Seems like every color of the rainbow was worn on the 2018 Emmys red carpet (literally, for Tiffany Haddish), and we are all for it! 

A-list stars brightened up for TV's biggest night on Monday in a variety of hues -- ruby, magenta, chartreuse yellow, seafoam blue and more -- that resulted in a thrilling, fashion-forward turnout. 

With vibrant shades being a huge trend for fall, stars weren't holding back in delivering statement-making color stories, from Trace Ellis Ross' voluminous, hot-pink number by Valentino Haute Couture to Issa Rae's custom frothy Cinderella-blue top-and-trouser set by Vera Wang. 

After seeing these gorgeous, colorful ensembles, we're inspired to start fall on a brighter note, in lieu of habitually reaching for neutrals and dark shades once temperatures start to drop. 

Such shades are set to be a huge trend well into next year, as we saw lots of it on the spring-summer 2019 runways during New York Fashion Week

Feast your eyes on the blinding beauties ahead, and check out our current favorites of brightly colored wares and accessories to channel the vibe.
