It's All About Red Lipstick On This Week's Best & Worst Beauty List (PHOTOS)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with all the red lipstick we've spotted on our favorite celebrities this past week.

Burberry babe Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sported matte red lipstick that matched her pantsuit, and Victoria's Secret model Lindsay Ellingson flaunted a glossy red lip shade that was as bright as her smile. Meanwhile, we learned a two-tone lip color trick from British singer Leona Lewis that we plan to wear this weekend.

See these holiday-ready red lips below (plus more notable beauty looks). Anything here you'll be copying for Christmas or New Year's Eve?

BEST: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

We've never seen red lipstick applied as perfectly as this. Huntington-Whiteley's pout makes a bold statement, so we love that she kept her hair simple and slicked back and the rest of her makeup pared down.

BEST: Victoria Justice

The "Victorious" star's straight hair, metallic silver eyeshadow and creamy nude lipstick pairs well with her sparkly blazer. We may have to copy this look for New Year's.

BEST: Leona Lewis

Between her voluminous curls, sexy sliver of black eyeliner and ombre red lips, Lewis is looking mighty fine.

BEST: Lindsay Ellingson

We can't decide what we love more: the model's cherry red lips or her shiny, blonde waves.

BEST: Gabrielle Union

In the midst of all the red lipstick, Union emerged with this absolutely gorgeous neutral makeup look comprised of bronzer, wispy false lashes and nude lip gloss. Her elegant half-up, half-down hairstyle added the finishing touch.

WORST: Kelly Osbourne

With this rockabilly hairstyle and super heavy makeup, Osbourne looks like a character from the 1990 flick "Cry-Baby." It's just too costume-y to be taken seriously.

WORST: Lady Gaga

Looks like Gaga wanted to one-up Mona Lisa and channel the iconic painting with hair and makeup taken straight from the 15th century.

WORST: Pixie Geldof

Pixie's pixie (ha!) isn't actually the problem here. She falls short of landing among this week's best beauties by layering a gray eyeshadow on top of her winged-out liner and not carefully blending on her burgundy lipstick.

WORST: Taryn Manning

Yes, the "Orange Is the New Black" actress is wearing a wig. And it's a very unflattering platinum blonde wig that washes out her complexion.

WORST: Kelly Osbourne

Osbourne lands on the worst beauty list twice this week with this purple braided topknot that she accessorized with an awkwardly-placed spike hair comb.
