Of all the looks to aim for on the red carpet, this one pretty much defines "traffic stopping." I'm convinced that Scarlett Johansson had her lipstick custom blended to match her dress for the Los Angeles premiere of Vicky Cristina Barcelona — I've never ever seen a match quite this exact before! One thing's for sure: This voluptuous young actress has confidence. Her head-to-toe temptress ensemble proves that she isn't afraid to show off her foxy curves and full pout for the crowd. What do you think about Scarlett's bold lipstick?
Red lips are having a moment right now, but a classic red lip never really goes out of style. I used to be intimidated by wearing them, but now they're in regular rotation—and they're especially festive for this time of year.
So when Molly R. Stern offered some tips on creating the perfect red lip, I jumped at the chance to share them with you. Molly is CoverGirl's celebrity makeup artist, and she's touched the faces of celebrities such as Ellen Barkin, Heather Graham, Renee Zellweger and Kirsten Dunst.

The typically demure Diane Kruger wore this season's red "it" lip to Condé Nast Movies Rock. With her perfect skin, sparkling smile and bright eyes, I think she pulled it off beautifully. I also happen to really like her pale pink lips at the GQ Turns 50 celebration party as well as her natural and shiny coral-colored lipstick from the 64th Venice Film Festival. I can't decide what shade of lipstick I like best on her. Can you?
Last night at the Margot at the Wedding premiere, Helena Christensen arrived sporting one of this season's hottest beauty trends, bold red lips. Last month she graced the black carpet at the 30 Days of Night premiere with a similar hairstyle, but with barely-there lip gloss. Which lipstick do you prefer on Helena — or should I say, which color do you think makes her amazing eyes stand out more?
I'm not so sure that I completely understand this hairstyle, but since both Kate Walsh and Heidi Klum usually look stunning, I am going to let it pass and even praise them for taking a beauty risk. Paired with their bold red lips and glamorous dresses, they stand out on the red carpet somehow seem to get away with this strange side updo. How do you feel about this hairstyle, and who do you think wore it better?
Next to being famous for her incredible voice range, Christina Aguilera has made her trademark her bold red lips. I happen to think this look is way harsh for someone her age, and am happy to see that she's changing things up with some bright and light pinks. What color lipstick do you think looks best on her?
