Grab all those the nail wraps you bought up when the trend started and throw ’em out the window—there’s a new queen in town. Enter: Marchesa for Revlon 3D Jewel Appliqués.
We caught up with the design duo behind Marchesa at a glamourous party held in their honor at NYC’s famed Plaza Hotel. Here’s what Project Runway: All Stars judge Georgina Chapman and her design partner Keren Craig had to say about the collection:
OK!: How did you get involved with Revlon?
Georgina Chapman: Well we were approached by Revlon and we just thought it was such a natural partner for us. They believe in empowering women through beauty, and I think that’s what we like to think we do at Marchesa too.
Keren Craig: Yeah, we wanted to do something glamourous and we wanted to translate some of the ideas of the beading from the dresses and the intricacies of the dresses to the nails.
OK!: It’s a little different that doing a regular old nail collection. Why did you decide to create the appliqués instead of just polish?
GC: Well I think as Keren said, it seemed a very obvious way to get our embroideries and our aesthetic into the beauty world. It doesn’t really translate into specific colors.
OK! Do you think we’ll see it on the red carpets coming up?
GC & KC (in unison): “HOPE SO!”
GC: Oh my goodness, do you know what? It was such a great season. It really was. Really, really talented designers. So I think everyone is going to be excited to see it and you know, there are few surprises and really great guest judges.
OK!: Well we are really looking forward to it! Thanks for chatting with us.
GC: Thank you!
KC: Thanks so much!
So there you have it! Super chic nails from some seriously empowered women.
