Paris Fashion Week has come and go! Fashion week isn’t just about clothes. Everything from accessories, hair styles, make-up, and even nails can really make a statement during these shows. Minx of course was found all around Paris and at some of these amazing fashion shows!
Gorgeous Ice Queen/Crystal Cave theme for the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2011 Show. Minx co-founders Janice Jordan and Dawn Lynch-Goodwin and U.K. nail stylist Marian Newman came up with the black fading to silver with white crystals as to go with the theme of an Ice Queen looking out of a cave. In the silver faded area, you can see the white crystals the imitate the ice you would see in a wintery cave. Janice and Dawn, along with a team, applied the Icy nail fashion to 35 models for the Alexander McQueen fashion show. Photos courtesy of Becky Maynes.
These fabulous gold nails weren’t just an accent to Vivienne Westwood’s Gold Collection which debuted March 4th in Paris. U.K. nail stylist Sophy Robson came up with the idea of using gold Minx with a brushed metal top. Once again the Minx co-founders were called on to bring find the perfect mirrored-look nail fashion to go with the collection. Minx, Sophy decided, would be the best way to create the mirrored effect instead of nail polish.
Love the Minx used in the Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood fashion shows! Don’t you?

- Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 campaignThis morning I felt the need to comment on the situation of fashion as it stands right now… and the incredible places fashion is going! Many probably know by now, I am obsessed with FT; I watch it online, on the weekend… whenever I can catch it, I’m watching and I can’t help but notice how the timeline of fashion appears to be going backwards. Designers are bringing back the most evolutionary of fashion eras… I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!Speaking from my own adult fashion timeline, I can safely go back to the year 2000, I remember getting ready to go to which-ever big party was going on that night and coming upstairs to step into my shoes and walk out the door. This was never done without my Mum analyzing my ensemble and approaching me with the same reoccurring comments, aside from her asking me where the rest of my outfit is (in typical Mum fashion), she always felt the need to tell me how similar my outfit was to those she used to wear when she was”younger”. May it have been a high waisted skirt or eighties balloon pants, always paired with pointy leather heels, it relentlessly managed to bring her back.Well, looking at fashion now; where it’s been and where its quickly headed makes me think back to a place I’ve never been. The style at the beginning of my adult life was reminiscent of the 80’s and 90’s, now adays… style has evolved for us in a backward motion. The Victorian Era has seemingly been creeping up on us for some time now; lace up boots, harem trousers, corsets, long train dresses, buckles… silk, lace, linen… and we’ve embraced it from the jump. Looking at the runways for major fashion houses’ fall/winter 2010, we are seeing undeniable references; Dior, Betsey Johnson, Zac Posen, Chanel, Christian Siriano and my fav this coming year, Alexander McQueen.
Peep some previews of what I mean, leave a comment… I am in-love with what’s to come, all I can think is “Everyday could be a new costume!!!”. Fashion is elemental as it is an expression of creativity, art, history, passion, and worldliness, while still being a extremely delicate craft… Excited? Intimidated? How do u feel? xo

Heaven just got a little more fashionable.
Alexander McQueen was 40 years old when he commit suicide just several days before London Fashion Week….
Openly gay, McQueen – who once described himself as the ‘pink sheep of the family’ – left school at 16 and went to work at Savile Row’s Anderson & Sheppard, whose clients included Prince Charles and Mikhail Gorbachev, after he saw a television program about the apprentice shortage in traditional tailoring.
He went on to work for Gieves & Hawkes, theatre’s famous Angels & Bermans costumiers, and then worked in Japan and Italy.
He returned to London in 1994, hoping to work as a pattern cutter tutor at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins fashion school. Thanks to the strength of his portfolio he was persuaded to enroll in the course himself.
After graduating McQueen set up his own label based in the East End of London. With the launch of his ‘bumsters’ trousers with a waistband so low that the buttocks are revealed, McQueen made his label famous through tabloid headlines.
He went on to be named head designer at Givenchy in 1996, succeeding John Galliano, before joining forces with Gucci, who bought 51 per cent of his company.(via www.dailymail.co.uk)
Perception is reality. I’m truly bugging out from this amazing creative shoot done for OnPedder. We got Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo and Wendy Nichol.Nature inspires fashion but what inspires nature?*for the cute, clever and connect. Follow this blog!
It’s summer time! What better way to show off your new shoes and legs than to rock a tulip skirt.
Like an inverted tulip, a tulip skirt has more fabric around the waistline and a close-fitting hemline. This is a new shape that is flattering to everyone and makes you look like you have a bum :). Here are some of my favorites!Floral Tulip Skirt Charlotte Russe $22.99Farfetch.com $117.00Lucy Skirt French Connection $128Alexander McQueen $326 farfetch.comand of course… Brazen Hussy! 803 Queen St W.HeyDoYou is for the cute, clever & connected.
