It was a slow start to spring in many parts of the country. But luckily for us red-carpet watchers, the stars have brought plenty of sunshine to recent events. The beautiful, bright dresses at Cannes reminded us what a splash a yellow dress can make, and we started traveling down the (yellow-brick) road to remember how many celebs have stunned in the hue. Take a look back with us, and remember: the color is perfect for summer weddings and events.
1. Amal Clooney in Atelier Versace
Amal did the impossible—she outshone George—in an Atelier Versace gown at Cannes earlier this month.
2. Anna Kendrick in Stella McCartney
The Trolls star also chose a yellow dress—this one in a marigold hue—for her appearance at Cannes. (Insert pitch-perfect-style pun here.)
3. Michelle Williams in Vera Wang
At the 2007 Oscars, Williams stepped out to celebrate Brokeback Mountain in this saffron dress that's as indelible as the film.
4. Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
Earlier this year, Alicia nabbed an Oscar in this custom gown from the French fashion house.
5. Reese Witherspoon in Nina Ricca
Who could forget Reese's bright-yellow moment at the 2007 Golden Globes? The star debuted a new hairstyle that year, and—in an unusual step for her—rocked a short dress.
6. Renee Zellweger in Vintage Jean Desses
The 2001 Oscars was the same event that saw Bjork wearing a giant swan around her neck—but this classically glamorous look still managed to stand out.
7. Kate Hudson in 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days'
Costume designer Karen Patch created this custom look for Kate's charater Andie in the 2003 film. Spoiler alert: She did not lose the guy.
