When Alexander McQueen committed suicide this February, the fashion world stopped in its tracks. Makeshift memorials were set up outside his boutiques, magazines stopped their presses to make room for tribute essays, and candlelight vigils were organized, flash-mob style, on Facebook and Twitter.
Now Butter London has a more unusual tribute - a nail color devoted to McQueen and his uniquely madcap aesthetic. Called "All Hail McQueen," the shade is a ghostly gray infused with rough pinches of shimmer. It's a holographic nod to his last collection (a meditation on angels and birds) and also to one of his most famous runway stunts: Putting a holograph of Kate Moss directly on his catwalk.
