V.I.P (that’s Very Important Pink) dresses to shop now

by Freya Drohan
10th May 2019

Big Pink Energy is going nowhere.

Pink was undeniably the shade of the eve at Monday’s Met Gala, where guests walked a dusty rose-coloured carpet and partied underneath colossal flamingos. On paper, Lady Gaga, Doutzen Kroes, Emma Roberts, Nicki Minaj and Kacey Musgraves all have little in common — but on the night, they were united by their hue of choice.

Even before the ‘first Monday in May’, celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Gemma Chan were seen rocking ginormous fuchsia frocks. Designers at every fashion week were evidently keen to ‘make the boys wink’ too; with bubblegum and cerise creations showing up everywhere from Marc Jacobs and Moschino to Prada and Gucci. At a fashion show closer to home  (aka on your Instagram feed), pink dresses have probably been popping up in all their guises.

No matter where your inspiration is coming from, here are 13 styles to give you a rosy outlook on life.
