NAILS

• Peter Philips, Chanel's creative director for makeup, explains how he creates his highly coveted nail polish colors: "There’s really no logic. I observe and listen to women, and then I follow my heart and my guts. It’s not a factory. I'm not a chicken that lays an egg. I just try to seduce women into discovering something they want. Because if they don’t like it, they won’t wear it." [T Magazine]
