"An 18th century portrait of a lady in a child's interpretation" was how makeup artist described the look at Vivienne Westwood. In direct contrast to the nude and simple looks seen on most of the runways during Paris Fashion Week, the models in Vivienne Westwood's show had eyebrows painted gold, lashings of color splashes across their eyes and cheeks, and burgundy colored lips tipped with gold. They looked like cherubs that had been gussied up by playful children.
MINX nails helped to keep that theme with nails that gave the impression of a child who has been playing at decorating her nails and is not very good at it. Standard Minx designs of Flowers, Turquoise Chrome, Japanese Blossom, Oil Slick, Shell, and Black were applied on the fingers a little askew. Nail artists then applied extra glitter, paint, and blobs of glue to the models' fingers in wild abandon, so each looked a little different. For toes it was a Pewter Gradient Minx, a metallic sheen that shimmered on the runway.
