Fierce Females: Cate Blanchett

Simply stunning! I was a big fan of Cate Blanchett before her recent Oscar win; I mean she’s gorgeous, Australian and looks like she’s one classy lady – what’s not to like?! But after seeing her in Blue Jasmine, (my gawd!, what a performance, if you haven’t seen it […]

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahlings! Can you believe A Red Lip And A Nude Shoe is 2?! I can’t that’s for sure! I don’t know the exact blogiversary as I started on Blogger and then came over to WordPress, but I feel like it’s about now-ish, so I’m going to raise a cocktail […]

Fierce Females: Caitlyn Jenner

Call me Caitlyn! With the unveiling of the former Olympians new female identity this week did you really think I could go past naming Caitlyn Jenner as this Sunday’s Fierce Female?! When asked by Vanity Fair what the first thing she was going to do now that Bruce […]

Fierce Females: Vivienne Westwood

The Queen of Punk! Vivienne Westwood was without a doubt the pioneer of punk culture with her shocking and daring designs that were the antithesis to the hippie movement in the early 70s. It wouldn’t surprise me if she had a birthmark in the shape of the word “FIERCE” […]
