A Red-Carpet Red Lip-Off

-------

New York was definitely not feeling the lipstick love at the Spring shows last month. But once the fashion circuit moved to Europe, painted pouts ruled the runways once more—and continue to dominate the red carpet. A host of big-billing events last night saw a gaggle of A-listers pull out their best bullets for a few seconds in front of the flashbulbs, and with a number of nods to classic Hollywood glamour, scarlet and crimson colors ruled, yielding three stellar mouth moments: In New York, Solange Knowles opted for a bright, matte cerise at the Angel Ball, while Taylor Swift chose a glossy cherry to release her new CD, which is, uncoincidentally, called Red. But Amanda Seyfried’s makeup at the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards gala in L.A. just might be our favorite, as she worked the soft-focus, blurred-around-the-edges, rose petal red that Lucia Pieroni made famous backstage at Rochas. But maybe that’s just us. Which do you prefer?
