Battle Of The Red Lips: Who Wore It Best?

These ladies really knocked em' dead last night with their red lips. I used to have a theory that red lips only look great on gals with blue eyes, but of course, every rule has an exception. Just look how pretty Anne Hathaway looks at the Oscars.

Here's my list of the contenders in the battle of the red lips. We've got Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth, Nicole, Kirsten Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rachel Weisz. Who do you think wore it best?

Anne is the best to me. I don't like shocking red with a shocking red outfit. It is a fight between your lips and the outfit for focus. I like the silver dress on Rachel, but her lipstick was almost muddy. She needed the right red for her beautiful complexion. Nicole would have been #1, but her hair color is not right. She looks washed out. She has naturally curly hair and this bone straight hair look is very severe on her with the reds fighting for attention. It's a slight miss. With a little bit of refining, her look would be just right. She has so many things that are just stunning to look to view.

Anne Hathaway's lipstick is good!

Maggie's "bitch red" works the best with those sparkling blues eyes. When it comes to red, there's RED and then there's red. I tend to go for the former, and if it ain't like that, avoid red altogether and go with something different. If you can't pull off bitch red, then sorry, it's just not for you.

Anne, but Nicole is a close second. I'm not a big fan of the red lips, but Anne's lips weren't too red, and Nicoles's matched her dress perfectly. I thought it looked awful on Kirsten though.

Anne. We've seen it on "The Devil wears Prada", red lipstick compliments those dark eyes and hair.

Kirsten and Rachel's lips are too dark and harsh, imo. Love all the rest, with Nicole as my fave.

Something is very wrong with Kirsten Dunst. She has a great figure: why is she always dressed like a rag doll? -the ceeg
