NEW YORK (AP) - While there was a bit of a spy vibe on the Badgley Mischka catwalk at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, there was no mystery about the clothes: straight-up glamour.
The Badgley muse is the type who replaces her trench with an anthracite shearling coat or a cropped ebony-colored shearling and wool bomber.
Against a beamed backdrop of a fog-filled cityscape at the Lincoln Center tents models wore gowns with beaded shoulders and in crushed velvet.
There also were gala gowns, including a magenta one-shoulder, all-over beaded one. Oscar gowns, a strapless black taffeta and tulle version with a black bow, and another in amethyst would give the flashbulbs a workout.

There were gowns to command an entrance - the champagne-colored, one-shouldered chiffon with a three-tier asymmetrical hemline.
In recent seasons, Mark Badgley and James Mischka threw in some daytime looks with mixed results. For fall, though, it's back to the core of the label that considers a black ripple-effect bodysuit paired with a black clipped-satin skirt one of the dressed-down looks.
Rumer Willis, the new star of Badgley's ad campaign, and Kelly Osborne sat in the front row, surely shopping for red-carpet outfits. Some of the more youthful looks that would suit their age and funkier style were a lace-knit pullover atop a sequin-and-tulle dress, or a twin set paired with a stretch tuxedo pant.
