Trend Spotting: Celebs Brighten Up Red Carpet With Neon! (PHOTOS)
In the world of fashion, designers, stylists, and celebs are always trying to find something new and exciting to bring to the red carpets. While bright neon colors were huge in the '80s, they are making a big comeback in a modern way.
Last year, bright colors were popping up all over the runway in many designers’ Spring/Summer and Resort collections. Now that the trend has finally caught on, it has progressed to be one of the most prominent of the upcoming year.
Every big-name designer from Chanel to Valentino to Prada has included neon pieces in their recent collections. And this past September, there were even some collections that featured a majority of neon looks like Nanette Lepore and Christian Siriano.
Of course, fashion divas like Nicki Minaj have always rocked neons, but recently, other stars like Kristin Cavallari, Blake Lively, Kourtney Kardashian, and Gwyneth Paltrow have been spotted in short, bright dresses at VIP events.
Screen sirens Natalie Portman and Kirsten Dunst were seen wearing neon blue to different award shows and celebs Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lawrence, Diane Kruger, and Brooklyn Decker have all popped in long pink gowns on the red carpet. Even if red carpeting doesn’t exactly coordinate with neon pink, that didn’t stop these stars from successfully trying the trend.
The neon trend not only applies to fashion, but to beauty as well. Try a hot pink or coral lip like Emma Stone, Emily Blunt, and Kelly Osbourne to instantly kick your look up to the next level. To really make a statement, go for neon hair like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga do so “naturally”.
Even as the weather is starting to change, neons will continue to be popular throughout the winter for those who are not afraid to stand out in a crowd. Are you brave enough for this trend? Is it too crazy for you? Play fashion critic in the comments!
