Orange Vermillion Lips

'The colour was too bright, the makeup too garish, the smile a little too forced, the façade was beginning to crack.'

So said Molly Haskell of 1950s Hollywood films, the decade in which Natalie Wood came of age as a star. In 1954 at age 16, after a successful career as a child actress, Wood signed a seven-year contract with Warner Brothers and made a series of films that, according to screenwriter (and Wood biographer) Gavin Lambert, were characterised by 'slathered makeup' and 'orange vermillion lipstick'.
