Hello to Badgley Mischka!

June 8, 2013

Although we’ve been carrying the line since this the winter, I would like to formally (and virtually) welcome Badgley Mischka to A.K. Rikk’s and also take a moment to tell our clients about the label.

James Mischka and Mark Badgley met at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan and launched their label Badgley Mischka in 1988, eventually launching their bridal business in 1993. “Our style harks back to the glamourous Hollywood of the Forties,” says Mischka. “The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined, and throughly elegant.” So elegant that clients ranging from presidential daughters to award-winning actors wear their designs, often at red carpet events such as the Golden Globes and the Oscars. Its their timeless designs that allow women from Madonna to an everyday bride to wear their dresses. Now we are bringing their dresses to you!

Golden Globes: A Recap

January 14, 2013

So last night’s Golden Globes were hilarious for several reasons. The first being that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted. They demonstrated that you don’t have to be over-the-top or outrageous to be funny. I just about died when the camera panned to Amy Poehler canoodling with George Clooney. The second reason is Jodie Foster’s very confusing speech and appreciation for Mel Gibson. The speech itself wasn’t funny, just how absolutely confusing it was (Did she just come out? Didn’t she come out a while ago? Wait- what? Did she just retire?). The third reason was Lena Dunham trying to to walk in (Louboutin) heels, leading me to scream “just take them off!” at the television. Glenn Close’s drunk impression was hysterical- love that woman. Lastly, some of the fashion from last night was a little “hilarious.” 

These were our staff’s least favorites:

Dear Halle Berry (in Atelier Versace), 

That dress is shifting things in all the wrong places.

Sincerely, 

A.K. Rikk’s

Jessica Chastain (Calvin Klein Collection), we love your movies, congratulations on the Golden Globe win, however, this is not working for you.

J.Lo in Zuhair Murad: This is a lil’ much, girl. A lil’ too much.

Lea Michele in Elie Saab. Girl, you are TINY. You know you are short! Why is your dress a thousand miles long?

And onto our favorites of the evening!

Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen was Anne’s favorite

Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka. This woman is always a knock out.

Michelle Dockery in Alexandre Vauthier: Andrea’s favorite. Just, wow.

Kendra’s favorite: Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera. We’re not sure if we’re digging her hair, but we love how she went out on a limb here and did something different from everyone else. There was a lot of monotony on the red carpet and we love that she stood out with something young and fun.

Sally Field in Alberta Ferretti

Blair’s favorite: Anne Hathaway in Chanel.

Allison Williams in J. Mendel: Emily’s pick. Those earrings are killer!

Ben’s favorite: Julianne Moore in Tom Ford. This woman was prepared for the cold!

Ultimately, the Golden Globes is the award show to try something fun and not take yourself THAT seriously. A lot of the younger rookies went all out with elaborate dresses with trains and the whole ten yards (we’re looking at you Taylor Swift) while the veterans (ie. Julianne Moore) showed up with beautiful dresses that were fun yet still formal enough for the Golden Globes. Save all that fancy stuff for the Oscars!
