From Pepto-Bismol to powdery pastels, this fall and winter season is all about pretty pink with an edge.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pink Coats

Story by Nikki Dhaliwal

think pink funny faceAt the Fall/Winter 2013 shows, we saw a variety of textures and shades of pink coats, from Chanel’s iconic tweed to luxurious fox fur at Saint Laurent. It seems like the designers were inspired by Funny Face, a 1950s film starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. In the opening scene, Kay Thompson plays Maggie Prescott, editor-in-chief of Quality magazine, in a character loosely based on former Vogue editor-in-chief, Diana Vreeland. Prescott is disappointed in the magazine sales and suddenly becomes inspired by a pink swatch sitting on her desk and breaks into the film’s first musical number, “Think Pink.”
