The May issue of W has a '60s-inspired photo shoot that's inspired by one of my least favorite beauty icons, Brigitte Bardot. (Yes, she was physically attractive, but five indictments for "inciting racial hatred" spoil it for me.) Model Lara Stone shares her trademark gap-toothed pout as always, but this time it's haloed with that '90s throwback look: dark lip liner surrounding pale lipstick.
Fashion editorials usually push the boundaries, so don't expect this style to roar back for everyday wear anytime soon. Then again, I wouldn't have thought that acid wash jeans would be the hot style for PYTs, either, so what do I know? I'll enjoy seeing this look in magazines, but for real life, I'll pass. And you?
