Think Pink with DeJuan Stroud

In 1957, Funny Face‘s Maggie Prescott commanded us to “think pink!” long before the phrase became a hashtag. DeJuan Stroud’s punchy floral design inspires us to rewatch the classic movie scene

“Banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige. From now on, girls, THINK PINK!” Funny Face (1957)

New York floral and event designer DeJuan Stroud’s flirtatious arrangement of sweet peas and garden roses beckons us to think pink, à la Kay Thompson as fashion editor Maggie Prescott in Funny Face. Watch the scene!
