Rose petal lips is fashion’s newest fad on Pacific coast

Real “rose petal” lips are feminists’ latest fad in Los Angeles.

Miss Margie Wilson, a pretty Los Angeles girl, is the originator of this novelty.

The petals of a red, red rose are first cut into the shape of a “Cupid’s bow.” With the aid of a lip stick the rose petal lips are applied to the real lips.

If the petals which form the upper half of the “Cupid’s bow” are applied in two parts the wearer may talk and smile without fear of losing the petals.

Miss Wilson introduced the “rose petal lips” at a recent social affair, with the result that the fad has become instantly popular with the younger set of Los Angeles.
