On Thursday Pantone announced Tangerine Tango is the official color of 2012.
The Pantone Color Institute's executive director said of the "reddish orange" hue:
"Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it. Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."
Wow. Girlfriend knows her adjectives!
