Emerald is 2013 Pantone Colour of the Year

Alexis Bittar emerald ring

The Pantone Color Institute annually scours the world for the next Pantone colour of the year. This time, after making a splash at fashion week, emerald green was announced the colour of 2013. Emerald symbolizes clarity, renewal and rejuvenation. This rich, vibrant shade is luxurious, and universally appealing.

Who can wear emerald green?

Jewel-toned and classically elegant, it suits best brunettes like Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Salma Hayek and Kate Middleton. The funny fact is that each lady has rocked the red carpet in emerald long before it was named the hottest colour of 2013. We’ve seen at least two emerald gowns at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards. Little did Angelina (in Versace Atelier) and Mila (in Vera Wang) know that they were setting the tone for the hottest colour of 2013. After that, Salma brought some sparkle brought some sparkle to the “Savages” screening in L.A. where she appeared in an emerald Gucci Premiere gown. Last month, Kate Middleton opted for a Mulberry dress during her visit to the Natural History Museum.

Also, chataines and red haired women with olive skin will feel good in emerald because it compliments their skin tone. Fair skinned blondes should choose lighter shades of emerald, especially with a blue tint. Otherwise, emerald will overwhelm the delicacy of their faces.
