We're slightly scared of a red lip because it looks so deliberate, but a bold lip color does have some advantages: If you're wearing it, the rest of your makeup routine can be minimal. In fact, we're starting to think a scarlet lip is the makeup version of a sheath dress - pick it up off the floor, put it on, and head immediately out the door. So it's with particular interest that we note Kate Moss' makeup routine for London's V&A Ball, which is basically like the Met Ball with better Westwood. Though we didn't care as much for Kate's vintage Dior couture (sorry!), we adored the red-lip-nude-face routine that looks terribly grown-up, not horribly made-up. And it seems the trend will stick - Last night, we spotted red lips on the mannequins at TopShop, too!
