This Trend Went Viral on the Emmys Red Carpet

About halfway through the Emmy Awards red carpet tonight, there was an overwhelming trend taking over. It’s not subtle. There’s no way to miss it. It’s yellow—bright, burst-of-sunshine, neatly highlighter-marker yellow.

Of course, the trend of yellow is not new in fashion. Our community of Who What Wear readers love it, an entire generation has been tied to it, but there’s no better evidence of a major trend than at least eight stylish celebrities wearing the same color within the same red carpet event.

Ahead, see the happy-making trend that literally dominated the entire Emmys red carpet. We’re not one bit mad about it either.
