Who knew the trend for spring was launched way back on that chilly January evening when Reese Witherspoon glammed up the Golden Globes in a yellow Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci dress? Since March the sunny shade has been the go-to color for the most fashionable red-carpet dwellers. As Witherspoon’s stylish alter ego Elle Woods might say, ”Yellow is, like, totally the new pink.”
