Shoulders came into focus at the Badgley Mischka Spring 2020 New York Fashion Week Show.  Big shoulders, puffy shoulders, frilly shoulders, decorated shoulders, all gorgeous.  With a kind of tropical feel  inspired by the American Glam elegance when Hollywood movie stars played in the Caribbean,  in the ’30s and ’40s. The hair by Felix Fischer was classic, the lips by Mary Irwin were a cool red with a satin finish, finger patted on.   For more from this show, CLICK HERE

 Tropical Fashions @ Badgley Mischka – 2020

The florals, the flowers, the leaves with graphic poppies and palm shades, all looked refreshingly stylish at the Badgley Mischka Spring 2020 New York Fashion Week Show at Spring Studios.. They gave a tropical feel to the ruffled swimsuits, the shoes, the bags and the hand made in Italy fabrics on some divine dresses. The inspiration was American Glam, elegance in the ’30s and ’40s, which took place as movie stars like Hollywood ‘s Claudette Colbert took vacations in the Barbados. Call it Caribbean chic.

Gorgeous makeup and hair from the Badgley Mischa New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Show held at Spring Studios. This was a beautiful, romantic Badgley Mischka 30th Anniversary Show with breathtaking jewelry and fashions. The hair theme was Alice’s Wonderland (stay tuned) but we also love this stunning Fro Chic look. The makeup, by Carly Giglio for Stila Cosmetics, focused on the eyes, which shimmered and glowed with “Suede” and”Velour plus “Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow” topped with “Mythical” in the center of the eye to add a pop of illumination.

Double French Twist Hair @ NYFW – 2018

Double French Twist Hair @ NYFW - 2018

Photos: Helen Oppenheim

The hair at the Badgley Mischka Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week Show was a modern take on the classic French twist – “a small simple shape achieved with a double twist,” said Peter Gray who created the hair using NuMe.  “Twist one way, then the other,” advised the hairdresser, who said he didn’t use many pins, about 6 to 8 and that he sprayed onto the brush, not straight into the hair.  The fashions were inspired by Caravaggio, the Italian painter (1571-1610) – he had an influence  on Baroque paintings, which can be seen in the fashion details.  For more on this show, CLICK HERE
