Would You Wear Black Lipstick?

Posted on

While we’re sure to see some of the front row stars — including Elisha Cuthbert, Ali Larter and Ginnifer Goodwin– decked out in her gorgeous sequined dresses, we were more intrigued by the spooky makeup at the recent Imitation of Christ show in L.A. Always pushing the envelope, designer Tara Subkoff’s models rocked pouty black lips down a bone-strewn runway to convey what the designer described as a “goth princess ballerina look.” The inspiration came from fond memories of the black lipstick she wore as a rebellious teenager. If (like us) you’re not ready to take the plunge for a full-on black lip, Tara also played up the vampy vibe by using Smashbox Cosmetic’s sheer grape lipstick in “Enchanting.” The shade was a gift-bag freebie for her front row guests, and it’s available online at Tell us: Would you ever wear black lipstick?
