There was a wash of beautiful block colours worked on the red carpet last night - playful, bold and stand out seemed to be the three rules the celebrity style elite were following. We’ve picked some of our favourite paint pot beauties from the highstreet to help you work a little primary colour into your wardrobe.

Go green


Mum - to - be Olivia, and the ever glam, Helen Mirren worked dazzling embellished greens last night, whilst Reese kept it simple in a figure hugging number.

Dorothy perkins £26 and Topshop £46

Perfect for most skin tones, green works beautifully with metallic accessories and blue hues. Avoid working your greens with red tones though, as it can all look a little bit festive!

Mellow Yellow

These ladies definitely wanted to get notcied last night!

‘Girls’ star, Lena Dunham and ‘Big Bang Theory’ beauty, Melissa Rauch both stood out from the corwd last night in gorgeous, off shoulder yellow dresses.

Miss Selfridge £39 and River Island £45

Although it can seem a little bit daunting, zesty hues can be easier to wear than you’d think. It can be a little harsh on very pale skin tones – but Lena proves you don’t need a tan to pull it off. Keep accessories neutral to give your dress a chic feel, and orangey lip colours will match up brilliantly.

Ladies in Red

The Golden Globes saw a lot of ladies in red yesterday.

Emma Watson, Amy Adams and ’12 Years a Slave’ star, Lupita Nyong’o all opted for a flash of scarlet for the red carpet. An all time wardrobe classic, this stunning shade is perfect for most occasions and works beautifully with all hair colours brilliantly.

Topshop £46 and Motel £45

Match up your little red number with plain black accessories or a flash of shiny gold for a Hollywood worthy finish.
