As usual, Betsey Johnson's spring 2015 collection was raunchy, girly, loud, and — above all — fun. While all of her shows are beauteous spectacles, this one was especially great: it was a ruffly, lacy, glittery celebration of marriage equality.
The theme of Betsey Johnson's fall-winter '14 collection is "hot," and hot it most certainly was (apparently, the show started late because it had been held for a tardy Paris Hilton, 2000s-era patron saint of the phrase "that's hot).
Two days before the 2013 Miss America pageant, Miss New York Nina Dalvuluri —the self-proclaimed Miss Diversity — was allegedly caught on tape calling outgoing Miss America Mallory Hagan "fat as fuck."* Keep it classy, ladies.
Do you think one of Betsey Johnson's frazzled assistants is yelling "BE MORE QUIRKY!!!" at the models before they walk onto the runway? I bet this show is either super fun or extra tiring because you have to pretend like you're having so!! much!! fun!!!!
In January, Betsey Johnson announced that she would not be showing during Fashion Week this season and that her 2012 show had been her last.

Betsey Johnson has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Johnson's company was given a temporary reprieve from bankruptcy in 2010 by Steve Madden, the shoe maker and convicted felon, after it defaulted on a nearly $50 million loan. Madden's company paid the debt, taking as collateral all of Betsey Johnson's…
Betsey Johnson has been breast cancer free now for "Eleven years," she proudly announced at a party at her SoHo boutique this weekend. "I tell you, it's kind of no big deal anymore, it's such a huge club."
Last night at Betsey Johnson, I was stalking the runway, trying to recognize if there were any celebrities around. A tiny blonde woman appeared and disappeared suddenly beside me; it was Kristin Chenoweth. (I think.) Then, just as I saw Johnny Weir, an entourage emerged from backstage. In its center was a pouf of…
You know what you're getting with a Betsey Johnson show: color, joie de vivre and plenty of pattern. But yesterday, you got double for your money: a Valentine's show that presented both Johnson's "Black Tag" line and the new, affordable "Pink Patch." They were themed, naturally, "He Loves Me" and "He Loves Me Not."…
Does it matter if The Tourist is any good? It has Jolie and Depp! Ditto the NYC premiere, which also had Pitt, Connelly, Ashanti and some great cold-weather clothes.
You'd expect the Women's Wear Daily 100 Anniversary Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street to be studded with fashion stars, and serious fashion. And with Anna, Coco, Veronica, DVF, Mary-Kate, Ashley and many friends, you'd be right.
Meet Selina Khan. She grew up in Martinique, where she just graduated from high school, and she's been modeling since her early teens. We asked her to take us to all her castings and show us what modeling's really like.
Death, Taxes, Betsey: one thing you can depend on in this life is that Betsey Johnson will bring a rip-roaring, raucous show, do a cartwheel, and present a collection of crinolines and comforting, girlish outrageousness.
