Fashion Week Recap: Betsey Johnson's Show

Betsey Johnson's Spring 2008 show, held in the Tents at Bryant Park (on September 11th) was my absolute favorite of ALL the collections I saw the entire week.  Hello, the theme was PROM, for chrissake!!!  It's almost impossible for me to describe without using egregious exclamation marks and lots of incredulous, positive expletives, so let's just put it this way: I squealed throughout the entire thing.  SQUEALED.  Which totally humiliated my friend and fashion week companion, the designer Mary Rambin.  She appreciated the theatrics, but not so much the crinoline.  As for me, petticoats and giant bows with poofs and flounces worn at a giant pink sparkle covered dance is my idea - literally - of heaven.  Check out Betsey's collection below:

Thanks to the extraordinary talents of the ever capable, always patient Eric Lodwick for making all of my Star Magazine Fashion Week videos possible.

Dear God, I love the prom.  I would go to prom every year for the rest of my life, if I could.  Twice a year, even.
