Only the brave wear hot pants, but red lips we can all handle. The oh-so-flashy influences of the '70s (tomato lips, smoky eyes, swingy locks) claimed the runways at Diane von Furstenberg and Altuzarra. At Gucci, the theme was decadent luxury à la Anjelica Huston in all her Studio 54 glory, so makeup master Pat McGrath coated models' upper and lower lashes with CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara, then layered on the lipstick: A true red was tapped onto the center of the mouth over a deep wine shade "to add shape and dimension." And at Jason Wu, manicurist Roxanne Valinoti upped the glam factor by lacquering nails with a blend of CND's Dark Ruby and Bloodline, then tipped the ends with Gold Chrome.
