With St. Patrick’s Day in full swing, we’re preparing for a sea of green on the streets in keeping with the North American tradition of letting our Irish colours fly. But the hue lives on year-round on the bodies of some of the world’s most celebrated stars, who love taking the striking colour on the red carpets of some of the year’s glitziest events.
From Celine Dion's glittering Zuhair Murad creation at the 2017 GRAMMYs to Angelina Jolie’s jewel-hued gown at the 2011 Golden Globes toLupita Nyong’o’s show-stopping, strapless Dior dress at the 2014 BAFTAs, we take a look at the top 10 green dresses worn on the red carpet in honour of St Patrick’s Day.
Angelina had everyone’s attention at the Golden Globes in 2011, where the actress contrasted her rich, brown locks with an embellished, emerald-green masterpiece by Atelier Versace. While she’s usually one for black, opting for a pop of colour was a surefire way to steal the show.
At the Oscars in 2015, Scarlett Johansson opted to accent her forest-green gown with complementary jewelry – a dramatic bibbed necklace dripping in green beads. And who could forget Olivia Wilde’s body-hugging, long-sleeved Gucci number at the 2014 Golden Globes? The glowing actress was six months pregnant and looked absolutely radiant in the hue. She has since welcomed two children, Otis, 2, and five-month-old Daisy.
