Purple On Purple: A Discussion
After the strong showing of mulberry mouths at this week’s Met gala, it’s pretty clear that Fall’s favorite lip color will have legs off the runway. But there are times when it works—on Camilla Belle, paired with a gilded Ralph Lauren gown and a low-slung, deep chestnut chignon—and those when it doesn’t, i.e., when you try to match your lip color to your hair color. At last night’s NARM Music Biz Awards dinner in L.A., Katy Perry got a little carried away with her newfound love of lavender locks and slicked on a similarly hued bordeaux lipstick to complement her groomed brows and smoked-out eyes. It’s a little…much, no?
