Okay, ladies! Boobies up, butts out! That was the theme to this year’s collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center last night, where everyone was in attendance, including rapper Nicki Minaj, who Betsey was ecstatic to see.
Unfortunately, I was not there to attend the wild, wacky and wonderful show, but I was able to catch it online…and Betsey never ceases to amaze me every season.
This season was about all uniqueness, fun and flirtatiousness. Oh, and let’s not forget florals, and bold picture prints. Starting the show was Betsey’s daughter, Lulu Johnson, coming out in a oh-so-vamp white gown. The models were all rockabilly glammed-up in pink lips, courtesy of Stila Pro Artist and an amazing lightning bolt earring by Fabrication Unlimited. The dress that wowed me (and I MUST have) was the shimmering pink trimmed gown with some hot pink high tops for a elegant rebel look. I simply adored it. Another was the tri-colored leather jacket which would go good with all of my jeans.
We also cannot forget the Betsey performance, where she does her signature cartwheel and a perfect split, something that I am not able to do. Before the show started she was backstage giving a speech and she told all of her models to “rock the shit out of the show!!!” I have to hand it to her, this lady is 60+ years, breast cancer survivor and she’s STILL got it.
I totally enjoyed the collection and I am looking forward to Fall 2012!
