According to The Guardian, in the past two years, black has gradually moved out of the leading position, giving way to cheerful colors, eye-catching. In it, pink is “dominating” the first half of this year, judged by Vogue as the most powerful color. At Oscar 2019, pink is the most chosen star, including Sarah Paulson, Emilia Clarke, Gemma Chan, Kacey Musgraves, etc.
During a week of Cannes film festival in France in May, black appeared sparse on the red carpet. Thai actor Araya Hargate conquered the event every day with a colorful outfit – when purple ombre, red and blue. The former French First Lady, Carla Bruni, joined the group in a nice dress with Celine’s royal blue shoulder dress. Cannes youngest judge this year – Elle Fanning – choose Valentino’s colorful flower dress. Model Elsa Hosk impressed with purple fur dress, Indian actress Deepika Padukone stood out with a neon green dress, etc.
In 2018, many colorful and bright colors were favored by celebrities. The color actress Viola Davis drew attention on Oscar 2018’s red carpet with Michael Kors’ pink sweet candy skirt. Albino model Winnie Harlow chose the lush green dress of Ralph & Russo, etc.
Black is also absent in many social contexts today. According to Vogue, the millennial pink is considered the symbolic color of the Y generation – those born from the early 1980s to the early 2000s – associated with a non-gender trend. The “Orange weekend” movement (#WearOrange weekend) was launched by American activists to increase awareness of gun violence.
According to Nytimes, The Guardian, multidisciplinary trends are increasingly prevalent by feminist development. No color is considered eccentric, ostentatious or inappropriate in this day and age. Women are now confident with their choices, not trying to hide overweight bodies in black clothes. They can comfortably go to the office, take a day walk with neon suits or sparkling sequin – the material is only for dinner parties.
