Nicola Coughlan's Bubblegum-Pink Gown Confirms Summer's Hottest Colour Trend
With buzzy titles like “Bridgerton” and “Derry Girls” added to her accolades, Nicola Coughlan is well-versed in dramatic, red carpet style. Following the star’s pink-and-black Richard Quinn gown at the Met Gala, Coughlan continued her love letter to the colour pink with a voluminous, hot pink Valentino gown for the 2022 BAFTA TV awards red carpet.
Coughlan’s gown featured a smocked hemline and oversize bows along the sleeves. The design was from the brand’s fall/winter 2022 ready-to-wear collection, entirely focused on the colours pink and black. Coughlan complemented the dress with a glossy, black manicure by Michelle Humphrey, hair by Halley Brisker, and makeup by Neil Young using Pat McGrath Labs. Coughlan’s stylist, London-based Aimée Croysdill, paired the fuchsia dress with silver-and-diamond jewellery by Messika.
Pink is one of the biggest colour trends of 2022. The playful colour was central to Coughlan’s character arc in “Bridgerton” and showed Penelope Featherington’s maturation during the show’s second series. At the BAFTA TV awards, fuchsia and playful bubblegum shades were worn by many celebrities, including Michelle Keegan and Katie Piper. In the US, bright pink outfits filled the red carpet at the Grammys this past April. And let’s not forget the major pink fashion moment that kicked off 2022: Rihanna’s vintage pink Chanel puffer jacket worn for her pregnancy announcement photo shoot.
