I have covered husband/wife duos, sister acts, mothers and daughters... Now I am happy to profile the fall 2013 collection of newlyweds Mark Badgley and James Mischka. Before the aisle, came the runway, and it was a gorgeous one.
There were many dresses of black and gold metallic, two colors that I came to associate with Badgley Mischka over the years. They were pretty of course, but I have to say I love the blush and raspberry colors more. The bright white had an almost retro feel to it, being executed in slim, column silhouettes that looked rather Grecian. The beading and crystal embroidery was a cross between art deco and Aztec geometric patterns. The large motifs in bugle beads, the waistband, neck or shoulders in crystal.
The footwear included velvet peep toe heels with cute bows. They didn't exactly match the clothes, but they were pretty all the same. Handbags included square and oblong clutches in color block mixed with houndstooth or metallic. The hair was pulled up in vintage Hitchcock glamour with classic Hollywood beauty makeup.
Whether it's Mezo-American, Greek or Gatsby, there's a Goddess in all of us and we have every right to dress like it.
