We'd love to see First Lady Michelle Obama rock this hot yellow number, a sharp twist from the designer who's known for offering a timeless, highly refined red carpet look. This season, he took inspiration from a graffiti artist, and the added edge is one of his boldest moves yet.

Almost more difficult than red and green with Christmas, it's nearly impossible to put these two colors together and not make the model look like a giant bumble bee. And yet the evening gown maker adds black lace to a cadmium yellow dress effortlessly.
