McQueen Memorial Varnish

17 September 2010


Our tickets to Alexander McQueen’s memorial service, due to take place during LFW next week, landed on Grazia Daily’s doormat this morning. Naturellement, this has sparked a discussion among the team about the best way to pay tribute to the Brit designer at the ceremony on Monday. Well, Grazia Daily Nail may have found just the thing (and no, we won’t be putting his face on our nails à la Katy Perry, thank you).

In fact, it’s thanks to those clever people over at Butter London Beauty who have created a nail polish in honour of the designer, who died in February. We have a feeling the neutral shade with holographic sparkles, called “All Hail McQueen”, is going to become a classic, especially as it’s so evocative of his creations. And, according to HighSnobette, it was inspired by that iconic McQueen moment when a holograph of Kate Moss was projected onto the catwalk, remember?

No doubt it’ll be coming to the nails of Gaga soon, then...
