners of the day.
All with sweet yellow accents – Diane Kruger in Prada; Elle Fanning in Rodarte; Elizabeth Olsen in Emilio Pucci; and Ahna O’Reilly in Honor –brightened the red carpet like little rays of sunshine.
And for Spring / Summer 2012 yellow is here to stay. In fact, it is one of the key power players. Perfect in little doses – accentuating your look with a picture perfect yellow clutch (see below) or why not unlock a high impact vault of sunlight with head-to-toe yellow.
Some Friday Sunshine Inspiration…
Will you add a little ray of sunshine to your wardrobe? xx

Nothing looks as chic as white on the red carpet.
White is fresh, sophisticated and youthful. It looks amazing on any skin colour and body shape. When done correctly, white definitely makes a fashion statement!
In the last week, several highly fashionable ladies have worn white with effortless style and finesse. Choosing white dresses from some of my favourite designer houses – from Valentino to Dior and Pucci. I was especially thrilled to see Kate Bosworth wearing a look from Jil Sander’s S/S11 collection. The crisp white tee and long mint coloured skirt are so divine! Kate Bosworth’s red carpet style is beyond words! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
>> Michelle Williams’ mini dress by Dior is ultra sweet! William’s wore white to the premiere of her film Blue Valentine.
>> Kate Bosworth was perfection in Jil Sander
>> Jessica Alba wore Valentino to the premiere of Little Fockers in New York.
>> Gwyneth Paltrow chose Monique Lhuillier while receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
>> Lea Michele wore The Row at the Hollywood Style Awards.
>> For the X Factor final Dannii Minogue sparkled in Jenny Packham. (Ok I know this technically isn’t white – but this dress is so gorgeous it needed to be included)
>> Making the list for the second time this week, Gwyneth Paltrow wore Pucci.
