This year, pink has shown its fearlessness by showing up unannounced in the holiday scene. For a season where the color invite list is as expected as the guest list at an Upper East Side soirée, pink has made itself the new fiancée at your family dinner. It’s new, it’s interesting, it’s eye catching and with the right accessories, it’s stealing the show in the form of dazzling black tie evening gowns to sassy party mini dresses.
Over time, I have realized that pink can be way more than a girly bridesmaid dress or the color on a nursery wall. It can be powerful, striking, and head turning. It can be symbolic or make a simple statement. I think of Elle Woods, whose signature color carried her to achieve all her dreams. Or the pop star, PINK, whose presence and vocals send shivers down my back. Or the tremendously successful marketing push Victoria Secret made years back, so teens can look cute but appropriate in their line. I finally love pink for what it’s worth, which is feminine AND strong.
