Looks like one of the hottest new trends for spring is yellow dresses. Kate Middleton, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson each have worn a swoon-worthy yellow dress recently. Whether floor-length or made of leather, each woman rocked her own version of the yellow dress. Here are their gorgeous looks. Which is your favorite?

This yellow dress trend also allows me to post a photo of one of my all-time favorite red carpet dresses: Reese Witherspoon in Nina Ricci at the 2007 Golden Globes.
Every awards season I always find myself swooning over Marchesa dresses. They are always the most intricate, most beautiful gowns on the red carpet. Sadly, they also have a price tag around $4,000. Spending that much for a dress is simply not happening in my lifetime. (Unless, of course, the novel I haven’t even begun writing becomes a huge blowout success and a movie is made out of it and for some reason I’m nominated for an Oscar for ‘Best Book to Become a Movie’… THEN maybe I’ll drop four grand on a dress. It could happen.)
Anyway, much to my delight, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig released a lower end line several years ago called Notte by Marchesa. The dresses are in the $700 range and still kinda out of my range but they just seem more attainable at that price point. Here are a few dresses from the line. What do you think?
(Note: For some reason, all these models are in ridiculous poses. Don’t let that sway your opinions of the gorgeous dresses they’re wearing.)
