Exclusive: how stage beauty Anna Friel gets red hot every night


It’s a Hollywood classic, the tale of Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

And ensuring she maintains the publicity momentum, star of the show Anna Friel leaves the theatre each night in a dazzling display of vintage clothing that keeps the flashbulbs popping.

But while the British actress slips into a different outfit every night, one item in her retro repertoire remains resolute: the stunning red lipstick that brings her face to life and adds the finishing touch to every classic outfit.

And we’ve found out which red lippie Anna uses to achieve that old-fashioned glamour both on and off stage; it’s Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Red (No 10).

"It seems to me to be a true 1940s red and it stays on – which is vital for a performance," she says.
