Color of the Week: Cerulean

Brittny Drye


Thanks to Devil Wears Prada (one of my favorite movies of all-time ... I'm deep, I know), we learn how the color the electric shade of cerulean came into fashion.

According to Anna Wintour Miranda Priestley, "In 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn't it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin."

Funny thing is, I did get the one cerulean piece I own off the clearance rack. But I make that clearance rack fish look good.
