We're not exactly scientists, but we believe there has to be correlation between a red lipstick-wearing TV characters and their subsequent fierceness. Whether it's Lucy Ricardo delivering rollicking one-liners or Joan Harris kicking ass and taking names in the office, these 7 fictional heroines are as red-hot as their pouts.
Lucy Ricardo in I Love Lucy (1951-1960)
The slapstick star may not take herself too seriously, but she never messed around when it came to beauty. She accentuated her signature ginger coif with a swipe of bright red lipstick.
