Give yourself a pat on the back. Three weeks into the festival of high-end bacchanalia and outfit voyeurism known as fashion month, and you're still following the absurd goings-on. Drug rugs and quasi-nudity have achieved honorable mention as trends. Tampax has become jewelry. It's all been, as the fashion folks call it, a rootin' tootin' good time. Beyond ill-advised lifestyle allusions or nightmare-inducing earrings, one color has been ruling the runways at S/S 2015 fashion week: Pink. 

From New York to Milan, designers are taking a page out of the books of Elle Woods, Barbie, and Sharpay Evans. So far, we've seen dresses, skirt suits, ponchos and crop tops in various shades of pink. Altuzarra showed Carnation blazers. Versace did blush colored 3-piece sets. The centerpiece of Marc Jacobs' presentation was a massive hot-pink house. 

Check out some of the notable cotton-candy colored moments from fashion month so far. Consider eating a Hostess Snowball while doing so. It'll match!  


Try to contain yourself, human Barbies of the world. At this season’s Barbie-inspired presentation, Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott showed an army of pink ensembles reminiscent of her early ’90s looks. Matching pink roadster not included. 


Versace’s set of matchy-matchy powder pink separates is Cher Horowitz: 2.0. 

Oscar De La Renta

Something for the country club set. 

Ashley Williams

She looks a bit like Barbie’s door, and the detail on the front is a yellow door knob. 


Is that a sequin caterpillar slithering over a pink field, or a road winding through a pink desert? We may never know. 

Mison Kitsune

Strawberry ponchos make rainy days more tolerable. It’s science. 

Alberta Ferretti

Behold: Ophelia, if you dropped some red dye in the lake. 

Angelo Bratis

Elle Woods walks into a toga party, wearing this. The bend and snap does not go as planned. 

Jenny Packham

There’s something pink for everyone!

Fashion East

Pink for club kids….

Burberry Prorsum

Pink for curators…


Pink for people who only desire to wear pajamas for the rest of their lives. It’s a no-brainer!


Pound mimosas at your friend’s wedding shower in style. 


This gal’s name is Muffy, and she’s late to her Upper East Side social committee meeting. 

Big pink house at Marc Jacobs

Last, but certainly not least, the centerpiece at Marc Jacobs’ show. Behold! It’s the perfect pied a terre for the lady or gentleman who has a pathological addiction to pink. It may sound like I’m kidding, but these people actually exist.
