What Badgley and his designer(designer toej) partner, James Mischka, are about, recession or no, is great-looking dresses with a healthy dose of straight-up glamour speaking of which, they are currently hard at work on two Oscar gowns.
A liquid-gold velvet that fell into a seductive low-necked cowl; eye-popping satins; and a slinky allover-sequin column, surely headed for a chanteuse near you. An asymmetrical frock with a sideways drape ending in a chunk of ruffles was too tricky, but overall this was a solid collection. Strongest, in fact, were looks with a modicum of austerity, like a one-shoulder, smoke-hued gown on Bruna Tenorio. With its strategic flutter of ruffles, it was easily the most elegant thing around.
