Red Carpet Ready Looks Came Down The Runway At Badgley Mischka & Herve Leger!

From the sexy new take on the bandage dress at Herve Leger to soft feminine looks at Badgley Mischka, I thought the runways were filled with frocks that would be perfect for premieres and parties!

While the week is winding down, day six of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was much like the day before — the majority of the shows I attended were full of looks I’m sure we’ll see on the red carpet! At Herve Leger by Max Azria we saw a new twist to the signature bandage dress. I must say, it’s a nice surprise — there’s only so much variety I expect to see with the Herve Leger line, but this season it was definitely different!

Hemlines were longer, and I really can’t wait to see the structured bandage mini that flares out after the waist. There were ruffles and soft shades that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see in the line, yet they definitely were welcomed additions. The designer also brought back the weaving technique that seemed to work so well on the runway last season. There were also edgy elements in the collection, like the cutouts and choice of fabric used for some of the pieces. Jessica Szohr was in attendance, and she looked amazing in a black Herve Leger with a messy, full ponytail.

The vibe was definitely different at Badgley Mischka, where a slew of celebs stepped out for the show. While there were feminine casual looks in a soft palette, the design duo sent their signature Old Hollywood formal wear down the runway as well. There was a pale blue mini that was very wearable, yet my favorite was a pale pink mini that gathered at the waist. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw the strapless white gown with embellished bodice at an awards show as well!

Overall, both collections are known for their signature style, but I appreciate how they expanded upon it while still staying true to their design aesthetic. What did you think of the looks on the runway?
