To Salvador Dalí, lips were one of the most painted, described, and filmed part the body. It's evident that time changes and fashion too, but lips remained a continuous inspiration for artists such as Schiaparelli and Dalí. He designed a surrealist sofa, of Mae's lips, and Schiaparelli often used lip elements, including buttons. The collaboration of the two artists designed the ruby lips brooch, which was first modeled after Mae West, and later, Marilyn Monroe. They were also inspired by the poetic cliché of ruby lips and teeth like pearls, which Dalí found fitting for his surrealist jewels.
