Tiffany blue is one of the most famous colors in the world. So it’s no surprise that Thursday night, as stars gathered at Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Ball at Rockefeller Center, there’d be a lot of blue on the red carpet. Gwyneth Paltrow wore a light blue Ralph Lauren number, while Kate Hudson did her best blue in Reem Acra. Jessica Biel paired her Tiffany’s jewelry with an Elie Saab gown, and Michelle Williams wore a somewhat shapeless Katie Ermilio gown. Model Cato van Ee also came dressed in blue. But we want to know: Who do you think looks best?
Essie’s Bikini So Teeny shade is pretty much the color of the summer. Not quite periwinkle, and not pastel either, Bikini So Teeny is summery, and bright and very very fresh. It’s also pretty much sold out, no matter where you go. So if you can’t get your paws on a bottle, you can still dress the shade, but choosing one of the nine Bikini So Teeny-ish-colored items we’ve found.
Tobias Fünke, take note: Nicki Minaj has gone and gotten herself thoroughly blued. She’s a touch more greenish than Tobias, so I don’t suppose she’ll be much of a threat to his very important role in the Blue Man Group. I actually think it looks nice on Nicki, especially with her pastel pink hair, but no word yet on the reason behind this skin color switch … aside from Vogue, of course. She’s really doing her best to pass Gaga on the road to Crazytown, huh? [Refinery29]
If there’s any universally flattering color, it’s blue. There’s a shade to match anyone’s coloring and, done right, a really bright blue looks good on everyone. It sounds perilous, especially for those who don’t typically sport neon colors, but why not integrate a flashy cyan by confining it to a truly risk-free area like, say, your nails? Regardless of what you wear, even (and especially) if it’s your most buttoned-up work attire, bright blue nails are a wink to your more daring side. Take it from Beyoncé, who’s been wearing the shade out and about in a nod to her daughter, Blue Ivy. See, there must be something to it! These are my five picks for the boldest blues — what’s your favorite? If one catches your eye, I’ve included the purchasing information after the jump. Keep reading »

Yesterday, Simcha alerted us to Jared Leto’s newly blue ‘do. This bright shade of turquoise (or “Mint Blue,” as the Facebook page dedicated solely to Jared Leto’s hair calls it) is one of my favorite colors — even when it’s not attached to a gorgeous man’s face. After the jump, I’ve collected some bright blue clothing and accessories to help us all bring a little Leto into our lives … Keep reading »
Pink equals girl, blue equals boy. That’s the widespread association with those two colors, but it wasn’t always that way. In the early 1900s, blue was for girls and pink was for boys. Back then, the British magazine Women’s Journal explained: “That pink being a more decided and stronger colour, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” DressMaker magazine agreed. “The preferred colour to dress young boys in is pink. Blue is reserved for girls as it is considered paler, and the more dainty of the two colours, and pink is thought to be stronger (akin to red).” No one knows when the change took place, but by the time Adolf Hitler was in power, the switch had been made, as he labeled homosexuals with a pink triangle, which associated them with femininity.

I was shopping at a Chicago grocery store this weekend, and I happened upon these “His & Hers Value Pack” water bottles. While it’s great to fill up a reusable bottle rather than drinking from throwaways, why does the girl’s have to be pinkish? Why not green? Keep reading »
