And Pantone's top colors for Fall 2013 are...
Find out the color of the moment.
You already knew emerald would be huge news for 2013, but now that two more shades of green have been announced as Pantone's top hues of the season, it's officially the color of the moment.
According to today's WWD, "Leading the pack, deep lichen green (somewhere between army and khaki) topped the women’s list and finished third on the men’s side. While green is not exactly a shocker of a fall color, it turned up in the more unusual hues of emerald and linden green on both lists. Sizing up fall’s prizewinning palette, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman said, 'If you ever walked in the forest or the woods in the fall when the leaves have fallen, there is such a gorgeous mélange of color. This palette reflects those wonderful fall colors but at the same time there are colors that bring a certain sturdiness and structure.'"

Reality TV: such a mindless guilty pleasure, mostly filled with questionable spray tans and insane hair extensions. But in honor of the season premiere of one of our favorites, The Real Housewives of Orange County, we decided to celebrate a select few reality stars who’ve displayed legitimately great hair and makeup.
