Fashion Smashion: Brights

If they're not already, sunglasses are about to become your can't-live-without accessory for summer - if only to look at the frocks! Acid brights are HUGE at the moment, with saturated hues spotted on many fashion-forward celebs.Will you embrace the rainbow?

Ooh, lovely! I am loving a pop of brights contrasted against nude tones. Yumm!

You know what? I don't reeeeeally like any of these. I'm not into brights or dresses much -- even though my Mother is always hassling me about wearing both.


Luckily I'm almost 35 huh!

Posh, oh Posh. Super thin on purpose, I just think she was a whole world of sexier before she twiggied her way down so far.

I like Maria's ensemble, I think the bright hues really compliment an olive complexion. And I think the purple dress is stunning, shame about poor old Posh and her twig-like appearance.

Oh no, do you not like Nicky's dress? I thought it was quite cute! Not very sophis, but quite fun and summery (if you have some killer tanned pins - hers look VERY dark, too much fake tan, or just the shadows?!).

I feel really out of touch, I have no idea who Jessica Stroup or Jennifer Morrison or Maria Menounos are! Will have to get googling

Will I embrace the rainbow? But Maria Mwhoever-she-is is looking good.

Renee Z, haven't we seen that same neckline every appearance since the day dot? ZzzzzzzZZZZZzzzZZZzzzzz....

Eco-Chic-Mummy, it could be my distaste of anything Hilton clouding my judgement on this one...or perhaps it's because her dress reminds me of a rather tragic terry towelling playsuit I had when I was 12...or maybe, it's the clunky black accessories. Agree on the fun and summery, just doesn't quite ring my bell...xox

Totally with you Amanda.
I saw a girl wearing that dress today! It's really cute in persons.
