You heard us, we said fashion forward. There’s no replacing the king and queen, black and white, but Princess Pink is now fully evolved and ready to take her rightful spot in fashion. Less poofy, more minimalist, and downright stylish, pink has stepped into the It territory and we are obsessed. Below we enlisted the help of Jessica Diaz Wilson—the often under the radar, always on stealth-mode-when-cameras-are-near sister of George—to show us how to wear it.

Pink Tip: Introducing the LPD. Kill all the sissy old pink standards by opting for a sexy frock sans the lace.
“I get dressed in about 15 minutes, sometimes the outfits make sense, sometimes not so much. I do my routine 5 minute makeup look in the car which consists of tinted sunblock, lots of mascara, brow products and eyeliner.”
Her cousin, Martine describes Jessica's style as effortless, Jessica says it's only because she likes sleeping in, which causes her to end up rushing in the morning. We say, girls like her just have classic taste, natch! The same goes with her fresh look and I-woke-up-like-this 'do. Jessica's no fuss beauty levels with her It cousins and sister (she could choose the same career path in showbiz if she wanted to.) But she followed her heart all the way to L’Oreal and landed herself a job that complements her interests. “Modeling was never something I saw myself committing to fulltime.” After getting accepted into its management program back in 2013, she just couldn’t say no to the company and is now the Junior Product Manager for Lancome, a job she says keeps her on her toes.

Pink Tip: It's all about finding the right shade of pink. Pick the kind of pink that's so light, it's almost white. It won't scream baby girl and still have that fresh factor white and pastel hues give off.
On her personal style:
"I'm not sure how to describe it exactly but when I do put more effort, it usually comes out to be classic with a bit of playful/youngness to it. "
Did you know she played competitive basketball for 8 years? Well those were the days because this modelesque athlete is now a doll in full bloom. "These days, I just do the usual gym cardio workouts and every other night, I'll join Martine in her room for some YouTube 10 minute ab and butt workouts."
Speaking of Martine, if you read about that time we invaded her room, you'll know that the two live together with their dogs Bronson and Shadow.The chore she hates the most? "Every morning at 6am on the dot, my dog Shadow wakes me up to go pee. I would love to ignore him and continue on with my sleep but he makes it impossible. So I have to get out of bed and bring him outside to do his business, me half asleep. I feel like I have a child."

Pink Tip: Toughen up the extremely feminine color by using edgy accessories like an ear cuff or tomboy elements like sneakers. P.S. The pink trend is not to be confused with punk. Please no.
Harlan + Holden front slit Irving dress, P4950; High cut Converse Chuck Taylor, P2099
Pink Tip: Minimalist anything is all the rage this season so a shapeless maxi with an interesting twist like a front slit will get the job done.
If you could stay at any age forever, what age would that be and why?
"I love where I am now. At 25, I'm happy with what I have achieved with my life and am content with where I am. Its a fun age to be where I would consider myself in between youth and becoming an adult I guess? I have my own place, a great job, best people around me.. I think I'm at a good age."
