Crystal Clear

This season Dries Van Noten sent nine of his models down the runway with ears encrusted with irregularly shaped pieces of crystals. Make up artist Peter Philips adhered the crystals with glue and placed each and every one by hand with tweezers, making a makeshift earcuff. The idea came from the big necklaces and larger than life brooches from the show. I want to try a smaller version myself and wonder if my favorite double sided tape will do the trick?

  11. I find these both very cool and somewhat creepy. I would prefer it more if it were slightly more delicate. It feels a littler terminator-ish to me. Definitely would turn heads though.

    I don’t know about double-sided tape, but a little spirit gum should do the trick!
