Colorblocking reaches new heights: Pink and Red

As the color blocking trend has continued to grow, its hard to tell how long it will actually last. It's also hard to tell how many new trends will emerge from the original trend itself. Its very rare to see micro trends emerge from seemingly temporary trends, but from color blocking, we've already seen 'same color, different shade', purple and orange combos, and now, the ever-dreaded pink and red!

At the premiere of the much anticipated Friends With Benefits, established starlet and rising fashionista Emma Stone donned a Giambattista Valli ensemble and nude Louboutin pumps.

Usually, our attention wuld be solely focused on the ideallic red soles, but this time, they came second to Emma's outfit! We couldn't take our eyes off of her colorblocked frock, consisting of a crimson sweater and hit pink bowed pencil skirt, both off of the runway of Giambattista Valli's Fall 2011 collection.

Her pairing of the two traditionally clashing colors is undoubtedly striking, but yet, its not the first time we've seen it! Late last year, Carrie Bradshaw (Come on, we can't be the only ones who still refer to SJP as the gal who officially made Manhattan cooler than L.A.!) wore bright red jeans and a pink/purple tee while out shopping.

  12. I love pink and red ever since I saw Jessica of What I wore don this color combination. I never really thought about "wearing" outside of either color alone for V-day, but never really together. Nice though.
