Helmut Newton Gets Another Tribute Lipstick, This Time By Poppy King
July 19, 2012
If you consider the fact that Helmut Newton dedicated his decades-long career to capturing beauty and glamour on film, it shouldn’t come as a much of a surprise that the late photographer had a sexy red lipstick dedicated to him. (The ruby red ‘Funky Ruby’ by TERRY was actually sold in the gift shop of his latest exhibit in Paris.) What is worth noting is that there are not 1 but 2 Helmut red lipsticks on the market now. Poppy King teamed up with House of Exposure on a limited edition Helmut Red lipstick ($25), also a dedication to the man whose subjects included glamazons Linda Evangelista, Catherine Deneuve, and Jerry Hall, and whose work appeared in Vogue countless times. As the product description read, Newton’s photos were “sexiness on a page,” and his tribute red lipstick is “sexiness in a tube.” How appropriate.
Get it: Helmut Red Lipstick ($25).
