Throwback Thursday: Moss’ Mulberry Mouth
Throwback Thursday is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Kate Moss
The Moment: Burgundy lips, in their original glory.
The Motivation: Not that we need a reason to celebrate Ms. Moss’ illustrious career, but the super-est of them all did celebrate her thirty-ninth birthday this week and hasn’t lost a beat since she shot this 1993 editorial for Vogue Paris. If the four hundred-plus pages in her recently released tome Kate: The Kate Moss Book weren’t enough visual evidence, this shot is yet another reminder of the ingenue’s timeless appeal: Fall’s favorite burgundy lipstick looks fresh and new on a 19-year-old Kate, who paired the pigment with clear, luminous skin, subtly lined eyes framed by thin, darkened brows, and a black Yves Saint Laurent topper that Hedi Slimane updated for his Spring 2013 Saint Laurent show. No wonder Moss was such an outspoken fan of the designer’s first collection.
