Dorothy’s heels must be clicking. If recent events like the Academy Awards and the NAACP Image Awards are any indication, stars are heading somewhere over the rainbow in gowns that span the color spectrum. ”They want lavender. They want ice blue. They want lemon yellow,” says designer Pamela Dennis, who thinks the rage for shiny satin may be fueling the trend. The brightness cheers NBC correspondent Giselle Fernandez, who wore orange to the People’s Choice Awards: ”Color has always been considered very ethnic or bold. To me, it’s an expression that you are alive. Wearing black and white all the time is limiting.” But the passion for vivid fashion could also be completely calculated. Says Susan Ashbrook, the Los Angeles consultant for designer Herve Leger, ”Publicists are seeing that unless their clients are Michelle Pfeiffer, they aren’t photographed in black.”
