Our friends at Grazia magazine are rarely wrong. So when they told us that bright, bold pink lipstick was “currently the big trend in female make-up”, we believed them and told our girlfriend to try it out. Big mistake. She looked like a transsexual clown. The two conclusions we draw from this incident? 1. We really, really need to start seeing other people. 2. You have to be incredibly attractive to pull off bold pink lipstick.

Step forward Megan Fox. The 24-year-old, who was FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World 2008, illuminated her lips and took to the streets of New York while she was filming new movie Friends with Kids.

Cold, but hot: Megan struts her stuff

Never heard of it? We hadn’t either, but it also stars Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and the internet tells us it’s: “A dark period drama about a woman with one foot who seems to be going places, but is hiding a dark secret involving a horse and a piece of sweetcorn and her first born child.”

Just kidding: “It revolves around a pair of 30-something best friends who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then date other people.”

Sounds about as appealing as having your testicles massaged by a combine harvester, doesn’t it? But let’s not be too hasty to dismiss it, eh? To repeat: it stars Megan Fox. And she’s wearing bright, bold pink lipstick. We’ll see you in the queue.
