Austin's self-made millionaire Kendra Scott turned the city skyline yellow this week in celebration of her "Shark Tank" debut.


Scott, CEO of her self-named jewelry empire, celebrates the premiere of season 12 of ABC's "Shark Tank"—where she has taken a seat as a guest Shark on the show—by partnering with 17 downtown buildings to light up the Austin skies with her signature yellow Thursday night.


The premiere episode is set to air tonight at 7 p.m. on ABC.

Though many buildings supported Scott with yellow lights, Fairmont Austin hotel went the extra mile, lighting up with Scott's signature Jae star and initials. According to a press release, the Jae star also pays homage to the Lone Star State.

In tandem with her premiere, Scott will make a donation to DivInc., a non-profit that supports underrepresented entrepreneurs. The donation will help DivInc. reach its 2020 fundraising goals.
