History of Pink in Fashion

Pink was firmly established as a feminine color in the 1950s when US First Lady Mamie Eisenhower wore a pink gown as her inaugural dress. Pink has had many iconic fashion moments including Marilyn Monroe in her pink strapless gown and matching gloves in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and the pink satin jackets worn by the Pink Ladies in the film Grease (1978). In its many variations pink is many things, feminine, innocent, shocking and bold. Hot Pink was everywhere in 2022. TikTok, celebrity red carpet looks and fashion runways all embraced hot pink. Just a few years back, everyone was talking about Millennial Pink. In the 1980s, fluorescent, neon and Barbie pink were the most popular pinks.
