Prada s/s 2010
Chanel Haute Couture s/s 2010
We’re loving pastels for spring, but we have to admit that we always want to rock a bold lip on those special nights out on the town. However, we’ve moved on from the dark black-cherry shades and we’re ready for something a little more colourful. And it looks like Chanel and Prada are, too!
We spotted red lips on the runway at Chanel’s haute couture show at Paris Fashion Week, which looked so cheerful against all of Karl Lagerfeld’s sparkly-white and pale-rose coloured gowns. All of the models looked like life-sized porcelain dolls – and we don’t mean that in a creepy way at all! Think more ethereal-beauty, like angelic Emma Watson,and less Bride of Chucky.
Could this trend be a spin off from Prada’s rust-coloured lips? At first we were hesitant to add a little pumpkin to our pout, but now we want to go for glamour with a range of reds!
And we’ve got some good news for cherry-lip lovers who loved the Chanel look: we learned that Karl’s muses wore a bright lip colour named Genial, which will be coming to stores this summer as part of the coveted Rouge Allure line. We can't wait!
