Worn by peacocks like Sterling K. Brown, KJ Apa and Jason Momoa, the hue is the color of the moment for stylish stars.

Hollywood is ready to think pink — for men. Jason Momoa wore a pink velvet suit (and scrunchie) by Fendi to the Oscars. Alex Rodriguez chose a brightly hued pink ensemble by Tom Ford when celebrating Jennifer Lopez's Las Vegas residency. And Riverdale's KJ Apa donned a custom Ermenegildo Zegna XXX pink suit at the People's Choice Awards last month.
