Move over millennial pink, there’s a new hot hue in town and stars are loving it. It’s bright canary, a shade we’re calling “Gen Z Yellow,” and it’s catching on like wildfire. In fact, everyone from Gigi Hadid to Renee Zellweger to Blake Lively have waved goodbye to soft blush tones in favor dresses, coats and monochrome ensembles in the cheerful color on the red carpet. Stylish is ready to call it: the sunny hue is about to take over everything from your Instagram feed to your closet. See how the stars are rocking vibrant yellow!

The icon rocked the sunny and cheerful hue in an elaborate asymmetrically hemmed skirt with a high slit and a dramatically gathered waistline. What does one pair with a bottom so unique?
