Last week I got an invite to see the Betsey Johnson Spring 2012 show and couldn’t wait to see what BJ had in store for all of us who adore her clothes! Betsey Johnson’s show was being held at the beautiful Lincoln center in NYC and women from all over the world (including me) attended the show in pure Betsey fashion. I was happy to find out that my good friend Suzanne and her cute little “punk glam princess” were attending the show as well so we met up out front and enjoyed the show together. The show was exactly how I imagined it to be and what everyone expected it to be. It was brilliant, fun, authentic, outrageous, rock and roll, and scantilly clad..the exact essence of Betsey Johnson throughout her years of designing. Some big timers attended the show like rapper Nikki Minaj, Lynn Yaeger of the Village Voice, fashion photographer Nigel Barker, and more. Betsey has captured the hearts of fashionistas all over the world and continues her legacy as one of our favorite designers of all time. I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend her shows and have a bond with her and her company. Betsey Johnson has been wonderful and a huge contribution to my style and my life and I don’t know anyone more inspirational. I can’t wait to get my hands on her Spring collection! Check out photos and more details of the show inside!
The beautiful Lincoln Center. I just wish this woman wasn’t in the pic lolololLove the Lincoln center fountain. So beautiful at dusk. I went dressed very elegantly, inspired by the Victorian era in black, red, and creme tones. I gave my hair a messy soft waved look and put it in a messy bun covered by flowers in the back. It was beautiful but dark, two of my favorite combinations in an outfit. My dress is Betsey Johnson, my shoes are Karen Millen, my gloves are by Olivia, my purse is by Les Posh, and my floral shawl is something I designed myself inspired by 666 photography.My necklace is something I found at a flea market in California and my earrings are by Tarina Tarantino.The madness before the show!

I wanted them all!If you haven’t tried Betsey Johnson’s intimates you are totally missing out. Even her lingerie is fun, comfortable, and sexy.
This was one of my favorite pieces from her show, the floral design and slit that exposes your stems is extremely sexy for Spring.
Suzanne and I love these corset shorts!Stud it, spike it, make it glitter!I need these hats!Bravo!Betsey Johnson comes out at the end of every show just as vibrant as the last. Her energy and positive attitude has everyone adoring more than just her niche for design. She still did her cart wheels too!It was an amazing show. I wish I could have shot better photos but my SLR isn’t really good for shooting movement and those models were walking pretty fast.My favorite punk glam princess and her awesome momma striking a pose after the show.I love these girls!After the show we just walked around and then I just headed downtown for din din with my girls.Good times!
