Yesterday's Imitation of Christ show took LA by storm - literally. With swirling capes, tempest-tossed hair, and faux bones scattered along the runway, the show was a fashion tornado that infused Los Angeles with a goth-glam feel captured most powerfully by - of all things - a lipstick. Smashbox Cosmetics collaborated with Tara Subkoff to create a limited edition shade just for her gorgeous gloomsters, applied alone to make the color of bloody velvet, or stacked with slick black pigment for a look we'll call Buffy the Vampire Player. According to Enid at LA.com, the lipstick is called Enchanting, and isn't yet available - unless you were at the show, in which case, it was found in your gift bag!

The Imitation Might be Better Than the Original
Tara Subkoff's designs haven't seen a runway since 2006, when she ended up selling her company, Imitation of Christ, and leaving shortly thereafter. The Last Days of Disco star was then diagnosed with a brain tumor requiring surgery, which she thankfully recovered from. Now, with her health and her company back, Tara has resurrected her old label as, simply, Imitation, to the extreme giddiness of her long-time fans (us). Our expectations were fairly high, and they were met.
