At last night’s Met gala, there was something noticeably missing—and we’re not talking about Ashley Olsen’s absence or a lack of feathered dresses (there were plenty of those). We’re talking specifically about the bounty of red lips you except to see at these functions, which were simply nowhere to be found. In their place: Fall’s favorite black cherry pout. There were a few bold crimsons in the crowd to speak of, on Carolyn Murphy and Doutzen Kroes specifically. But for the most part, it was all about mulberry mouths, which were spotted on everyone from Jessica Chastain, Rachel Zoe, and Amber Valletta to Camilla Belle, Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Alba. We’re not usually in the horn-tooting business, but…we told you so.
