If ever there were a color that could take an entire prom season by storm and make even the royals turn a similar shade of embarrassment, purple, our friends, is the name of the game. From lilac to lavender to deep aubergine, this royal family of hues is presiding quite nicely over this year's prom trends.
"Purple is everywhere," Michaelene Coffee, of Place One Hollywood, told The Times Leader. "It doesn't matter if it's dark or light."
And right she is - just recall the swoopy fairytale gown that Mila Kunis wore to the Academy Awards, or the plum confection worn by her co-star Natalie Portman. Amanda Seyfried, too, recently made a red carpet appearance wearing a quite righteous eggplant-colored mini. Who wouldn't heed the example of three of Hollywood's most regal ladies?
Whatever shade constitutes your idea of the purple dream, know that you'll have the command of ultimate flattery behind you. This is one color family that is bound to liven up any girl's complexion and add a soft, dreamy veneer to her figure.
