MasterChef's Dani Talks About Wearing Lipstick in the Kitchen

Lip Service: MasterChef's Dani Talks About THAT Red Lipstick

Eliminated MasterChef contestant Dani Venn counts her lipstick as a can't-live-without item, but it caused quite the controversy in the kitchen when judge George Calombaris suggested that Dani only got serious when she took it off. Pop interviewed Dani today and got Dani's side of the story:

"It’s a funny one because I really love wearing red lipstick, and I was feeling that I was getting a bit of pressure from the judges to remove it, because I don’t think they thought chefs should wear lipstick. It’s an interesting topic: should women have to de-feminise in the kitchen? At the end of the day I was copping flack for it so I couldn’t be bothered. It was OK in the end because it’s a lot easier to maintain when you’re not wearing lipstick! [Laughs]"

Do you think Dani should've been pressured into removing it? Or should it have been her choice whether she wanted to wear makeup in the kitchen?
