For me, there was only one choice for best dressed at the People’s Choice awards. Standing out in a sea of sparkles and spangles was Ginnifer Goodwin wearing a glorious hot pink dress by Roksanda Ilincic.
This dress stood out for all the right reasons. It was elegant rather than revealing. It was unusual in that it actually had sleeves and was of a demure length. And, of course, it stood out for the colour, that most bubblegum of pinks!
Pink is a much maligned colour that could be about to embark on a bit of a comeback tour. Traditionally associated with the most girlie of girls, like Elle Woods from legally blonde, and, god forbid, Paris Hilton, pink always seems to have too many little girl connotations to it. Sophisticated women hadn’t worn pink since Kay Thompson exhorted it’s value’s in the film Funny Face in 1957.
But now, thanks to stars like Jennifer Lawrence, who wore pink to the Golden Globes last year, and now Ginnifer, pink may well be back on the fashion horizon. Which is great news, because, it actually suits a lot of skin tones and hair shades. Let’s hail the return of the frothiest of colours, and ‘Think Pink’ this spring.
