The bold lip is a perennial beauty trend - come autumn, few can resist a deep plum or berry shade to team with winter knits, whilst in the summer, a pop of bright lipstick looks great with a golden tan. Despite the focus on brows and lashes this autumn/winter 2011, statement lips still took centre stage on the catwalks at Gucci, Kenzo and Diane Von Furstenburg. But how to work bold lipstick off the runway? Look to the red carpet for inspiration, where stars have been wearing bold lips in a rainbow of hues.
