I hear that a lot. Now that pink is in fashion, as a blonde, I do look good in pink. Other women have made that comment several times in the last week.
I just hate it though. I want to look good in black and be a dangerous femme fatale like Black Widow.

As an athlete in a performance sport that crosses over into entertainment, Dance Coach is more conscious of color and style than the other men (lunkhead engineers) I know.
So far I know about Dance Coach:
1. He likes my hair up (Last week he told me he liked my hair in a french braid.)
2. He likes a lot of makeup (Before my test, while I was wearing more makeup than I've worn in 40 years, I asked, 'Too much makeup?' 'More,' he said.)
3. I look good in pink. (True.)
So, for performance reasons I understand his comments. The up-do gives me a nice line on the neck. I'm not particularly swan necked, but it's a nice slender neck. The 'more' makeup is because blondes tend to look washed out on the ice. I've seen video of myself skating; My face is a little white blob with dark pinpoints for eyes.
And the pink? Well, that heightens the color in my face and keeps it from looking quite so elderly. Always a good move.
So, next test-- hair up, lots of makeup, black test dress.
Puhlease... you didn't think I actually pay attention to everything he says do you?
