But at the end of the day, unless the top of your resumé reads "celebrity," couture is just fun eye candy for 99% of us. Still, there is one way to get in on the A-list lifestyle: paint the designs onto your nails.
"Nail art should always just be an extension of your style and personality," says Madeline Poole, celebrity manicurist and Sally Hansen's Global Color Ambassador. "There are so many elements of a dress that make it worth recreating on nails: Color, materials, patterns, and abstract lines are a few things I look for when doing so. The gowns [from this year] are all so different from one another, but are still equally chic and on-trend."
