March 20th. This is the real, true-to-life date that marks the end of “spring is coming' articles—and we could not personally be more grateful (there's a quota on spring ledes before you go all Franco in Spring Breakers, which is not—and will never get—old, some writers contest). What better way to welcome the season than pink lipstick? As conventional as this sounds, here to display how unconventional it can be is Maria Borges (our Fashion Week Diarist), who just came off a drastic hair chop for Givenchy F/W 2015. Maria, pre-cut and ready for a spring rebirth (she just didn't know it yet), wears Dior Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstickin Rose Harpers 766. More punchy than precious, treat your pinks for spring to some unexpected changes in tone.
