What Came First: Taylor Momsen’s Or Nina Ricci Models’ Smoky Red Eyes?

It felt a little like déjà vu when we read this recent Lucky magazine post about red smoky eye shadow, which was dusted on models’ lids at Nina Ricci’s spring runway show, being the hottest thing since sliced bread. We’ve seen those ruby-rimmed peepers before (and we even wrote about ’em)! Taylor Momsen went red while hosting the Tokidoki X Onitsuka Tiger Sneaker collaboration launch party on Oct. 26. Remember, this look is pegged as a Spring 2011 makeup must-try, so Taylor was 145 days ahead of the trend (in case you’re keeping count). We may never get down with the red eye—it looks…itchy—but kudos to Ms. Momsen for being on top of her makeup game.
