China Glaze Woos Wong

Designer Sue Wong’s Fall 2011 show featured Edwardian-era lace, detailed embroidery, dainty appliqués—and China Glaze reds for nails.

The show, which took place at Wong’s private residence in Los Angeles, was inspired by the 1964 musical My Fair Lady, an opulent adaptation of the 1912 George Bernard Shaw play, Pygmalion.

The nails were a nod to the film version’s glamour, with rich polishes—such as the dark brick Drastic and the rich and creamy Rouge—gracing models’ loverly fingertips.
