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?
xo, June 🙂
