The Times UK has a very funny roundup of "The Year in Fashion," proclaiming Sienna and (pregnant?!) Lily Allen as favorite style icons and Kate Moss as a major fashion trooper. But the bottom of the story is where it gets interesting, as our idol Lisa Armstrong proclaims lip gloss to be dead. She compares Juicy Tubes and Lip Venom to porn star chic, but we link it with Rihanna, Heatherette, and The Hills - maybe not the chicest of choices, but one that's fun, youthful, and easy to wear with heavy eyeliner or a low cut dress. Granted, both of those things appear frequently at The Playboy Mansion, but they're also standard for a Friday night out. But maybe this is one of those examples when London trends and American ones don't quite stack up - we still haven't fully embraced Beth Ditto, soccer, or wearing feathered veils to church. In which case, perhaps a fresh coat of lip varnish is downright patriotic... or at least practical, since we use it instead of Chapstick in the winter.
