The mother of all colors: bright sexy unforgettable....RED.
It's been a while since I've done a color muse. For the week leading up to Valentines day...I thought what could be more perfect than a week of ravishing red?
Let's explore the use of red in fashion, makeup, decoration, food and film. Let's talk about the symbolism of red and the emotions associated with this most fiery of colors. Why do we love red? Why do the majority of men say it's their favorite color? What does a red door symbolize? Why do women get more attention when wearing red? Why does Christian Louboutin use red on the sole of his shoes? Let's find out this week.
Hot - Passion - Sex - Violence - cupid - devil - anger - power - danger - stop - Christmas - emergency - and of course Love.
Red is inherently exciting. Red draws attention, increases enthusiasm, stimulates energy and encourages action. Red gives us confidence.
"When in doubt wear red" Bill Blass
"I love red so much that I almost want to paint everything red" Alexander Calder
"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick" Gwyneth Paltrow
Braxton and I are traveling today. We're on our way back home from a much needed long weekend, hopefully rested, excited, and ready to move forward with all of our plans.
You may notice I haven't yet changed the heading to muse of the week: red! - I'll have to take care of that tomorrow. Please join us this week as we explore the mother of all colors...red.
Have a beautiful day.
