Taking style cues from Beyonce's 'Lemonade,' the stars pack a punch in the cheery shade.

Ever since Beyonce set the internet on fire wearing a marigold ruffled, Peter Dundas-designed Roberto Cavalli gown in her Emmy-nominated Lemonade visual album on HBO, the fashion world can’t get enough of the statement-making color.

Case in point: The 68th annual Emmys red carpet on Sunday, where the stars stepped out in the sunny shade.

Empire's Taraji P. Henson, who is nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, lit up the step-and-repeat in a vibrant Vera Wang gown.

Ellie Kemper, who is up for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her role on the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, dazzled in a fitted citrine crystal and sequin-embellished full length gown by British designer Jenny Packham. The texture of the gown was incredible. 

Transparent’s Emily Robinson dazzled in a more muted take on the hue, wearing a tiered Carolina Herrera gown dusted with crystals and paired with Ileana Makri earrings.

But the brightest moment of all? Angela Bassett, wearing a canary-yellow Christian Siriano gown. Mandy Moore has also arrived in yellow. Shine on.
