Badgley Mischka Spring 2014 at NYFW: Watch Here!
Posted Tuesday September 10, 2013 9:00 AM GMT
Have you ever wondered what it's like to mix the glamour of black-and-white seaside photography of the 20s and 30s with the imaginative essence of the modern mermaid? Badgley Mischka has the answer.
Its Spring 2014 showcase was a decadent display of everything from intricately-beaded, floor-length evening gowns in pastel hues to knee-length frocks featuring eye-catching embellishments. Additionally, sheer white blouses and flouncy pants and skirts took a turn down the runway.
To accent these majestic pieces, models accessorized with bejeweled clutches in varying shades of corals, creams and blues. As for shoes, strappy designs were further complemented by adorning sparkles.
Adding elegance was head stylist Peter Gray, who used Moroccanoil products to polish the models’ hair. Gray created smooth, soft waves with a glossy look to some, and used matte, textured hair rollers across the nape of the neck on others.
When it came to nails, Badgley Mischka enlisted the genius of Deborah Lippmann. Eager to show off her lacquered creations, Lippmann told us manicurists first prepped the nails with her Gel Lab Base Coat before adding two coats of Blue Orchid and one coat of Le Vie En Rose for shimmer. For a high-shine finish, they use the Gel Lab Top Coat. As for toes, Lippmann took the matte approach, using her Psuedo Silk Kimono polish from her upcoming collection, out in November.
To polish off the overall look, head makeup artist Tom Pecheux dived into the water theme with blue eyeshadow, winged liner a la "Badgley Misckha" glamour, and coral lips. With the eyes and lips being so dominant, Pecheux went sans blush.
From the hair to the hemlines, Badgley Mischka developed another line of red carpet-worthy looks. We can only image which A-lister will get their hands on one first.
