Get Lippy

My new fashion favourite, Georgia May Jagger, is never caught dead without her red lippy. Just like Mum, this Jerry Hall junior knows that a scarlet pout is the perfect accessory to any outfit.

As a little girl, watching my mother apply and re-apply her red lipstick was as glamorous and sophisticated as it got. While some regard the colour as a garish casualty of the 80s, it conjures up images of Coco Chanel and Marilyn Monroe for me. Chic and sexy, wearing red lipstick can transport you onto the set of Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love video, render the wearer ‘arty,’ or make them feel polished and ladylike. Modern day sirens Scarlett Johansen, Kathryn Heigl, Dita Von Teese and Anne Hathaway are all fans of ruby lips and if it’s good enough for DVT, it’s good enough for me. Mwah.
