After a run of summer LBDs, celebs are finally brightening up the red carpet with citrus hues.

Orange, tangerine, coral… call them what you will; finally celebs are taking inspiration from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Alberta Ferretti, Jean Paul Gaultier and Jill Stuart’s Spring 2012 runway shows to rock this bold, bright colour on the red carpet.

Victoria Beckham, Kristin Davis, Ashley Greene and Leslie Mann have all been successful in pulling off this hue in a variety of silhouettes from figure-hugging to fit-and-flare.

If you are apprehensive about wearing orange, break up the colour a bit with a nude belt or work the look à la Solange Knowles by adding bold accessories to offset the colour slightly.

Brighter colours in hues like red-orange and tangerine often work best.

I love orange. I have an orange Equipment shirt and an orange DVF dress, which I love to mix with other bold colours and prints.

Are you a fan of this trend?
