Anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis knows that I love good embroidery. Some of the prettiest embellishments on the spring 2014 runways came from longtime design duo Badgley Mischka. Their NY Fashion Week show was a parade of ruffled chiffon and vintage crystal beading that looked at home right in the sets of Downton Abbey or the Great Gatsby. The jeweled motifs looked rich and intricate. I love the engineered placement of the beaded fringe on one particular skirt (rather than the cliche rows of flapper fringe).
Dainty hard frame clutches carried a more contemporary diamond motif along with bigger, modern carryall handbags. My favorite shoes were two-toned strappy heels. Jewelry was delicate and had an emphasis on cuffs and dangling bracelets with pearls and stones. The pale pastel manicure was the mani of choice for the models along with finger wave curls for the hair.
Which celebrity do you think would look best in one of these gowns on the red carpet?
