Fashion Week is the source for tons of amazing nail art and gorgeous polish ideas, and the Fall 2012 shows were idea gold. Sushi nails, ombré glitter manicures, fishnet-stocking French tips, crushed glass: this season had it all, and now you can, too. Here's the scoop on the hottest manicures from Paris, Milan, London, and New York.
The Brits are known for their out-of-the-box style, and this year at London Fashion Week, the hair was no exception. We saw everything from looks inspired by the animal kingdom to hair that was literally architectural, plus wild braids and unexpected texture galore. And if the avant-garde isn't for you, don't fret — Kate Middleton also managed to be one of the season's biggest hair influences. So check out all these styles and more exciting looks from London Fall 2012.
One of London Fashion Week's most anticipated shows, Burberry Prorsum, drew stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung to the front row — along with actress Poppy Delevigne, who snapped photos of her younger sister, Cara, as she walked the runway. Read on to find out more about Burberry's darker view of beauty for Fall 2012, along with some photographs from backstage.
If there was one word to describe McQ by Alexander McQueen's London show, it would be dramatic. Models, decked out in military-inspired ensembles, walked a darkly lit runway full of fantastical touches, including a hidden rope at the finale that led to a fairy-tale cottage. And if that wasn't enough, the hair was just as surreal, with models donning tightly pulled, bagel-shaped buns atop their heads. Will the trend catch on? Donut (sorry) count on it. But after such an impressive first showing for the diffusion line, we can hardly wait to see what the house of McQueen will offer in upcoming seasons.
One of the first shows of London Fashion Week was Maria Grachvogel. Downstairs in the Savoy Hotel, we saw all of the amazing styles and preshow beauty prep. The collection was sensational: full of color and depth that recalled the 1920s, but with a bit of art-deco androgyny mixed in among the artwork prints. Take a peek at the detailed hair and makeup from behind the scenes.
London Fashion Week has kicked off, and Felder Felder — designed by sisters Dani and Annette Felder — has created an entire collection based on the '90s era when Kate Moss was dating Johnny Depp. With added influences like the Mayan calendar and their love of the blond color palette, the look was glamorous yet cool in chic neutral tones. Take a peek at the pictures straight from London Town.
