Honeysuckle. According to Pantone Color Institute, it’s the color of the year, but for most men, even the name intimidates. What’s more, this color’s mere pink hue is enough to turn many men off. But honeysuckle is not a little girl’s pink; this sophisticated pink is for grown folks. Used in smaller dosages, honeysuckle can work quite well even on the most testosterone-driven man.
About honeysuckle. It’s said that the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree, and honeysuckle’s mother, red, is the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum. Be prepared for an immediate boost in your look and overall feeling when you don this color.
Here’s an interesting fact: It’s not the fragrance of the honeysuckle flower that attracts the hummingbird to its nectar; it’s the color. With that said, expect a bit of magnetism when you wear this hue.
How to incorporate honeysuckle into your wardrobe. Men can inject instant verve and vigor into their spring wardrobe by incorporating bits of honeysuckle. For the daring, pair a honeysuckle colored shirt with a navy, grey or charcoal suits. Alternatively, for a more corporate look, choose a striped design tie to offset the color with more masculine hues such as brown, navy or grey. Do keep in mind that this is a high intensity color. Make sure your attitude mirrors that intensity. Honeysuckle is a great color for warding off the winter blues. Try it! Add this lively hue to your wardrobe today.

OMG! Talk about Red Carpet potential. This morning I visited fashionologie.com and viewed 52 amazing photos of John Galliano’s Spring 2011 Christian Dior haute couture. I’m telling you, each beautiful creation was “slap yo mama” worthy.
But don’t take my word. See for yourself.

Regardless of what Designer Oscar de la Renta thinks — discussed in detail below — first Lady Michelle Obama flexed her style muscle this week. During Chinese President Hu Jintao’s U.S. visit, Mrs. Obama gave us two very different but equally stunning head-to-toe looks, with flawless hair and makeup to match.
Serbian-born designer Roksanda Ilincic created Mrs. Obama’s day look, a navy-blue dress embellished with gunmetal and silver latticework-and-roses embroidery and matching top-coat. Completing the look, FLOTUS wore over-the-knee black suede boots, adding just the right amount of pop with red patent leather gloves.
For the White House State dinner, Mrs. Obama wore an Alexander McQueen sleeveless, petal-print silk organza gown. Created by Sarah Burton who succeeded McQueen following his death, the off-one-shoulder frock, done in a warm red – a color which symbolizes happiness and prosperity in Chinese culture – featured an asymmetrical neckline and a full skirt that complimented the First Lady’s silhouette. To complete the look, First Lady O wore a fringed shawl and sported an elegant updo hairstyle, perfect for displaying her one-of-a-kind black geode and ruby Kimberly McDonald earrings.
Fashion Notables in the House
Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue magazine, attended the State dinner, accompanied by her companion Shelby Bryan. The two made a striking and imposingly good looking couple.
Fashion designer Vera Wang also appeared with her husband, successful businessman Arthur Becker. And speaking of Vera Wang, some fashion critiques felt a celebration for a Chinese president, with a further focus on promoting American-Chinese trade, warranted attire spotlighting the creativity of China or an American designer with a familial Chinese connection Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta publicly criticized the FLOTUS’ choice to wear two British-based designers. de la Renta told WWD “My understanding is that the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade – American products in China and Chinese products in America. Why do you wear European clothes?” de la Renta has dressed every First Lady in the past 30 years except Mrs. Obama.

I am a huge fan of Robert Downey, Jr.’s personal style. I expect him to bring something fresh and unique to every red carpet event and usually, he does. Downey’s appearance at last night’s 68th Annual Golden Globes Awards was no exception. In fact, all of Hollywood’s leading men, young and old, hit the red carpet and presenter’s stage, in fashionable form. Indeed, old Hollywood glamour is back!
While the now redhead Robert Pattinson sported my favorite look donning a beautiful navy blue tuxedo, Downey, Jr. didn’t disappoints, both as a fashion icon and entertainer. Wearing a charcoal grey Prada tuxedo, white shirt, red satin tie with matching pocket square and black perforated Spazzolato shoes, Downey’s spot-on look and brilliantly funny introduction speech, shown below, brought viewers one of the high-points of the evening.
