Angelina Jolie Golden GlobesSolo, emerald green is a really ugly color. If you're like me, thinking about it brings back memories of your great grandmother's awkward decor choices in her mismatched living room. Remember that awkward ring given to you years ago, sitting in your jewelry box you swore you'd never wear? Well news flash, the fashion gods are saying it's time to dust it off and accessorize to the max. 

Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Elisabeth Moss rocked the color at the Golden Globes last weekend (and stayed away from bangs, thank goodness). And each of them looked stunning.

Looking at it on the stars makes me re-think everything I once knew about green. Can real women do that? Is looking good in green really possible? Well, see for yourself:

There's an elegance here. Angelina looks so simple, but that color is to DIE FOR on her skin tone. And Mila? Va. Va. Voooooom. The color speaks for itself; both actresses laid off on any serious jewels to complement their outfits.

Of course, having dark hair and a dark complexion makes this color really work. No worries, you don't have to run out to the store for a box of hair dye just yet. Start by experimenting with small bursts of color -- like a shirt or necklace -- and go from there. Accessorizing is always an option no matter what color palette's your norm.

If you're brave enough to try it out -- then check out these three emerald dresses that are sure to get you noticed:
