PURPLE POWER

01/29/2010

The purple fashion trend which made its way to the catwalk in winter 2009 seems to be capturing the hearts of our beloved celebs. This year’s Golden Globe awards and our very own National Television awards were spellbound in a purple haze. The regal colour which oozes wealth, money and opulence is no longer exclusive to the royal family and pop sensation Prince.

Shades such as violet, plum, lilac and amethyst have made a show stopping appearance on the red carpet this month. X-factor star Leona Lewis wore a Satin lavender Roberto Cavalli gown which complimented her gorgeous golden skin tone while Damages star Rose Byrne dazzled us with her rich plum Lanvin dress with silver jewellery.

From the potent purple of Sandra Bullock’s chiffon Bottega Veneta number to Fergie’s pale lilac Elie Saab gown, the purple tones ruled both the catwalk and the red carpet; but do they rule high street fashion? I will leave you to decide….

The spring/summer 2010 collection exhibited inspirational pastel tones from Versace for a more delicate and calming effect. Caroline Herrera paraded an off the shoulder number which was sublimely slimming and Christian Dior never ceases to amaze me with a couture collection to die for, with black satin underwear and purple tulle.

From the catwalk to the red carpet, the colour purple has now made it to our very own high street at clothes shops such as Topshop and online retailers such as Asos and My1stWish. With so many shades of purple to choose from and now at extremely affordable prices there is no reason why you shouldn’t be in seen in purple! Here are a few ideas to get you excited……
