~ fall 2012 nail trends ~

2 Sep

Armani: Proof that certain classics never go out of style: Designers like Armani showed a deep berry shade that will always work for fall.

Kate Spade: At Kate Spade, nail art took a walk on the retro side, whose models showed off simply sweet polka dots.

Tracy Reese: Chrome veered from its traditional gold or silver and into peacock blue at Tracy Reese.

Dior: The pale, ladylike lavender that showed up at Dior could work for afternoon tea or the office.

Zac Posen: The models at Zac Posen had high-shine red tips that felt more lacquered than ever.

Alice + Olivia: Black’s never felt less goth than at Alice + Olivia, where charcoal got playful with flecks of gold.

Valentino: Simple, sophisticated nails have graduated from beige to ballet slipper and, now, the lavender taupe spotted at Valentino.

Ruffian: The shape at Ruffian was an oblong oval, faked by the magic of a press-on nail. Color-wise, a candy-hued purple brightened things up.

Louise Gray: Louise Gray showed classic basic black-and-white, turning the old-school French into something more deliberately sever.

Jean Paul Gaultier: The shiny silver at Jean Paul Gaultier proved to be a neutral-but-not that’s surprisingly subtle.

Next season’s hottest hair and makeup trends—straight from the runway

Trend: ’60s-Inspired Cat-Eyes

Pumped-up fringe and a generous coating of black eyeliner made peepers pop at shows like Louis Vuitton (shown here), Jonathan Saunders, and Dolce & Gabbana.

Dolce & Gabbana

Trend: Statement Hair Color

Vibrantly hued powder transformed manes atThakoon (shown here) and Narciso Rodriguez, while bold streaks at Mulberry came courtesy of extensions.

Trend: Red Lipstick

Christian Dior’s orange-red pucker (shown here) is a spring standby. But, as designers Donna Karan and Anthony Vaccarello demonstrated, brownish and purplish reds are fair game too.

Donna Karan

Trend: Bangs

Faux blunt-bangs stole the spotlight at Hermès (shown here) and John Galliano; at Miu Miu, models’ own strands were molded and pinned over the forehead for a similar appearance.

John Galliano

Trend: Artsy Appliques

From Fendi’s gold leaf (shown here) and Givenchy’s sequins to Chanel’s pearls and Viktor & Rolf’s paper, all sorts of materials were adhered to the face for spring. Manish Arora, Mugler, and Gareth Pugh round out the creative bunch; plastic, glitter, and Minx nails served as their mediums.

Trend: Bobs

Warmer weather calls for shorter hair—or at least a fake version of it. While wigs were utilized atEmporio Armani (shown here), tresses were tucked and pinned at Rag & Bone, Jil Sander, and Mark Fast.

Rag & Bone

Trend: Dramatic Navy Eyes

Creamy midnight-blue enhanced traditional black liner at Rodarte (shown here), Emanuel Ungaro, and Just Cavalli.

Trend: Retro Hairdos

The ’40s and ’50s were reference points for glamorous rolls and pinned-back waves; these styles were seen at Jean Paul Gaultier (pictured here), Prada, Sonia Rykiel, and Zac Posen.

Trend: Silvery Eyes

Etro’s brow-high dusting (shown here), Gianfranco Ferré’s circular shape, and Phillip Lim’s defined creases are proof that—no matter how you wear it—silver eye shadow is still trendy for spring.

3.1 Phillip Lim

Trend: Slick Strands

Whether dripping wet (Alexander Wang), damp (Alberta Ferretti), or half-dry (Giambattista Valli), slippery hair was popular on the spring catwalks. Translation: No blowout? No worries!

Giambattista Valli

Trend: Strong Brows

Bold arches are in right now—and they’ll carry over into spring, too: Altuzarra(shown here), Moschino, and Derek Lam are just a handful of shows that embraced the eye-framing look.

Trend: Voluminous Locks

Hair was a shiny curtain of va-va-voom proportions atIssa (shown here), DKNY, and Versace.

Versace

Trend: Sun-Kissed Skin

While all-over bronzer is never a good idea, Michael Kors (shown here), Vera Wang, and Max Mara reminded us that well-placed color is golden.

Every year they pop up on a runway or two, but it’s only now though that prim designers, are incorporating the look into their collections, lending some risqué drama to an otherwise politely polished season.
