Pink: The Official Fashion Week Color, Whether Or Not You Aspire to Be a Human Barbie

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!
