Backstage at Marchesa Fall 2012Marchesa, in a word, is magical this season. We saw looks that were complicated and glorious, but nothing short of pure genius. Deborah Lippmann was put to the test, given the challenge of finding the perfect nail looks to complement various looks in the collection. The result was models that flaunted various shades because Deborah wanted to capture the genius in each and every look.
You saw Single Ladies, a bordeaux red, on the nails and toes of some models, and Fade to Black, an opaque vinyl black, also made an appearance on the “dark angel” looks. Most of the models flaunted an angelic combination of Baby Love, a baby doll pink, topped with two layers of an iridescent glitter called Stairway to Heaven.
Deborah also used Stardust, a platinum frost metallic, and Nefertiti, a modern micro fine golden shimmer. Regardless of the shade, the fingers matched the toes of each model, and the nail was short and round. Of course, each look was finished with Addicted to Speed ultra quick‐dry top coat.
