Cara Delevingne Makes the Case for the Elegant Lip Ring
Maybe we should have seen this day coming—after all, delicate piercings (much like dimunitive tattoos) are the edgy-cool trend du jour, even in bold places like the septum of the nose. (The secret? Keep it subtle.) But we had yet to be convinced that the same ladylike aesthetic could be applied to say, the eyebrow or the lip—until Cara Delevingne completely blew our minds with her elegant evening getup last night, which included a ring around her bottom lip. Keep scrolling to see the look!
At the Chanel Exhibition Party in London, the former model showed up with a bold red lip, accentuated by her new face jewellery—adding just the right amount of gothic edge to her sophisticated look. Leave it to Delevingne to make one of the edgier trends of the '90s totally couture-appropriate. (There's one other person we can think of who does that well, and her name starts with Rih and ends in -anna.)
To get the same scarlet pout, try Chanel's Rouge Allure ($52) in Orange Red.
