I’m a gloss girl.  Call me “chicken” for avoiding the chic stain of merlot, but to finish off the makeup and food analogy, chicken and red wine aren’t really a perfect match anyway.

Let’s turn to the beautiful Margot Robbie for guidance…  Exhibit A, Vanity Fair Red Carpet and Exhibit B, Academy Awards Red Carpet.  Same night, same hair, same clothing color.  Striking on the right, for sure, but I think she’s radiant on the left.

What do you think?  And, more importantly, would you kiss this trend?
