Did Sebastián Yatra wear a head-to-toe Blush tuxedo to the 2022 Oscars? Yes, he did. And fashion insiders and audience members loved his bold take on the traditional look, with a Blush shirt, Blush vest, and complete Blush suit that was accessorized with a black bowtie and Blush and black shoes to complete the look. Now that takes commitment—even the buttons were Blush-colored.

How the color is made: Mix vivid red with white to make blush.

History: Blush is historically a color associated with youth and femininity. It was a color that was considered gender-neutral for most of antiquity, until around the 1950s when it became a color more commonly associated with girls. Though its gender neutrality seems to be coming back into fashion.

Color in Action

Blush is another popular color for the red carpet and awards shows because of its soft aesthetic and flowy feel. Kacey Musgraves wore a Giambattista Valli tiered tulle gown in Blush that felt airy and light to the 2049 Academy Awards, and Maya Rudolph wore a floral Blush gown that had a matching cape for extra royal appeal.
A bedroom painted in Blush tones will feel distinctly feminine and relaxing. Mix in some navy blue and bronze for a masculine balance to the space that will enhance the soft Blush.
