R&B: White

The first of all single colors is white ... We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no color can be seen; yellow for the earth; green for water; blue for air; red for fire; and black for total darkness." -- Leonardo Da Vinci

Simplicity is beautiful.
Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger, Elizabeth, The Ditchley Portrait, 1592
Elizabeth aka "The Virgin Queen" was one of the first to figure out the power of PR. She made sure that she was portrayed wearing white to keep up her image.
