This past year in a Kate Aspen survey, brides to be told us that the color blue was their top pick for wedding colors.  Fashion designers and the runways agree – blue is the top color for fashions next year as well.  But just don’t think of your standard blue – beautiful, saturated shades are making the list.

Not only is the fashion world screaming blue, but also the top stylists for America’s leading women also find this color to be fabulous.  Take a look at both Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain – both wore shades of blue for speeches during this past Presidential election campaign.
