Ever since I was a wee one, I’ve always been enchanted by bold POPS of color.  This year, Gucci brought me back to my Crayolas with their genius Spring 2011 collection. 

Creative director Frida Giannini told Vogue that while shooting a campaign in Moroccan, she came across jewelry that would soon inspire the striking looks worn by Olivia Wilde, Camille Belle, Kim Kardashian and Kerry Washington.  The collection, according to Vogue’s review, is “northern African culture seen from afar through the prism of Gucci.”

Other designers followed suit by putting out looks with every color of the rainbow.  The result: SO. MUCH. COLOR.

Check out the ladies and their jewel-toned threads in our gallery and let us know who wore their bright colors the best.
