Badgley Mischka unveiled a decadent, wearable collection fit for an uptown princess, or Hollywood ingénue. A perfect balance of day and evening, there was something for everyone to covet.
Day pieces were varied; wide legged trousers, knit turtlenecks, tweed suits and expertly cut mini dresses. I didn't really mind the neutral palette of rich tans, browns and greys because everything looked so freakin' luxurious. A favorite look was a cropped fur jacket with elbow length sleeves paired with slim pants.
Evening was stunning, as to be expected. Floor grazing gowns swept the runway and I won't be surprised if we see one at the Oscars later this month. I questioned the heavy duty metallic silver one though; it was too blinding to admire the craftsmanship. Most of the gowns' necks were adorned with signature precision beading and nuanced graphic beaded patterns. The flowing plum gown was delectable - it made my day.
