Victoria Beckham hosted her fourth show at London Fashion Week over the weekend, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, it was sublime.
Famed for its stripped down classic ensembles, Victoria’s show stayed true to the brand’s polished neutral aesthetics by featuring beautiful shades of cream, white, grey and black. And naturally, the beauty looks on the runway matched.
The models were given ‘no make-up’ make-up: ‘the look is pared back – a fresh, healthy complexion, paired with a golden highlight on the eyes, allowing each individual model’s characteristics to shine through,’ VB herself explained. Each look was topped off with a perfectly primed manicures, and while the clothes on show were worth a fortune, the glam was surprisingly not.
It turns out that the company behind the neat nails of VB’s models was vegan and cruelty-free polish, Peacci. The cult brand was masterminded by nail artist Daisy Kalnina and bottles are sold for just £10 – hence why the nail polishes have quickly become popular.
But VB isn’t the only designer who’s a fan. Peacci polishes, who have an incredible 130 shades available, have been spotted backstage at a number of shows during London Fashion Week including household names such as Vivienne Westwood and Shrimps, according to Red. So if it’s good enough for the high fashion set, it’s certainly good enough for us.
VB herself recently launched a new ‘power serum’ as the latest release by her beauty brand, Victoria Beckham Beauty, which was also applied before the models headed out on the catwalk.
‘We wanted to create vibrant, dewy, youthful skin that looks ultra-hydrated,’ said her go-to skin expert Melanie Grant. ‘We used the power serum first on a clean base, using two to three drops of product and gently massaging upwards – never dragging the skin down.’
