Everywhere you look, pink.

Although pink has discreetly and sporadically been around through the decades, it was Valentino who brought it everywhere, front and center with his fall 2022-2023 PP Collection. Hey, not just pops of pink, but intense monochromatic unapologetic looks, from top to bottom. Since then, pink stopped being an exclusive possession of girly ladies. In today’s society both men and women have made fuchsia the neutral shade of choice. It is the new black. And we simply love it!

Enter Barbiecore. With neon hues of pink already trendy and trending, Barbiecore is but icing on the cake. From a bold move for daring celebrities and fierce fashionistas, the color has conquered shy royals, busy dignitaries and even classic actors you would have never imagined dressed in pink. Pierce Brosnan? No way.

Oh yes. Late in 2022, Brosnan shocked fans when he wore a loud fuchsia suit by Viggo London for the “Black Adam” movie photocall at the Corinthia Hotel. You see, we were used to this very hot James Bond spy in traditional tuxedos and corporate suits. Yet he got the pink fever, made a statement, and won. Other guys exuding confidence in pink include Dwayne Johnson, Drake, Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal, Idris Elba and Jason Momoa. Latin artists Sebastián Yatra, Luis Fonsi and Elvis Crespo are also in the game. Because Harry Styles, well, is Harry Styles. And he has been wearing pink ensembles forever.

Fuchsia is young, fun, glam and unforgettable. Pantone has announced it as Viva Magenta, the color of 2023. And trendsetters can’t get enough of it. Among them, first lady Dr. Jill Biden. Flotus has rocked the pink at least two times recently. In London, she was fabulous in Reem Acra.

Eye-catching fuchsia has been all over red carpets, Cannes, designer runways and royal events. Infanta Sofía of Spain, daughter of the very stylish Queen Letizia and King Felipe, and sister of HRH Princess Leonor, attended her confirmation this month wearing a sexy jumpsuit with crossed neckline by the Spanish label Cayro Woman. It was definitely a grownup move for the 16-year-old princess used to wearing more childish and conservative dresses. Based in Sevilla, Cayro Woman has been worn many times by Queen Letizia and her two daughters.
