Badgley Mischka Snags Christina Hendricks' Fashion Week V-Card

You know when you're in one of those moods to eat your dessert first at dinner? Well, that's pretty much what happened yesterday on the Badgley Mischka runway when the design duo began with their red carpet gowns and cocktail dresses accessorized with major bling and worked backward to younger day looks.

Actually, Mark Badgley and James Mischka just killed two birds with one stone?or one show. The first half, with voluminous dresses of cream rosettes and an ice-violet flute of a dress that will no doubt show up on some starlet soon, was their usual Badgley Mischka eveningwear line. But midway through, the lights dimmed again for a debut of the second seasons of their less expensive and slightly more casual Mark & James collection with black sheen leggings, sheer tops and party dresses paired with thigh-high boots.

Real Housewives of New York Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon were watching from the front row, but they're kind of everywhere so the press focused on the girl who's most likely to actually sport the red carpet gowns on a red carpet: Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. The Fug Girls overheard her say that it was her first fashion show. If she keeps up her classiness that perfect figure, then this definitely won't be her last. It also probably helps that she's on the current fashion cover of New York Magazine.
