Celebrities In Ultra Violet, the Pantone Color of the Year 2018
Since ancient times, this deep shade of bright purple has been worn by regal figures. Centuries ago, the dye was incredibly expensive and difficult to procure, and as a result, only the richest could enjoy it. (According to history.com, some Roman emperors even forbade their citizens from wearing the hue or else punished them by death!) Ever since, it’s always been associated with royalty, and the current British monarch is no exception, wearing the electric shade as recently as Dec. 7 (right).
