There's been much buzz on the interwebs about Rihanna's Italian Vogue couture shots by Steven Klein. The nudity! The bondage! The muzzle! While I generally think the pictures are all-around fabulous, I couldn't help but focus on her practically opaque white lips in this particular shot. I also just spotted a chalky pink version of this lip in the September issue of Russh. Instantly I had flashbacks to my middle school days of Revlon's Silver City Pink, Zinc Pink, and Frosted Brownie. These three shades were must-wears for all of my friends, skin tone be damned. Given that my skin is pale to the point of translucent at times, I don't see how I could pull off either of these two examples. But what about you guys? Should we all start mixing a little white into our favorite matte shades this fall? Maybe I'll give it a try with one of my darker hues and see how it goes. What do you think? Can the editorial trend translate?
