Pink may be the unofficial color of the year, but we think there are plenty of underrated colors out there that look just as great at red carpet events — like yellow. This sunny hue can be hard to pull off, but we think that when it’s done correctly, it looks amazing. Both Kate Bosworth and Tessa Thompson recently wore yellow dresses to formal occasions, and we think they pulled their respective looks off flawlessly. Take notes, and then go shopping!

Kate Bosworth in Preen by Thornton Bregazzi

Kate Bosworth attended the premiere for National Geographic’s “Jane” in a gorgeous Preen by Thornton Bregazzi midi tulle dress. The frock featured a muted yellow color and semi-sheer fabric that looked perfect on Kate’s figure. Aside from the fun asymmetrical skirt, the sophisticated number also had thin,  crystal-embellished thin straps that dangled down the back of the dress, giving the appearance of built-in jewelry. The actress matched the look with thin dangling earrings and a pair of crystal embellished ‘Harmony Crystal’ heels from Giuseppe Zanotti.
