Anyone who tells you fashion shows are all about the clothes is simply not paying close enough attention. Of course, the ensembles going down the runway — not to mention the outfits worn by front-row celebs — are the center of attention, but to ignore the beauty moments on the models and attendees is to miss out on so much aesthetic inspiration. And if you’re willing to really zero in on the tiny details, you get a glimpse of greatness like Anne Hathaway‘s manicure at the Versace runway show.
Although Versace usually has its runway shows during Milan Fashion Week, Donatella Versace took the opportunity to present her Fall/Winter 2023 collection in West Hollywood on March 9, with pre-Oscar buzz in the air. We already raved about the incredible makeup look created by Pat McGrath for the plethora of supermodels in the show, and now nail artist Tom Bachik has shared the manicure he did for Anne Hathaway, who mingled with other celebrity guests like Lil Nas X, Cher, Dua Lipa, and Demi Moore.
“It honestly was a moment of discovery,” Bachik tells Allure. “The idea was to add some length and create a modern French manicure. I test-applied a clear, full-coverage tip over her iridescent nails to see if we could get away with not taking the time to soak them off. Not only did the tips fit well, they looked amazing!” Those crystal-clear tips: Aprés Nail Gel-X Natural Stiletto Medium nails.
