We are a month away from Spring and the stars are getting antsy for the warmer weather. The ABFF arrivals brought bold hues and spring style! There was so must fashion fabulousness on the red carpet; however, Keke Palmer stunned in a yellow Galia Lahar haute couture gown. Without a doubt, she was best dressed for the evening.

Keke Palmer loves to have fun on the red carpet and yellow is definitely her color. It was exciting to see her wear the hue again to the 2016 ABFF Awards. She wore her hair in braided glory, stating that she felt like the Queen of Zamunda from Coming to America. All jokes aside, she also took a style stand, expressing to her fans that for a long time she was not in control of what she wore and her public style.
“I felt like I represented the clothes but they weren’t representing ME! Which is what it is about, your style should be an expression OF you. It feels good to be in the driver seat with an amazing team that believes in what I’m doing.”

a. You don’t have to spend money to look great. This strappy gown is in neon yellow and has an open back with lattice detail that is sure have you looking fabulous from a 360-degree view!
b. Chiffon always gives off a look of airy “I am naturally this flawless” vibe of elegance. I love the tiered layers of this one shoulder dress. It’s perfect guest of honor for an upcoming wedding or that spring gala.
c. Sometimes a girl has to splurge and what better way to do that than with Marchesa. From Zendaya to Kerry Washington, some of your favorite “it” girls love this designer. This crisscross bodice with cutouts and cascading draped center leaves us wanting more! The best thing about this Marchesa Notte dress? It’s less than $1K!
