Bright pops of yellow lit up the runways at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012. This vibrant canary yellow hue is definitely a showstopper and would look stunning for a rehearsal dinner or engagement party. Let the dress be the focal point and pair it with nude or metallic heels and minimal jewlery.
