Pantone announced the deep wine hue as the 2015 color to beat, but these 10 boldfacers have a sartorial palette that's ahead of the curve

It may have just officially had its moment in the sun as the Pantone color of 2015, but marsala has already been shining darkly in the klieg lights over the last year. Yes, the folks at the Color Institute survey the coming season's catwalks and starlets get in on that action earlier than most. And this isn't maroon's first rodeo. However, a slew of leading ladies have worn their wine-dyed gowns proudly ahead of the curve and their stylists deserve props (bonuses?). 

Take a rust-tinged tour of our esteemed gobsmackers below.

 

KYLIE JENNER 

At the American Music Awards, Kylie Jenner incorporated last year's color, Emerald Green, in her ombre locks and 2015's hue with her edgified Alexander Vauthier slip dress. We're calling this the ideal statement-maker mashup.

 

BLAKE LIVELY

Blake Lively complemented the Cannes red carpet swimmingly in her leg-exposing Gucci.

 

KARLIE KLOSS

In another sparkling Cannes momentKarlie Kloss laced up in an eccentric (and not without controversy) Valentino. In our opinion, this Victoria's Secret Angel scored her wings.

 

KATIE HOLMES

Regal is the first word that comes to mind when rating Katie Holmes' Zac Posen frock for the Tribeca Film Festival. The geometric waistline and shoulder exposure morph it from geriatric to va-va-voom.

 

ELLE FANNING

Don't forget that marsala makes a fab accent color, as evidenced by Elle Fanning in Wes Gordon at our very own Power Stylists Luncheon. Think of it as a wine-pairing to an excellent meal.

 

AMY ADAMS

Amy Adams was camouflaged by the Golden Globes' rouge rug until that upper-plunge of 2015's color came to the rescue. It's hard to miss the mark in Valentino Couture (and with a matching dramatic cape!). 

 

IMOGEN POOTS

 

Imogen Poots owned the night of the EE British Academy Awards in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. We'd like a step and repeat of this look, please.

 

CATE BLANCHETT

OK, so this was 2013. But, we still haven't stopped thinking about this Valentino look on Cate Blanchett at the Dubai International Film Festival. Bomb.com.

 

LIZZY CAPLAN

Valentino, yet again, FTW! Lizzy Caplan worked it at Showtime’s Emmy Eve Soiree in macrame lace, brown leather accents and the perfect bubblegum-pink shoes. 

 

UMA THURMAN

When Chopard and Vanity Fair present the "Backstage At Cinecitta" exhibition, you bring your Sunday best. Uma Thurman didn't disappoint in a layered chiffon Jenny Packham dress that summoned another era in a completely modern way.
