Mean Girls Day may have been on October 3rd, but that doesn't mean we can't still reference one of the most iconic contributions to pop culture as we now know it. 

However, the "on Wednesdays, we wear pink" line seems to have gotten a twist in 2019, as red has come into the picture. We saw this at the 2019 Emmy Awards when coincidentally, more than one A-lister showed up in red and pink gowns. 

And on the cover of the November issue of Harper's Bazaar US, Reese Witherspoon is seen wearing oodles of pink and red ruffles by Alexander McQueen.

So it's safe to say that mixing our reds with our pinks like a jar of Woolies Valentines's Day sweets is the cool wave we'll be riding this summer. I mean, the material below speaks for itself.
