Nicola Roberts Turned into Living Canvas of Indigo Night by Dulux

Girls Aloud star, colour ambassador and style mentor, Nicola Roberts, has brought new meaning to ‘January Blues’ by being transformed into a canvas of Indigo Night to announce 2013’s Colour of the Year – as predicted by a global panel of experts from leading paint brand, Dulux.

Nicola’s signature porcelain skin and flame red hair contrast boldly with a custom set, styling and make-up compilation which are all entirely Indigo.  No actual paint was used on Nicola's  skin - The body ‘paint’ effect was achieved using a  air-brush make-up application through costume lace to create a unique body art effect.

The specific colour, Indigo Night, was predicted following extensive research by an 18-strong panel of global colour and trend experts who specialise in different areas of colour use.
 Collectively the team scours the globe, exploring a broad range of different cultures and industries including interiors, fashion, beauty, design and even social and economic influences.  The result is an annual trend forecast known as ColourFutures, which depicts five key trends for the year ahead and one true Colour of the Year, competing with the world’s leading trend authorities.

Louise Smith, Dulux Senior Global Colour Designer, comments: “We’re currently living in turbulent times and this is having an effect on the colours we want to wrap ourselves and our homes in. Blue is a key fashion colour for 2013 and is set to be a wardrobe and interior favourite throughout the year. Indigo adds a surprising, elegant strength and shows you are quietly confident with colour, which is why we felt Nicola would be the perfect ambassador for Indigo Night; an advocate of being bold with her natural colour and champion of colour in her everyday life.” 

To celebrate the announcement of Indigo Night as the Colour of the Year, Dulux is offering a limited supply of free testers, which can be ordered online through
