New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson started her show with herself, carrying her granddaughters. Aw. It's clear Betsey is loving life with her growing family, and why not? Her company celebrated 30 years in the fashion business this year, with no signs of flailing. With a Sesame Street set and kiddie music, it was clear this was going to be a very youthful collection. And it was, with the first set wearing colorful separates, hoop skirts, bloomers, and ruffles.But then a jesting pirate appeared, and the tone shifted to Pirates of the Caribbean. Let the amusement begin! This bit sent down very wearable black separates and striped basics — this was very tame for Betsey, alas, it was cute. Kelly Osbourne seemed amused, in her turquoise BJ party dress. The rest of the show delivered adorable mini floral pieces and wedding dresses. I didn't know Betsey was venturing into bridal, and though the models were in handcuffs, the dresses were flirty and sexy — perfect for the adventure-loving bride.

I love Betsey's playfully funky style. I probably wouldn't wear most of the clothes I see on the runway, but I've stumbled upon quite a few things I liked in her stores. Oh and her shoes! Her shoes have been wonderful for the past few seasons.

I've actually liked some of her dresses, but this stuff...well, I thought it was a costume ad. So...nyet.

She's so over the top, and in a not so good way.

Nothing from Betsey ever blew me away. I try to like her, but it just doesn't work for me.
