This season, go minimalist chic and get inspired by the latest runway nail trend - the negative space manicure. Just paint your nails in your favourite hue, while doing so, leave out an area unpainted to give the illusion of the nail enamel floating against a bare nail bed. Here's our pick of negative space manicures from the recently concluded New York Fashion Week. (Text: Arpita Kala)
Get inspired by the look from designer Marissa Webb's show by leaving out a thin line sans colour on your nails to ace this season's hottest trend.
Winter may be round the corner but instead of covering up, our stars are going all sheer! Deepika Padukone did a Dita Von Teese in a red disintegrating lace gown, glamming up her look with red lips and coiffed hair at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2012 in Mumbai on Sunday. The see-through Gaurav Gupta gown stylishly showed off her well toned cleavage and thighs.Actor Alia Bhatt, too, went the sheer way sporting see-through palazzo pants teamed up with a mustard top at a promotion of her upcoming film Student of the Year in Mumbai last week. The trend is already hot on the international runway and divas such as socialite Kim Kardashian and singers Katy Perry and Lady Gaga too have been endorsing the trend. Design gurus vouch for sheer as a must-have this season. “Sheer was a rage in the nineties. Fully sheer lace gowns are a favourite of celebs on the red carpet internationally. Sheer bottoms are also in. It’s a super sexy way to show off your skin,” says designer Rina Dhaka. “It’s a modern day girl’s pick. It’s much cleverer than showing just bare skin,” says designer Gaurav Gupta. He recommends lace, chiffon, georgette and thin tulle fabric for those who want to go sheer. One can wear sheer in various trendy ways such as a sexy bra with a sheer top, sheer pants, lacy crop tops and full lace dresses.
