If you didn’t already know then guess what? Millennial pink happens to be THE trendiest colour of the year. In all of fashion history, never before has a single colour taken over all contemporary spheres! From wardrobes and accessories, to interior décor and cosmetics, this feminine shade of pink is oh so fashionable and versatile!
A pleasant combination of bubblegum, blush and salmon, millennial pink has been endorsed by what is now known as the ‘Instagram generation’, however, The Grand Budapest Hotel film may be the very reason why this pretty hue has won over the hearts of the fashion world. In the film, the hotel architecture was lavishly painted in multiple tones of pink, sparking a major interest in the pinky palette.
The rage then grew ever more abundant with the launch of the popular rose gold iPhone. Then to add fuel to the fire, Pantone named ‘rose quartz’ as one of it’s colours of the year in 2016. Ever since all these developments occurred, millennial pink has literally dominated runways, homes and social media platforms such as Instagram and Tumblr – it’s no wonder why the colour is often referred to as ‘Tumblr Pink’.
Now the most ubiquitous colour in the fashion world, celebrities cannot get enough of the ultra-feminine hue. Worn at various red carpet events and accessorising the masses, this colour is a must-have shade amongst the stars. However, one fashion icon in particular has donned millennial pink like a pro for many years. We’re talking about none other than our dearest R&B princess, Rihanna. Riri wears millennial pink so much that fans have renamed the shade ‘Rihanna Pink’. From casual to elegant glam, Rihanna does ‘pretty in pink’ absolutely flawlessly! Don’t believe us?
