badgley mischka stuns with a retro revival
The Badgley Mischka runway show was every bit as glamorous and breathtaking as I expected it to be. The double-team designers never cease to capture the celebration of being a woman and how to dress to accentuate any number of features. This season, the SS12 collection showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week paid homage to our insatiable love for the Mad Men era with sweetheart cuts and high waistlines straight out of the 1960’s.
Numerous gowns in peach, daffodil yellow and a richer shade of crimson orange floated down the runways on models styled with a modernized French twist. Spring always rings true for fresh and clean faces that are already rosy with the joy of a coming summer. In keeping with the style of the 60’s, makeup artists styled the models with an exaggerated cat eye liner which angled its way along the lash line all the way up to the outer edge of a perfectly shaped brow, framing the eye wonderfully. Luminous glints of light reflected off the brow and cheek bones of the models while a soft and slightly enhanced natural lip grounded the look.
To get the look from Badgley Mischka SS12, here is what I suggest:
This look is very wearable and perfect for the office. Don’t worry, you don’t have to wait until spring to sport it either! I’ve listed my favorite products for a naturally enhanced look. What are some of your most loved beauty products you’ll use to get the look?
