Badgley Mischka began its Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear runway show with a delicate mixture of gold and bronze, in the form of a stunning sequin gown.

This muted metallic aesthetic found its way into most of the pieces in the collection-whether it be in the form of fabric or embroidery. Coupled with heavy, straight lines, Mark Badgley and James Mischka's use of gold this year seems to take its cue from the art deco movement. The same can be said for the dressing of the models. With their dark lipstick, smoky eyes and teased hair, the models seem like shadows of Clara Bow, Hollywood's one-time "It" girl and the silver screen queen of the 1920s. It's hauntingly beautiful to say the least.

One piece that particularly stood out was a black, boatneck evening gown that featured intricate gold embroidery on both hips, as well as a gorgeous, plunging back.

The metallic jackets were particularly eye catching as well because they add an elegant, evening flair to a type of clothing that women typically choose to wear during the day. Hopefully some of the starlets will don these jackets on the red carpet in the upcoming months.
