Scarlet Fever

In a season that celebrates beautiful neutrals, soft colours and soft shapes, it it refreshing to see a flash of shocking colour running through. Scarlet featured in so many of the shows for AW10 in some capacity, either as a highlight of as a big feature. Here are some of my highlights. You can be Lady Danger (my beloved red Mac lipstick) in hed to toe rouge, or you can be a little more demure with scarlet highlights, to suggest an air of mischief. And it’s good news for us pasty pale Irish-skin types – Scarlet actually looks stunning on white as white skin, yipeee!!!

Simply Red are a simply average band

99 Red Baloons is a good song

Red Hot Chili Peppers are a good band
