With all the talk of Fall’s dark berry mouth, red lipstick has been getting a little bit of the shaft lately. But the classic crimson color that helped usher in lipstick’s mainstream resurgence after ten years of sheer-gloss dominance is still plenty popular, as evidenced by a pair of pretty scarlet pouts on view last night. Alexa Chung turned up to the Hôtel Americano in New York to fête Saint James’ capsule collection with Barneys and its new flagship store wearing a stamped-on tomato pigment, à la the Marc By Marc Jacobs Fall show, while Naomi Watts opted for a darker ruby hue at the opening of the Venice Film Festival. Which return to red do you like better?
