Nicole Richie's pick: Yellow
“I don’t think there’s one color that’s flattering on everybody. I think you’ve got to find that one color and go with it. I love yellow on me. People hate yellow, but I love it.”

Antonio Berardi's pick: Flame red
“I like flame red, and red is not an easy color. But it enlivens a person — it’s hot and it's sassy and it's sexy. It's something we always use and it's something that people always want.”

Rachel Roy's pick: Yellow
“Colors are very personal. Everyone has a strength in different colors. I know some blonds don’t like yellow, but I love yellow on blonds. One of my favorite moments was Gwyneth Paltrow in a yellow dress of mine.”

Christian Siriano's pick: Fuchsia
“I love fuchsia. I think fuchsia looks great on dark skin, light skin, if you’re tan, not tan.”
