The one trend that brought unity to the diverse and eclectic looks at this year’s Met Gala was the almost universally adopted dark lip. From those feeling a little shy and going for a glossy plum, to those feeling bold enough to embrace matte, burgundy tones, all eyes were on the perfectly painted pouts of the A List.
A statement lip celebrated after Fashion Week, when models at Giles and Emanuel Ungaro worked gothic, dark lips, we're excited to see it taking hold on the red carpet.
For too long has the dark lip had connotations of being overly gothic or being just for the colder months, but its springtime embracing by the cream of the Hollywood crop looks set to change that. It's easy to idolise a trend on the catwalk, but in real-life practice it can be harder.
