The Pantone Color Institute named Radiant Orchid the official color of 2014 (if you are curious how they came to this conclusion, read this) and so I figured I might as well give it a go. JJ was a willing accomplice and the perfect canvas — her warm skin tone is an ideal contrast to the cool tone of orchid.
