A Model’s NYFW Diary: Yigal Azrouël

When it comes to high fashion, model Alana Zimmer is one of the biggest names in the industry. Some of her latest accomplishments: starring in the current Akris and Givenchy Beauty ad campaigns and walking in the Armani Privé and Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture shows last month in Paris. Currently the Canadian beauty is in the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week and doing her second backstage photo diary for us. Check back each day for more of her supercool pics from a model’s perspective!

butter LONDON for Yigal Azrouel’s Cut25 

butter LONDON’s Founding Creative Director, Nonie Creme, is one of our favorites to watch every Fashion Week. At yesterday’s Yigal Azrouel’s Cut 25 presentation, she debuted what she’s calling an ombre nail, but we think looks more like ikat. Here’s what Creme had to say about the look:

We created bespoke mixes for the look at Yigal Azrouel’s Cut25 - Salmon Pink, 80’s Turquoise, and Pastel Pistachio. This is a butter London moment of greatness!  Introducing the “ombré” manicure - softly layered, fabric woven-like nails that perfectly accent the woven jewelry here, the ultimate accessory. This is about visual texture; a loose, artistic nail art- I’m all about “fine art for nails” no palm trees or sunsets please!”
