5 Celebrities Who Wear Red Lipstick as Their Signature Makeup Look

Wearing red lipstick adds a classic element to any look while also appearing elegant and dressy – it’s that old Hollywood starlet glamour. These 5 celebrities are regularly spotted wearing red lipstick and explain why it has become a signature part of their makeup look. Some say they love how it looks, while others personally feel more attractive or even happier just to be wearing red lips!


  1. Dita Von Teese

Dita never goes anywhere without applying her signature red lips: ”I can’t live without my red lipstick, I really love bright colour on my lips. When I was a little girl I loved watching movies with my mother in Technicolor and I remember being attracted to the red lipstick on the women, because everyone wore red lipstick then. It’s classic and never goes out of style. As soon as I was old enough to wear it, I never stopped.” 

  1. Georgia May Jagger

Georgia has always admired red lips: “I think girls look fantastic with natural make-up and just a flash of red lips.” She adds that her mother Jerry Hall taught her how to apply it:  ”She taught me how to put on lipstick. She uses a brush sometimes and liner underneath to make it last longer.” 

  1. Rita Ora

Rita believes red lips completely change a look: ”Wearing red lipstick, in my opinion, is the simplest way to make an impact. As soon as I slick it on, I feel instantly pulled together, more powerful, more womanly. I wear it all, almost every day.” 

  1. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett always has a red lipstick with her: “I have Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Devil with me at all times. It helps me go from day to night in seconds, especially if I don’t have time to change.” 

  1. Taylor Swift

Taylor says red lipstick makes her feel more elegant: ”I like red lipstick because wearing it gives me this feeling of fancy things, elegant ladies and women throughout history who I’ve looked up to. My grandmother was absolutely beautiful, even in her old age. She always wore red lipstick. Maybe that’s what I like about it.”
