A Look We’ll Not Be Seeing in the Suburbs, Methinks

By Glinda

Yes, this is what Galliano for Dior showed yesterday on the runway in Paris for his spring/summer 2011 collection.

For a runway, perfect.

For a night on the town, not so much.

Will we be seeing red lips straight into summer?

I don’t know.  For some reason, red does not say summer to me.

What do I know, though? Maybe every trip to the grocery store for the next six months will include painting on red eyebrows.  Or getting ready for every soccer game will require a dramatic red cat-eye. 

But the look is stunning nonetheless. Love it.

  1. Little Red Says:

    Red lips are always in style. For summer, a sheer red lip would be one way to go.

    But the classic red lip and strong brow look is always very flattering.

  2. Glinda Says:

    Agreed that red lips are always “in” but I can’t behind the vinyl-red look going on in this show for summer.

    My cherry Guerlain lipstick is about as red as I’m willing to go in the summer, and only because it’s got quite a bit of shimmer to it.

    For some reason, I think of peach and pink lipstick for summer, but I’m sure that’s just my own personal quirk.

  3. Rachel Says:

    I LOVE red lips in summer. Possibly more than any other time. Love it with really casual outfits, like cutoffs, white v-neck, flat sandals or sneakers without socks and sunglasses. Or sundresses or just about whatever I’m wearing.
