Amanda told me earlier today, “It is easy to write about pretty things”. This is precisely how I feel about Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York’s Badgley Mischka Fall 2011 line which strutted down the runway today. The presentation from Mark Badgley and James Mischka brought us eveningwear that has our minds thinking ahead to the Academy Awards. And clearly this is what the duo wants.

The feel was vintage and inspired by party scenes from old films like “The Women”, “Dark Victory,” and “All About Eve”. We were wooed by tiered gowns, jeweled colors, and beaded-sheaths. Celebrities in the front row, including Kelly Osbourne, Rumer Willis, Lo Bosworth and Kellie Pickler, oohed and ahhed over many of the items, no doubt planning for the future times and events to wear them.

As much as we expected and saw couture and collection pieces, outerwear and sportswear were also debuted. It was a nice way to break up the gowns and pepper the runway with tuxedo pants and a shearling bomber.
