If you are old enough to remember bright red lipstick, then you are to old to wear it, according to most beauty experts. They claim it is too aging, too period-piece, rather like the campy trivia of the '30s which are shown at left. For teen-agers like Jane Hitchcock (above), however, crimson lips and nails are a whole new discovery, either in combination with a bonnie beret for a nostalgic bow, or for a swinging accent to a thoroughly late '60s costume.
