Badgley Mischka Spring 2013

For their Spring 2013 collection, Badgley Mischka drew inspiration from the 1930s film "A Midsummer Night's Dream," envisioning an ethereal maiden who gets frisky in the forest, as it were. Everything oozed romance, from the colors (lilac, ivory, blush) to the fabrics (chiffon, tulle, lace). I was, admittedly, a bit distracted by the celebrities sitting front-row - more specifically, I was curious to see which looks Lauren Conrad would deem worthy of photographing with her iPhone (she seemed visibly moved by the moss matelasse dress below, not surprising considering the feminine silhouette). A number of metallic tweed blazers stood out to me for their day-to-night appeal but the real showstoppers at Badgley Mischka were the red carpet gowns, so it was exciting to see Kate Mara select the smoke lace gown (shown above) for the 2012 Emmys - and yes, she made my best-dressed list.
