Has St. Valentine Inspired our Designers?

Everywhere on the runway, from New York to Milan, from Lacoste to Project Runway contestants, featured red and pink together in the collections.

This color combination used to be reserved for Valentines Day and wedding bouquets, but apparently it is okay, no, down right fashionable to wear it for Spring 2011.

I’ll be honest, I never would have worn these colors together, for fear of looking like a paper heart or a lipstick ad.  But now I am intrigued.  I suddenly have this desire to go out and buy a bubblegum pink American Apparel leotard and wear it with a long red skirt (I would settle for high waisted pants).  The combination seems so daring, yet at the same time innately girly and romantic.

Here is how the designers showed the colors.  How will you?
