Celebrity gossip websites noticed a prevalent red carpet trend at the 2012 Met Gala on Monday—dark lips!
Do you love it or do you hate it?
A handful of female stars at the glamorous red carpet event decided to make a bold, dramatic statement by opting to wear vampy dark lipstick.
Leading the flock were actresses Camilla Belle, who paired her sexy, cleavage-baring gown with a glossy chocolate brown lipstick, and Kate Bosworth, who matched her ombre Prada mini dress with a dark plum shade.
Like Kate, “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester went with a dark plum lip color, which provided an unexpected contrast to her nude and gold Marchesa gown.
Jessica Alba, meanwhile, went with a wine red color, which went nicely with her gold dress, and newcomer Lana Del Rey, who wore a black cape and a sparkly silver gown, chose a striking burgundy lipstick.
Not quite as vampy as the others but still in the realm of “dark lips” were those of “Most Desirable Woman of 2012” Sofia Vergara and model Karlie Kloss, who both wore dark purplish pink lip colors.
We are really loving this makeup trend… it’s high time we got over the whole nude lip thing, right?
Let’s leave that to Kim Kardashian.
What do you think of these vampy dark lips?
