SPOTLIGHT - Cycle 12, task 2.

Ready for your FM-style cycle 12 update ? why am I even asking, I don't give you the choice HAHAHAHAHA.

la vie en rose
quand il me prend dans ses bras...

There is a million things that I instinctively thought about while reading the task description. First : not a big fan of the pink. Second : "Yay!" to a new challenge. Third : what am I going to do with it ?
I haven't got a precise idea about the color itself, but I had in mind what I wanted the outfit to look like : it has to be some kind of punkish ballerina.

Couple of things popped into my head. First, North West's birthday outfit - which I adored and made me wish I was a child again so I could wear this ALL THE FREAKIN TIME. It's non-agressive pink and it's super cute. This became then "outfit goal #1". Moreover, I've recently binge-watched the Scandinavian series "Bron-Broen" (The Bridge, season 2), and I loved the character of Laura. She is that smart but tormented young woman with a sleek bun and this huge fur coat ; I instantly fell in love with her look.

But having some inspirational goals wasn't enough. So I made a quick research to find the perfect idea of a pink outfit using those guidelines. I have mostly found that the more pale-powdered the pink was, the softer and pleasant the outfit turned out to be. Thus, using this kind of shade allows to go a bit more crazy on the pattern, textures or material composing the outfit. I knew then where I wanted to put the accent : definitely not on the pink, but on the pink. Get what I mean ;)

Runway inspirations
(Gucci & Ralph Lauren)

Streetstyle inspirations

I did a first try with some bright neon pink. I needed to do that to be sure I didn't feel wrong. I loved the idea of layering and I've found that those two jackets were a perfect match, but that was still too raw. Then I tried a new version of MØ's "I don't wanna dance" outfit and it felt just perfectly right. The outfit has this ballerina vibe and looks messy in an effortless way. I love how the scarf gives it an instant chic touch. So I submitted #2.

So, what have the judges thought about it ?

I didn't look at the scored board while I discovered the judges' reactions - don't ask me why (I'm on the moon these days..). I was like "good ! that sounds positive ! let's see my ranking". AND BAM ! 9.9, I mean - I had a bonus point but COME ON ! ok, so I'm still on top - my brain turned into mashed potatoes for a moment. But then I realized : nothing good can happen next. I have to stay focused..

Anyway, let me introduce you my favorite outfits from this task.
On the judges' bench, we have Mireia : I love how she managed to use that blush pink more than I did - aaaah, those Isabel Marant pants ! And on the contestant's one, there is Jovana's outfit : it's so far from everything I could have imagine, I love how she paired the pink with everything but black. Beautiful !

I think we are done now, 
so stay tuned,
and praise MØ.
