In Lieu of All Else Red Lipstick

The Parisians have always had a unique take on makeup, never quite natural but certainly not done up, and that neither too much nor too little aesthetic has manifested itself in the strong presence of very red lips on the Spring 2009 catwalks as dare we say the sole focal point of the season's beauty. Maison Martin Margiela's anonymous model with its red lips however brings up a more interesting point for us, in that what we view as feminine in an increasingly gender conflicted world can so often come down to cultural signifiers or simplistic markers. Paris would seem to be telling us that in lieu of all else look to the red lips.
