“Marilyn” Amigurumi

4.60

Red lipstick will always be associated with a particular woman. The charismatic, clever and fearless, whose scarlet lips signaled like a red flag that she is in charge. Everything about red lipstick is graceful and confident. For centuries, red lips have largely been seen as a stamp of immorality. In more God-fearing medieval times, it was believed that creating a plump, sexualized mouth would earn you a fast-track ticket to hell. Nowadays, some of the world’s most intelligent and charismatic women are using red lipstick for all it’s worth. Jean Harlow’s pointed red pout in the 1930s, Veronica Lake’s in the 1940s and Marilyn Monroe’s in the 1950s.
