We’re still on a fashion high from this weekend’s Oscars. Although the red carpet looks caused tons of buzz, the looks from Vanity Fair’s fete were just as good, if not better. For some reason, afterparty attire is always better than the outfits spied at the main event.

Both events produced noteworthy trends that we will likely see in the following weeks. With the Grammys right around the corner and the Met Gala a little over a month away, these looks are a prelude to what we can expect. We’ve seen the starlets dominate bright pink hues over the last couple of weeks, but this time around, they stepped it up a notch with bolder, more vibrant colors. That’s just one of the many trends we spotted on the red carpet.

Over the last couple of days I’ve heard people say the color yellow was made for Black people, and I can’t help but agree with that statement. During Beyonce’s performance at the Oscars, the superstar wowed everyone in a neon yellow ensemble by David Koma. Melanin and neon anything equals perfection.
