Badgley Mischka is an American fashion label designed by Mark Badgley and James Mischka. This brilliant duo make the perfect pair as they are partners in business and love. Together, they create some amazing fashions-my personal faves being the elegant evening gowns. They also design bridal gowns, fragrances, handbags, shoes and eyewear. The lucky spokesmodels for Badgley Mischka have been Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Sharon Stone and Teri Hatcher. I’m sharing some of my favourite bridal gowns, ads and celebs sporting these gorgeous duds for this girl moments segment.
Badgley Mischka wedding dresses are so ethereal and feminine in their design. The fabrics used to make the gowns gives a soft flowing appearance. I could see myself gliding down the aisle in any of these gowns; unfortunately it’s the cookie aisle in Safeway because my fella is seriously dragging his feet in that department… do I sound hostile?
Who could forget Charlotte’s second (and much more successful) wedding to Harry in Sex and the City? And the wedding dress she wore? You guessed it, Badgley Mischka. I think Anthony said it best when Charlotte first debuted the gown: "You look like Audrey Hepburn...owitz!"
Badlgey Mischka bridal appeared again in Sex and the City but this time on Carrie. She wore this gown to a ball in the episode where her and Aiden (*pause and sigh for Aiden*) had a tiff over her wearing her engagement ring as a necklace. I believe that was the end of the couple’s relationship. But hey, she looked fabulous in this wedding dress….even though her not wanting to don a wedding gown and say, "I do" was the exact problem they had. I wonder if they did that on purpose for irony’s sake? Anyhoo, here’s a better look at the gown she wore:
Now for the celeb’s who share my love of all that is Badgley Mischka:
Helen Mirren and Queen Latifah
These are some of the ads Teri Hatcher and the Olsen twins did for the designers (see Sharon Stone’s at the top of this post):
I’m not a big Olsen twins fan but these ads are pretty snazzy. I lurrrrve the blue gown on Mary-Kate! (Sadly, I can immediately tell them apart because I was a HUGE fan when I was a little girl and spent many precious hours reading their books and watching the corny movies they put out. I guess they were the Hannah Montana of my day.)
So what do you think of Badgley Mischka? Are they your favourite designers or does someone else have your heart strings zinging even more?
