With the December announcement of Pantone’s Color of the year for 2013, we’re practically green with glee.  Why?  Because, this distinct shade of luscious green, a “happy-go-lucky” hue, was the theme behind our Holiday cover feature, inspired by the upcoming movie: “OZ, The Great & Powerful.”  Emerald green is the it color for 2013, and NOUVEAU is psyched to have been ahead of the curve.

Not waiting until 2013 to begin the drool fest, we are starting now as we wrap up the year, with all sorts of emerald inspired accessories, style picks and awesome finds as part of our top editor’s picks countdown.  Did we mention, there’s a full on OZ inspired styled shoot gallery, as well?  Go ahead, be green with envy!
