Bravo Penelope for wearing vintage!
'Penélope Cruz is among the stellar leading ladies in Rob Marshall’s Nine, which also stars Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Kate Hudson.
At its New York premiere, Cruz made a bold statement in a vintage Chanel goddess gown accessorized with pear-shaped diamond chandelier earrings from Chopard.'
I think her stylist should have chosen a deeper color red for her lipstick and have to agree with Debutante Clothing that it would have made a big difference if only the lipstick had been the correct shade, it was after all, very important in that era.
For instance, Chanel has a Red N°5, Armani Cosmetics carries a Matte Silk Lipstick No. 9, Nars's Fire Down Below...
Some of my vintage loving friends swear by MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red.
I wore Revlon's Cherries In The Snow for many years.
Then there are the shades by an old brand called Poppy, by Poppy King originating in Australia and now in the US and online. The brand in now called Lipstick Queen, they are typical 1940's colours.
What is your favorite shade of red lipstick?
