La Vie en Rose

“La vie en rose” is French singer Edith Piaf’s signature song. It was released in the late 1940s and has been covered by artists dozens of times over the years. Most well-known versions are by Grace Jones and Donna Summer. Just like the famous song, the color pink has many different variations and can be worn by all kinds of women. And not just any old pink, but every shade from blush to rose to magenta to burgundy. The shades range for every woman to enjoy and to find her favorite hue. The really fun thing about wearing pink right now is that it is treated like a neutral and mixed in with every other color and print imaginable. Wear it alone or paired in a traditional color combo or throw it on with some leopard. It doesn’t matter. Pink is being celebrated in every shade from baby soft to shocking babe and the following pages show just how easy it is to wear every single one. We shot our editorial in the gritty backdrops naturally provided by the landscape in South Main District’s Washington Heights area. These seemingly neglected spots give the perfect foil to such pretty colors and styles and make for some interesting fashion.
