Celebrities have been smiling in berry and pink lips on the red carpets all summer long. But the women in this week’s spotlight puckered up to a new hue: nude. Jessica Biel made the most dramatic statement in the color, wearing a matte version so pale it nearly blended in with her alabaster complexion. Blunt bangs, straight tresses and a cat-eye completed the minimal look. Kate Beckinsale wore seemingly the same shade, but gave it a sexy spin with her blonde highlights that popped from her go-to curls, shimmery illuminator above her heavily lined eye and on her cheekbones and a swipe of gloss on the shade itself. Jordin Sparks, Camilla Belle and Jennifer Lopez added a touch of pink to the tone for a less groundbreaking, but equally gorgeous take on the style. It may be too soon to say whether nude will become a trend as we move into fall, but these ladies definitely made a case for beauty in the buff.
