Anne Hathaway, the Devil and The Ultimate Red Lipstick

Posted on June 20, 2006

Anne Hathaway really rocks those red lips in The Devil Wears Prada a film that -- naturally -- we simply cannot wait to see. In the meantime, Sephora has helpfully interviewed the makeup artist on the film who revealed how she morphed Anne's character Andrea from a mousy new employee at a fashion magazine into a chic New Yorker worthy of attending a Paris couture fashion show.

Makeup artist Nicki Lederman told Sephora, "Andrea is this smart, natural-looking girl who just graduated college. She slowly learns a whole different world that she never thought she could be part of. In the Paris scenes, her look becomes very sophisticated, with hard eyeliner and red lips. Throughout the whole movie I avoided red lips because I wanted to save something special for the end."

Benefit Benetint was applied on Anne's lips. Lederman dotted Dior Addict Lipstick in Positive Red 857 only in the center of Anne's lips. She then blended it in with well with her fingers to create a matte, stained effect.

We love Dior Addict lipsticks -- they wear forever. But heaven help you if you a) don't use a good lipstick liner like Chanel liner in Nude or b) fail to use a lipstick brush to delicately paint on that bright color without coloring outside the lines. This business of dotting in the center of the lip, blending with fingers etc. is best left to the professionals who don't mind lipstick-smeared fingers. The smart girl uses the lipstick brush at the other end of her Chanel lip pencil.

This clip from the film from Fandango Movieclips shows Anne's red lips perfectly.

We like the poster for the upcoming film as well. It features a red heel with a pitchfork.
