Confronting The Red Army

-------


Full disclosure: We are among the bandwagoneers to embrace the red lip over the past few years as it has steadily made a mainstream comeback. No more sheer gloss for us, thanks. When it comes to important public appearances, we see red—the more opaque and brighter the better. But as the old standby continues to regain popular favor, we’re beginning to wonder if it’s less statement-making when everyone at your party also has it painted on. Case in point: At amfAR’s inaugural Milan fashion week event last night, we spotted at least four crimson pouts, in glossy and matte incarnations and in a shade range that included Dita Von Teese’s pink-red and Linda Evangelista’s orange-tinged hue. Should we start embracing the rainbow of lip offerings that have made repeat appearances on the runway, or can red really be universal and totally unique at the same time?
