This evening found the style set taking to the red carpet of the second annual Vogue World—this year held at London’s famed Theatre Royal Drury Lane—in a showcase of some of the season’s most breathtaking trends. For model and actor Tali Lennox (and daughter of Annie Lennox), that translated to a reimagined siren eye, the TikTok trend gone rogue to match her sequined dress.
The look was all about eye elongation, liner pulled into a graphic wing at the outer corners and an extended point at the inner in an artfully seductive shape. And though the siren eye is typically executed with jet black liner, Lennox’s crimson iteration made a case for color experimentation, and even the potential for holiday wear. Perhaps she saw Selena at the VMAs and felt inspired? Though a red lip would have fit within Lennon’s visual narrative, a subtle pressing of brickish nude lip color, that matched to her blush, offered a quietly chic alternative.
Should onyx siren eyes prove a touch too noir for your taste, a strategically selected shade may be the key to embracing the sultry makeup trend.
