Celeb Style Poll: Who Looked Nicest In Neon?

I have very specific neon associations, related to the rise and demise of electroclash music in the early aughts. (Don’t pretend like you weren’t also all up in the club in pointy hot pink kitten heels. I saw you!) So I still tend to shy away from neons — I can’t deal with the Ladytron flashbacks. Howevs, neon has been all over the place lately, as evidenced by the many celebs spotted proudly wearing bright, bold neon tones. Here we have (from left to right) Jennifer Garner, Paula Patton, Hilary Duff, and Reese Witherspoon, all adding a bit of electric brightness to their wardrobes. But who wore it best?

On the one hand, Rita Ora’s neon sweatsuit looks so comfortable that I’m kind of jealous I’m not wearing it right now. On the other hand, she paired it with red lipstick and high heels, which totally defeats the purpose of a super comfortable sweatsuit. But on the third, most important hand (I only bring out my secret third hand for very important occasions), despite the fancy accessories, she’s still wearing a neon sweatsuit in public.

Seems ridiculous, I know, but neon nail polish is illegal to produce in the United States. That doesn’t mean you’ll get ticketed for wearing it (if you get your grubby hands on some, that is). It just means that your neon polishes are going to come import-only. For now.

“Neon polish is actually illegal to produce in the US,” says Jan Arnold, co-founder and creative director of CND Colours. “So if you see a neon shade in the store, it’s imported—or your polish hue is just really bright, not a true neon, making it easier to pull off.” If you insist on being USA all the way, by all means, stick to bright non-neon shades like bumble bee yellow or bold orange reds.

Nicki Minaj has rocked some pretty imaginative looks, none of which I would commit to wearing myself, so this will be a first: I’m kind of loving the long, crazy-voluminous light green hair she’s sporting in the video for her latest song, “Starships.” My Little Pony-inspired hair has been literally everywhere for the past year or so, some interpretations more successful than others, so her neon hue isn’t that much of a departure from what’s on trend. This is such an eye-catching look, I can’t help but picture it on my head. With my pale skin, it would probably send me straight into Beetlejuice territory, but maybe it’s worth a shot… What do you think? Have I lost my mind, or is this something about this verdigris strangely appealing? [Just Jared]

Yesterday, I wandered into the Gap and was instantly blinded by the array of brilliantly bright items they had for sale. Seriously, does anything snap you out of the haze a cloudy and cold day can bring as well as a shock of neon? This is what I told myself as I bought the first two items in this slideshow. Cheer up your own wardrobe this winter with a dose of neon (or bright sorbet or whatever you want to call these eye-catching shades), why don’t you?
