Velvet is synonymous with rich hues, opulence, and usually, winter. However just last week, Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima and Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan stepped out onto the red carpet wearing velvet–specifically, velvet shade of yellow and gold. Fellow Angel Lily Aldridge followed suit when she chose a mustard-hued velvet dress from the burgeoning New York label Khaite. During a time when young Hollywood tend to step out in bright happy florals, it was a pleasant surprise to see these three style heavyweights take a chance with a bold color, rich fabric, and sexy silhouettes.
