If there’s one thing you should always have in your makeup bag, it’s red lipstick. The beauty staple has more than stood the test of time; it’s believed that ancient Sumerians were the first to discover the power of a red lip over 5,000 years ago by crushing gemstones to wear as makeup. The ancient Egyptians were even more “creative”, crushing bugs to create the perfect rouge hue.

A classic red lip is still the ultimate go-to look for celebrities, so in anticipation of next week’s Academy Awards, Savoir Flair took a trip down memory lane to celebrate 65 years of the best red-lip looks from the event’s history. From Grace Kelly’s classic red lip to Kerry Washington’s deep-red power pout, these looks prove that red lipstick + red carpet = a beauty formula that works every time.
