Title

Elizabeth Arden Cosmetic Ad

Description

A bright and noticeable colour such as red would draw anyone’s attention to those who wore it, especially on their lips. Red lipstick became very popular in the 1920s with the Suffragettes, who wore it to convey a newfound sense of power and voice. Soon after, it was adopted by Hollywood starlets, who wore the bright colour as a symbol of beauty and sex appeal. (Elizabeth Arden advertisement, 1948)
