Alice blue

Alice Blue is a pale blue favored by Alice Roosevelt Longworth, an American painter and daughter of Theodore Roosevelt, and caused a fashion sensation in the United States. Inspired by Longworth’s signature gown, the wildly successful Alice Blue Gown debuted in Harry Tierney’s 1919 Broadway musical Irene. The musical was filmed in 1940, starring Anna Neagle and Ray Milland. The color is designated by the United States Navy for use on the ensign and decoration of the USS Theodore Roosevelt. “AliceBlue” is also one of the original X11 color names from 1987, which has become the basis for color descriptions in web design. This particular shade of blue is also called white-blue (or blue-white) and ice/blue-ice due to its very light coloration with a hint of green, like real ice.
