A Little Red Lipstick Goes a Long Way


I was heading uptown on Madison Avenue when I noticed this gorgeous woman walk by. I saw a flash of red lipstick, and knew I had to turn around and ask if I could take her photo. The Advanced Style ladies always tell me that a bright shade of  red lipstick is the best accessory. I think this woman is proof of that theory, don’t you?

    So gorgeous!

  • Red lippy looks amazing at any age and this gorgeous woman proves it!

  • Absolutely. I find it difficult to paint the lips in red (always messy) but this woman will be my role model.

  • I think her nails also carry that pop of red too and looks just fabulous.

  • Gorgeous! I love the red nails and lipstick, it looks fab with against the coffee coloured background of her tunic and straw hat.

  • The red lipstick gave a special touch in this look extraordinarily elegant lady. Beautiful!

  • Lipstick is a "Must" at almost any age over thirty, and especially when the hair turns silver and the teint more faint. This Lady looks very elegant and vivid – a mélange that is not so often to be seen. She looks interesting and interested.

    How simple yet elegant the outfit is. You can tell this lovely lady pays attention to detail and is fastidious about grooming with her beautifully applied lipstick and nail polish.

  • She is beautiful – as are all the ladies on your blog. Thanks for finding these inspiring women.

  • What a gorgeous monochromatic look – the color is so rich it looks edible. And the pop of red lips and nails perfects it. Just lovely!

    Great bones! Great lips! Wish I had a mouth like hers – turning 60 next month and my upper lip, never very big to begin with, has practically disappeared! When I wear lipstick it looks like I've only half a mouth! A beautiful woman, elegantly outfitted and comfortable in her own skin! That's the best kind of beauty.

  • i am blown away by not only how beautiful and well styled she is, but how there is something playful about her expression. she is exquisite. and i do so love how the red lips and nails look against her perfectly pale skin. such an example of aging beautifully!

  • The red lipstick looks stunning especially against the chic neutrals she is wearing. Also like the hat

  • Ditto to all the above comments!

  • You have found some wonderful women who continue to look gorgeous no matter what their ages. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Hi Ari. I love the hat and coat she is wearing. Very very chic and the little purse, very nice. Her bangles too make the picture. She has outlined her lips beautifully and the the red lipstick and nail polish really complete the picture. She has warm looking eyes. Did I tell you I went out and got red lipstick and matching nail polish? Well I did.:)) Have a great day. She is just so beautiful.

  • I agree with the rest, red lips and nails rock!

  • The lips and nails! I think great nails are an asset at any age! She is beautiful!

  • She is breath taking! And I always wear red lips..from deep pinkish red to the deeper darker…it is a signature staple for me.

    She looks just perfect! I love red lipstick and am always on the hunt for the perfect shade for me. She's found hers. Lovely.

  • She looks stunning. I have just scrolled through you blog and I love it. WOW

  • Beautiful! I love her jacket too. And I'm always envious of women who know just how to pose for a photo. She does it perfectly, with just a hint of a smile.

  • AS A CHILD GROWING UP, I REMEMBER MY MOTHER WEARING NO MAKE UP, JUST RED LIPSTICK. SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF 7, AND PROBABLY KNEW IF SHE HAD NO TIME TO DO ANYTHING ELSE… THE RED LIPS WERE A MUST. SHE WAS A SMART LADY.

    I ALWAYS REMEMBER HER WHEN I SEE RED LIPS.

    HUGS FROM MY HEART

  • yes, indeed! she's vibrant.

  • Nan

    Oh my she is just stunning!

  • I like the red on her lips & fingernails, but as for me it would be smeared & look horrid.

  • First time here! Amazing!!!!! Hello from Rio.

  • Ari…..I love your blog! And yes, red lipstick, along with the lipliner as this lady has so exquisitely applied, is something I never leave home without!!!
    Kudos to you for appreciating ageless, timeless beauty, and the wisdom to express it.

  • It's beautifully applied!

  • She looks so familiar, but oh so elegant. Lovely picture

  • ML

    Lovely! She is very nicely dressed and she has the perfect touch for make up. Gorgeous. I wish to be dressed elegant when I grow old 🙂

    xoxo

  • What a tremendous gift you are giving to the world! Your blog is phenomenal. Both of my grandmothers looked after themselves beautifully and their finishing touch was always a pop of deep red lipstick. Fierce!
    Thank you for all you do!

  • Ah, you can't beat a slash of red lippie. She looks so elegant with the matching nails.

  • she is a beautiful woman!
