Badgley Mischka Spring 2011

Where & When: Tuesday, September 14 at 10 a.m., the Theatre, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: Minimalism may be the buzzword of the spring 2011 collections, but one place you definitely won't find it is at Badgley Mischka. Which is completely fine with me, especially when they continue to turn out such otherworldly, glamorous clothes. Spring 2011 took on a garden theme, as set by the video screen that served as a backdrop, with floral appliqu├ęs and sequined motifs in cool, icy pastels, as well as white, spring's neutral of choice. The truly innovative aspect of the show is that Badgley Mischka combined their signature and Mark + James lines all into one show, blurring the lines between couture and contemporary. After all, it's how real women dress.
Standout Look: This is a couture-line tulle top, decorated with crystals, and worn over a Mark + James tank and denim shorts, the ultimate definition of high-low, and it looked incredibly fresh.
Bonus Points: The celeb-studded front row featured Kelly Rowland, Lala Vasquez, Beth Ostrowsky, Kelly Bensimon, Gabrielle Union, and Kristen Cavallari.
