在电影《了不起的盖茨比》中，高富帅汤姆曾这样讽刺盖茨比，“穿粉色西装的人上过牛津（A man in the pink went to Oxford）？”。这句话透露了两点信息：其一，牛津很高大上；其二，男生穿粉色很“掉价”。很多人对穿粉色衣服的男生都存在偏见，认为他们不够爷们儿，甚至是病态的表现。但是，最近几年，粉色再度回归“男人装”。而事实上，粉色一点都不“娘”，它甚至曾是贵族男人最爱的颜色。
As Philip Schofield frequently shows on TV show This Morning, there is nothing like the marriage of a pink shirt and silver hair to get a daytime television viewer hot under the collar.
It isn't just ageing television presenters who have a thing for dressing in pink though. Rapper Tinie Tempah has shown he isn't afraid to wear a suit that's shaded like a bottle of Pepto Bismol...and David Beckham has been snapped on multiple occasions wearing pink attire.
Radio 4 show Woman's Hour suggested that pink, traditionally - and irritatingly for many - associated with little girls, is getting a make-over, having been rediscovered by the world's fashion houses.
No longer sickly sweet, the couture pinks striding up and down the world's catwalks are more likely to be carry names like 'dusky rose' or 'millennial pink' and vary from strong mid colours, to the most delicate shades of it.
Jane Monington Boddy, Director Of Colour and Womenswear at ?WGSN, told Woman's Hour host Jane Garvey that the colour has been enjoying a rebirth since 2011.
She explained: 'Pink has been evolving for quite a few years - millennial pink has a duskier shade but we've seen a variety of pinks from millennial to brights. '
'Pink started to make an entrance in 2011. Prior to 2011, I'd only seen it being worn on little girls.' Author of The Secret Lives of Colour, Kassia St Clair, told listeners that the idea of boys wearing pink actually isn't particularly original.
'It's quite a conflicted colour. Pink is basically pale red and you don't really have names for pale yellow or pale green, for example, but somehow faded red got its own label.
'Before the mid 20th century and particularly in the 19th century, if there was a colour more likely to be associated with little boys, it was more likely to be pink because faded red is a very militaristic colour.
'Pale blue because it was associated with the Virgin Mary was a girl's colour. This got muddled over the turn of the century.'
