'I’m from Napa Valley. I got scouted when I was 15 and then I started doing some jobs throughout high school, and then I finished school, came to New York, and was running around here for a while. Then I wanted to take a little break—this was about eight years ago—so my mom and I decided to start making wine together in California, where I’m from. Our brand is called Lorenza—that’s my middle name. We started making rosé, but back then it was still very uncool. We were just like, ‘Whatever, we are going to make it.’ It’s fun, fresh, summertime, youth, all of the great things. It’s very food-friendly, low in alcohol, the color, everything. No negatives.”

But it's October now—time to deepen the color of your wine...and your lips. To get you over the fact that it's not warm anymore (or at least it's not warm anymore here in New York), take solace in the luxer-than-luxe Christian Louboutin lip offerings. Specifically the Silky Satin Lip Colour. It's a little lighter than the Velvet Matte version, but packs more of a colorful punch than the Sheer Voile (don't these product names make you want to redecorate your living room?). Michele is wearing Torerra. No word, however, on if she's started drinking more Merlot this season.
