Wearing red and nothing else

Sure neons still may be about, and fashion seems to be having a blue moment at the moment too, but once you see the beautiful specimen that is Lou Doillon in the latest Barney’s campaign, the only hue that will be on your mind will be red. How stunning is the above picture? The perfectly cropped knit, the shiny draped skirt. It’s sold me. Not only do I want the outfit (and the hair), but all I want to do now, besides have some fun, is have some fun wearing red. In all the shades, and textures, and prints.

red

From red hair to red lips and Taylor Swifts album ‘Red,’ the shade really is the ultimate classic. While black may say ‘I’ll be whoever you want me to be,’ red is unapologetic in its boldness. It says ‘I am who I am and if you don’t like it, then I’m too busy looking fabulous to care.’ Its Grace Coddington’s hair, Marilyn Monroe’s lips, Comme Des Garcons love hearts, Santa’s shade du jour and Minnie Mouse’s favourite. And who’s to argue with such a stylish bunch?
