Spring 2009 Fashion Week Nails

The Unsung Heroes of Fashion Week

Nail technicians, despite their increasing Fashion Week importance due to the increased interest in bags and shoes, are usually relegated to performing their jobs while the models get their hair and makeup done. But changing polish eight times a day can be a nightmare for both models and pros. Exhibit A: On the left is a photo of model Coco Rocha showing me her manicure from the Thakoon show. Problem is, we were at Matthew Williamson. Today's New York Times has an interesting story where the writer, Natasha Singer, goes undercover with Creative Nail Design as a nail technician during New York Fashion Week. Give it a read, but be prepared to witness possibly the most unglamorous aspects of Fashion Week!

Why are models so dirty and gross? How can you be that lazy when you only have to do it once in a while and the rest of the time someone else is doing it for you. Wouldn't it get you more work if you were clean and put together and perhaps, less of a bitch?
