yeah, they were all yellow

There's a fashion myth out there that blondes can't wear yellow. I grew up believing this, and consequently hated the color for years because of it (I'm a very petty person, you see). It wasn't until I got a yellow tea dress from Topshop earlier this year that I realized blondes actually look great in yellow. Amazing. Fantastic. I was a bit in love with my reflection, to be honest. 
I think yellow is a real summer color; it reminds me of the sun and warmth. Since summer is coming to an end, fall fashion (meaning a carte blanche to wear as much black and as many layers as I can!) is right around the corner. I say we wear yellow as much as we can -- after all, we won't have a proper chance again until next year.  

Brigitte Bardot can do no wrong

Paul and Linda McCartney chose yellow on their wedding day

French New Wave actress and pop singer Chantal Goya in several different hues

Debbie Harry is a true 'Blondie' with yellow hair and yellow clothes

Ann-Margret and Elvis are kind of the ultimate duo in Viva Las Vegas

Eva Mendes loves yellow. I love Eva Mendes. Therefore, I love yellow. 

Fifties icons Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor

Yé-yé singer France Gall even wore her signature knee socks in yellow 

Like mother, like daughter - Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson both wear yellow

Whip It! girls Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page

She may have been 'too pure for pink,' but Olivia Newton John's Sandy was perfect for yellow in Grease

Jane Fonda looking amazing, as per usual

Françoise Hardy is always ridiculously cool

Jean Shrimpton models a variety of styles

Always Marianne Faithfull. Always

I'm pretty sure the photo of Mischa Barton second to the right is of her when she was like 17 or 18 years old, and even though I'm a few years older than that, I've never looked that cool

Models (top row) Lauren Hutton and Marisa Berenson, Brooke Shields, Anjelica Huston, (bottom row) Peggy Moffitt, Penelope Tree, Nastassja Kinski

Natalie Wood always looked beautiful, in yellow or otherwise

Modern-day stylish folks Isabel Lucas, Zhang Ziyi, Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Nicole Richie, Kate Moss and Susie Lau

Rita Hayworth, with red hair and yellow clothes

Whether a bombshell or a flower child, Sharon Tate always looked beautiful

Shelley Duvall's character in Robert Altman's film 3 Women really loved yellow

Sonny and Cher, killin' it

The variety of yellow clothes Twiggy modeled complimented her blonde hair 

It's not a DRG style list without a bit of Veruschka 

Britt Ekland masters that whole doe-eyed innocent-but-extremely-sexy thing 

Michelle Williams at the 2006 Oscars is one of my all-time favorite looks ever

Jan Smithers, Belle de Jour's Catherine Deneuve, Mia Farrow getting a trim from Vidal Sassoon, Sylvie Vartan, Bebe Buell, That Girl's Marlo Thomas, Mireille Darc from Godard's Week End and Cynthia Lennon

for a "cute and sweet" look, you could wear a bright yellow dress or top with a collar and cap sleeves.
