The February issue of Oprah Magazine (thanks mom!) includes a snarky little vignette expounding upon the gothic aesthetic. There are updates on the latest dark cosmetics and brief quotes from Valerie Steele, curator of the excellent Gothic: Dark Glamour exhibit from the Museum at FIT. (See my post on it here). Apparently, Lancome, of all brands, is launching a new black lip gloss color in Spring. It's quite timely, according to Steele, because "This has been a very gothic moment for fashion." Black is the new black, apparently - so dress accordingly.
