Spring 2013

Rodarte Spring 2013 Runway Show – Modern Medieval Nails

The Rodarte show has become the most anticipated show of Fashion Week. The California-based sister design-duo has soared to fame with their couture approach to the everyday uniform: layers of jacquard and brocade created structural silhouettes; amazing intricate breastplates fashioned over delicate strapless dresses; molded short skirts grounded by the chunkiest heel in a computer […]

Joy Cioci Spring 2013 Runway Show – Water Bubble Nails

It’s a lazy morning on the seaside, and you’re dazzling in a macramé lace bathing cap and matching crystal lace caftan with macramé detail. Feet buried in the sand, eyes wide open reflecting a dreamy attitude in perfect synchronicity with the steady pace of slow waves washing ashore. The melodic sounds transported everyone at the […]

Angel Sanchez Spring 2013 Runway Show – Lavender Almond Nails

Angel Sanchez, best known for his seriously gorgeous wedding gowns, also creates equally sophisticated fashion for both day and night. The looks featured clean lines in color blocks of high key primaries and delicate whites with intricate laser cut-outs on handkerchief-thin crisp cotton and silks. The dramatic shapes on top were draped and tented over […]

Karen Walker Spring 2013 Runway Show – Studio White Nails

Celestial intuition grounded by the innocence and curiosity of the 50′s smirked and giggled down Karen Walker’s runway. Tent dresses featured floating planets and lunar prints, and space battle inspired motifs were key players in this smart, if not a little geeky story of a girl torn between the past and the future. She’s a […]

Catherine Malandrino Spring 2013 Runway Show – Fresh Water Pearl Nails

‘Majestic’ was the theme of the Catherine Malandrino’s show, and majestic it was indeed!  Frosty hues of mint, sky blue, powder pink and pure white were draped in long, lean silhouettes, elongated with high-waisted pants and voluminous evening trousers, romantic day dresses with sporty and snappy confidence. Faces glowed with an iridescent sheen; eyes were deepened […]

Diego Binetti Spring 2013 Runway Show – Hidden Pearl Nails

As dusk brought a pleasant light breeze to the city, the mood inside the Diego Binetti presentation went island with mythical adventure. Those lucky enough to be inspired by the talented designer know his vision goes beyond great clothing and his true genius is in his styling. Diego mixes hand painted, screen printed, and intricately […]

Victoria Beckham Spring 2013 Runway Show – High Shine Beige Nails

At the Victoria Beckham runway show, there were stunning contrasts of black and white mixed with sharp bolts of bright orange in color blocks that naturally slim and flatter, of course! Skinny silhouettes, ultra short skirts, snappy day suits, laser-cut leather belts and peek-a-boo eyelet panels all helped to showcase impossibly well groomed limbs enhanced […]

Tara Subkoff 2013 Runway Show – Marbleized Nails

Flash back to1960, when Yoko Ono and Yayoi Kusama were bringing performance art to the fashion world. Today’s IMITATION by Tara Subkoff carries on this tradition. Viewers of the presentation were greeted by the show’s title: This is NOT a fashion show.  60 real women in flesh tone leotards and sheer cinnamon pantyhose, from age 5 […]

Christian Siriano Spring 2013 Runway Show – Grapefruit Sparkle Nails

I think we all love the show ‘Project Runway’ and the highlight to date of the series was when Christian Siriano took the prize. He continues the winning spirit with this season’s fashions. First, the front of house crew included the who’s-who-of-cool!  Young, hip and uber stylish; all there to be inspired by the Degas-ballerina, […]

Monique Lhuiller Spring 2013 Runway Show – Liquid Lavender Nails

A fantasy of water and movement shimmered from beginning to end of the Monique Lhuillier show. Mermaid hair, slicked back and cascading down the models’ backs; eyes were swiped with matte, water-blue eye shadow, accented with a dot of shimmery gold on the inside. Fingers and toes were luminescent in liquid lavender, created using ‘Lavender Longing […]
