Okay we all knew something was stirring when Queen Bee Beyonce named her first born Blue, and right we were. Suddenly eye lids all over were transformed during Spring/Summer London Fashion week 2011 sporting shades of the once forgotten colour. A rainbow of blue shades were on show during spring/summer fashion week, Louise Gray models updated the cat eye with a slick of blue liner, Pringle of Scotland and Michael van der Ham went for the subtle approach with a light working of blue inners of the eyes. Whatever the application, the message was delivered loud and clear: blue is the new black.
Fast forward to Autumn/Winter and the blues have spread. We fell in love with the teal nails seen on models at Holly Fulton’s LFW show and Erdem’s dark and sexy Navy Ombre nail concoction, and the piece de resistance, Katie Perry’s Smurf inspired hairdo unveiled at Paris Fashion Week. Indulge this trend and prove once and for all that blue no longer belongs to the boys.
