Bright red lips will always be in style, but we couldn't help noticing all the super-dark shades of crimson and scarlet that went down the catwalk last February, and which celebs like Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth have adopted. At Gucci, models sported dramatic dark red lips with pale complexions and whited-out brows.
