Let's be honest: Bright pink lips have never quite achieved the same notoriety or respect as a red mouth. They're associated with Barbie, grannies in Palm Beach, and all things Paris Hilton. In other words, not fashionable.
But we think all that's about to change once you feast your eyes on the ravishing pink lips seen at the Dior 2011 Cruise show (check out the photos above and below), which took place in Shanghai over the weekend. We spotted several different vivid shades at the show, from a '60s powdery pink to a traffic-stopping fuchsia. Paired with the La Nouvelle Vague-inspired clothes and the Bardot-esque hair, the overall effect was both cool and sex kittenish. Not to mention, more light-hearted than it would have been had those same ole' red lips been reincarnated once again.
