I rolled out of the figurative gutter of the literal FashionIndie office this morning and dragged my hungover self to Badgley Mischka. Though I didn’t have my coffee/Jack Daniels, the collection was definitely the best part of waking up. There were red carpet gowns galore that we’ll no doubt be seeing in the coming months. But there were a few missteps — I’m the last girl on earth to decry a hotpant, but when said hotpant interrupts an otherwise stunning procession of dresses, I can’t fully support it. Though I’d probably end up wearing it. Okay, totally end up wearing it.

Statement Pieces: I openly gasped at a rose brocade gown, seen above, though the color may be a little more Candyland than couture
Front Row: Audrina Partridge who’s from some TV show I refuse to even pretend to care about and singer/homewrecker Leann Rimes
Runway Music: “Add Ends” – When Saints Go Machine; “Thanks for Nothing” – Danton Eeprom
