Essie launches Leading Lady for Winter / Holiday 2012.
Guts. Glory. Glamour. The modern woman is totally driven, desiring the best of everything. Not content to simply spend money, this princess wants to bake her cake and buy them, too. Why be the arm candy when you can be the main attraction? Her majesty has set her sights on the ladder and she intends to climb her manicured way to the very top. Her savoir-faire and positively imperial taste serve her well, and she knows how to use it. When she makes an entrance she commands attention and pulls no punches with singular, strident and striking color.
I just love the elegant simplicity of a saturated, monochromatic look. It’s so luxe and yet, so easy to put together, says Essie Weingarten, Founder and Global Creative Director of Essie. “It’s one part Queen Elizabeth, two parts Duchess of Cambridge. They don’t mince words and never mince color. They always go straight for the jugular.” Their influence, like their authority, is undeniable.
There’s no arguing with regal color, it’s just divinely right. Noble blues, royal reds and high-carat sparkling multi-dimensional glitters reign supreme. Move over overstuffed tycoon, here comes a new breed of leading lady – and she’s here to stay. It’s easy to tell by her natural grace that she’s pampered. Want to make an impression? Go ahead, gild the lily with a decadent gift and get beyond cozy. What would make her absolutely snap happy? A butler please. Take heed, because she just may inspire a little self indulgence in you too: you’ll soon be asking, where’s my chauffeur?
