We spoke about his chimney-sweep-style hair and makeup yesterday, but leave it to Gareth Pugh to do quite possibly the wildest mani of Paris Fashion Week. The designer, whose wild aesthetic is favoured by stars like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga (obviously), complemented his steely, strong collection with manicures that dripped with small chains, created by nail technician Marian Newman.
"The silhouette of the collection was angular with the occasional hint of softness, so I translated this onto many of the nails for the girls," she explained. To get the chevron effect, she painted nails with CND Ivory Coast polish before blending strokes of CND Blackjack polish. She then applied small chains — miniature versions of those seen on the clothes — to create a truly tough-girl effect. What do you think of the look? Will you be trying it at home?
