Many Hues? Make Sure it’s Sleek
Fireworks, indeed. Candy hues play nicely in Katy Perry’s formfitting Fausto Puglisi dress. Even her smooth hair seems to have gotten the memo that bright shades look best in sleek shapes.
The craziest color schemes only work if you keep it tight. So forgo anything tented, draped or loose, opting instead for a slim-fitting style like Emmy Rossum’s Etro colorblock cocktail dress.
Scuba styling and shocking shades in one dress? Only if the fit is slim and sleek like on Adrienne Bailon -- and the venue is decidedly after-dark.
Our First Lady Michelle Obama really does know all the fashion rules, doesn’t she? By keeping her aqua-and-tangerine ensemble trim and slim, she looks pretty -- not overpowered by color.
