It’s described on the Pantone website as an elegant and rich hue, with a sophisticated natural earthiness. I know it’s just a colour but I really do believe all those sentiments. Looking at the photo story on the Pantone website it shows Marsala in so many ways, including clothing, food, and kitchen decor. I see the warmth and elegance in the photos and I am definitely convinced that this was the right pick for Color of The year for 2015.

I have never before been so excited about a Pantone pick. In previous years I like the colours but couldn’t see myself wearing or using them in any way, but with Marsala I am already digging through my lipstick drawer to find my best Marsala matches!

I’m definitely excited about the Color of The Year for 2015, but how do you feel? Are you a fan of this new hue? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Best Look at the 2014 ACM Awards: Taylor Swift

Last night was the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards and as usual the red carpet was packed with pretty looks that are totally inspiring for Spring. Some of the hottest stars in country music rocked the red carpet and blew it our of the water with their chosen beauty and fashion looks, but one star totally stole the show in my eyes.

Taylor Swift killed it in her black and white crop top and maxi skirt, and her hair and makeup was just as fierce.

Not only is her outfit beyond stunning (hello Angeline leg slit), but have you seen those soft curls, strappy stilettos, and smokey eyes? Taylor absolutely rocked it on the red carpet and I cannot get enough of this look. Head to toe she really pulled it off and I am totally in love with this look.

Let’s take a closer look at her hair and makeup. The lip colour is super pretty and just bold enough to be noticed but not too much that it overpowers her pretty eye makeup. Taylor stuck with her signature cat-eye shape but switched it up a bit with the navy colour.

Now I need to find this lipstick colour, learnt o curl my hair like Taylor’s, and invest in a maxi skirt. Her whole look is the perfect combination of sweet, sassy, and a little bit sexy. Top to bottom I love this look and it was my favourite one from last night’s 49th Annual ACM Awards.

What was your favourite look last night?
