NEW YORK (AP) — Badgley Mischka celebrated its 25th year with a New York Fashion Week show that featured their signature sumptuous gowns and a queen of glamour — Naomi Campbell.

The supermodel joined Mark Badgley and James Mischka briefly on the runway Tuesday, amid cascading silver balloons, as the duo celebrated their silver anniversary together. The brand is known for delicate, dazzling dresses, and delivered that once again for its spring collection.

It would be easy to imagine which A-list celebrity might wear which gown; most of the designs were not made for mere mortals. There was a smoky silver number that seemed to be a mix of a glittery bodice, underpants and yards and yards of see-through lace; a strapless, beaded top with ruffles at the bottom, paired with a long, matching skirt, and a sleeveless gown with a long train.

Ruffles were a recurring theme, including a beige jacket with two layers off it, and they also appeared on other looks. And even the more sedate looks were stunners, including a silvery sleek beaded dress with beaded belt to match.
