Sometimes all it takes is a twist on a classic. This week that classic was red lipstick, a high-impact hue that proved just as stunning with a tinge of orange, pink or blue. Camilla Belle looked flawlessly elegant wearing a brick shade in a matte formula that offered the perfect counterpoint to her high-sheen hair, luminous complexion and gold sequined dress. Jessica Chastain and Janelle Monae were pretty in pink and graphic lined eyes, which worked both with Chastain's feminine floral dress and Monae's menswear-inspired suit and tie. Poppy Delevingne and Kristen Stewart swiped on a glossy crimson that was seductive in an entirely new way than a go-to scarlet and reminded us that sometimes it's truly worth taking the color wheel for a spin.
