Fall 2008 Trend: Purple

Uh, Hello? Purple Please?

Model: Devon Aoki. . .one of my many model crushes!

This Fall the trendy fashion color of the season is Purple. With it's long association with royalty, fashion designers are giving their clothing and customers the royal treatment. As the powerful purple color denotes dominance, affluence, and supremacy, those who keep up with the trend will be at the head of their class and truly on top of their fashion game. From splashes of violet, hues of eggplant and tasty grape, every shade reigns high in fall fashion from head to toe.

Some celebrities strut the runway royally in these striking shades. . .

*Kelly Rowland smiles with sovereignty in her electric purple free flowing dress.
*Nia Long poses for the camera at the BET Awards in a pansy purple short bubble dress.

And others opt for a more casual day out look or evening elegance. . .

*Rihanna walks hand at hip in a sheer tyrian purple dress.
*While, both Jessica Alba and Fergie go for skinny jeans.
