Shocking pink
#fc0fc0

Shocking pink is bold and intense. It takes its name from the tone of pink used in the lettering on the box of the perfume called Shocking,[40] designed by Leonor Fini for the Surrealist fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli in 1937.[41] The color shown at right matches the color of the lettering on the original box.[42][43] This in turn was inspired by the Tête de Belier (Ram's Head), a 17.27 ct pink diamond from Cartier owned by heiress Daisy Fellowes,[44] who was one of Schiaparelli's best clients.

Shocking pink kept its name in British English,[40] whereas in North America "This intense magenta was called shocking pink in the 1930s, hot pink in the 1950s, and kinky pink in the 1960s...[it] has appeared in the vanguard of more than one youth revolution...to some it sings, to others it screams".[45] This color is now again called "shocking pink" to distinguish it from the web color hot pink (shown above).

NHRA drag racer Shirley Muldowney was famous for driving a shocking pink dragster.[citation needed]

On its way into the German language, shocking pink lost the "shocking" and is called only "Pink"; the color that is called "pink" in English is called "rosa" in German as it is in most other Indo-European languages. A similar situation happens in Portuguese, but its nomenclature may also arrive intact, becoming "rosa-choque" ("shocking pink"). Brazilians may also call all darker and hot tones of pink "rosa-pink".
