For the very first time Alexander Wang did not include even one piece of black in his Spring Summer 2011 Collection. There’s always been this edgy “dark touch” which defined a part of the designer’s DNA. “This season everything changes” said Alexander as he explained that he was seeking a certain level of purity, in an optimistic way. This purity is felt in the hair and makeup as well as in the nails. For many seasons Nonie Creme, butter LONDON founder & artistic director, created a very matte, custom color, but this season while keeping the ‘Matte A. Wang” signature, she stripped the nails of any color.

“This season the nails are matte, short, clean, crisp. This is a modern contemporary finger nail, frosted glazed, slightly hazy. I love the fact that this look can be easily recreated at home” said the always enthousiastic Nonie Creme backstage. “It’s like nail lingerie” a reporter pointed out.

It’s may be nail lingerie but it’s environementelly friendly. butter LONDON’s has redefined the nail care industry by offering colorful, not carcinogenic. No Formaldehydes, no Toluenes, and no DBP nail polish are defined by the number three in every bottle.

Get this nail style: Nonie Creme & manicurists first used the butter LONDON Melt Away Cuticle Eliminator then applied one coat of butter LONDON Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat followed by two coats of the butter LONDON Matte Finish Topcoat. All butter LONDON nail polish can be purchased via butterlondon.com, beauty.com and Nordstrom.com.

Get this makeup style: Diane Kendal simply refreshed model faces with M·A·C cleansing wipes, and applied M·A·C Studio Moisture Fix Lotion for a healthy and hydrated glow. M·A·C Moisture Lush Cream was applied to the body for a similar effect. M·A·C concealer and M·A·C powder blotted out eyebrows. All products by MAC Cosmetics via Nordstrom.

Kayne West – Fashion icon or just a “Poser” in Chic Clothing

While we all know that Kayne West is a multi talented star, few realize his penchant for fashion. For those not in the know, take a look at any number of runway shows from the Paris, Milan, and London Fashion weeks, and you’ll most likely see Mr. West at more than several of them.

Kayne not only brings a sense of the hip hop world to the catwalk, with his pinosh style and over the top exhiberant personality as a formidable performer, he also brings with it his ego. Yes, his ego. In fact, his is so large, he should have a runway seat reserved for it: right in between him and Anna Wintour.

Granted, he has good reason to be ego-centric. He sells more albums than Wendy Williams dishes gossip. Nevertheless, there comes a point when one asks: is it for real or is it for show?

Fashion icon or not, I am starting to believe that the world that Kayne seeks to join is not of fashion. No it’s of “Kayne” and just Kayne. And Kayne now wants you to be like “Kayne”.

Because of course, as if his launching his own line of shoes chez Louis Vuitton wasn’t enough now he wants you to become him. Don’t believe me? See his latest NYC subway ad and decide for yourself.
