Summer is officially over (and we are well into Autumn!) but that doesn't mean we can't play with a pretty colour palette of bright and beautiful pinks and purples before the darker hair and makeup trends of winter take over.
Say hello to the violet eyes, pink and purple lips and lavender-hued hair of late, that got us thinking about why these shades have been such hit on the red carpet and runway recently. And then the penny dropped...
Since Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the Color of the Year 2014, celebrities have been flaunting the hue through their fashion choices, across their lips, over their eyes and even in their hair (Nicole Richie, we're looking at you.)
Described by Pantone as a "captivating harmony of fushcia, purple and pink undertones," we wanted in, so looked to some of our favourite celebrities for inspiration.
