What does 'el mundo rosa' mean?

I know literally translated it means 'the pink world' but does it refer to some kind of abstract concept?

I found it in an article referring to celebrities and it was 'los personajes del mundo rosa'.

¡Gracias! grin

I believe this relates to the celebrity world. where everything is perfect and expensive, everyone has a perfect record, nothing bad happens, etc. You know, the way the media portrays the famous people in the world. those people are and are part of "el mundo rosa"

It sounds as though it might stem from the same root idea as our english "rose-coloured glasses".

In other words, if you are looking at the world through rose coloured glasses, you only see the good parts - a "pink world"?

That's funny I was wondering the same thing, Sheila...I was just considering posting another thread to ask whether the idiom "rose-colored glasses" or something similar existed in Spanish :) - Izanoni1, DIC 9, 2009
Yeah - I did wonder if that was the case as well! - kirstenalexander, DIC 9, 2009
You should do that - I'd like to know too. - sheila-foster, DIC 9, 2009

Nice post Kirsten, yes, that is the pink press world...el mundo rosa.
