The desire for more sensual, shapely, and BIGGER lips is not new in our culture. It’s been going on for over 50 years. Though the trend hasn’t change, what has changed is the magnitude. I recently read a piece in Slate about some rather unfortunate runway appearances involving overdone lips. The article is subtitled “the rise of the trout-pout” – a graphic if not wholly accurate description of the phenomenon of overdone lips – and traces the current rise of the sensual mouth from Brigitte Bardot in the 1950′s and 1960′s to modern stars like Angelina Jolie.
