Don’t wear pink. It’s one of fashion’s golden rules. Even those of us who grew up with a Barbie doll in each hand have written off the color as too froufrou or girly. We’ve always been anti-, until a recent spate of rosy dresses made us reconsider the hue. Pink became the unofficial shade of Miami Art Basel; Anouck Lepère and Dasha Zhukova were just two of the partygoers photographed in bubblegum-colored frocks last week. Softer blush tones have been turning up on red carpets, too. Elle Fanning looked like a princess at the British Independent Film Awards in an Oscar de la Renta confection, while Kristen McMenamy, who generally favors a more gothic (read: all black) look, made an argument for pink at a dinner for the new Valentino: Master of Couture exhibit.
