Style story: Pretty in pink

Barbie girl or not, this spring, it's time to think pink. The runaway runway shade of the season, from the barest blush tones to full-on fuchsia, designers embraced the colour of love with all their hearts.

From the elegant rose petal-toned suits at Givenchy and Celine, to dusky pink prom dresses at Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin, this season's pink parade is all about rocking the colour from head to toe in one bold style statement. But banish all thoughts of tots and tweens in sickly sugar pink ensembles - 2012's take on the classic girlie shade is all about grown-up dressing. Sharp tailoring and modernist lines are key, while vintage-inspired embellished gowns are refined and romantic. Pretty and undeniably feminine, it's all about the tone of pink you choose that counts this season. Fuchsia is super summery and hot, hot, hot; oyster shell pink is the most coveted, while elegant blush tones make for the most wearable shades for all ages - and has already become the go-to choice for the most forward-thinking of Hollywood fashionistas on the red carpet
