Quotable: Betsey Johnson’s Advice For The Future Frozen Faces Of America

“It’s a free country, it’s a free life, do what you want. But get a good doctor! For crying out loud, pay the money to have a good doctor!”

Betsey Johnson Brings The Noise To “Project Runway”

Fans of the ’90s, tulle, and “Sassy” magazine, get ready! Ebullient designer Betsey Johnson will be the guest judge on tonight’s episode of “Project Runway.” Tonight, the designers will be asked to make wearable items out of party store supplies (crepe paper bolero, anyone?).

It’s a tough challenge — apparently one designer ends up in the hospital tonight — and we’re wondering how Betsey’s quirkiness will mix with Michael Kors’ wit and Nina Garcia’s steely reserve. Betsey’s crazy style would have probably been “auf-ed” by Heidi Klum and the rest of the P-Run gang, so we’re expecting sparks to fly at the judging table. Keep reading »

First Look: Betsey Johnson’s Eloise-Themed Suite For The Plaza

At long last, the Plaza Hotel has opened up its Eloise-themed suite designed by Betsey Johnson. The New York Times has the scoop: It’s done up in two-toned pink stripes, has custom fabric with Eloise-y phrases (“Charge it, please”), a princess-like bed, and a few dolls and toys. It will only cost you about $1,000 a night, and “to add an adjoining room for grown-ups, the nightly rate begins at $2,045.” For grown-ups. At least kids still get the under-12 discount.

What Should Betsey Johnson’s Plaza Hotel Eloise Suite Look Like?

It was announced last September that fashion designer Betsey Johnson would be designing an Eloise-themed suite for The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Those of you who were obsessed with Eloise to the extent that we were as kids may or may not have peed your pants in excitement at the news. Now, finally, the unveiling of the room is just a few days away. On July 29, we’ll all see what Johnson has done with the room and probably wish we were 8 years old all over again. (Take a look at Johnson’s apartment at left and you’ll know why we’re so jealous of grade schoolers.) We’re hoping that the room involves a healthy amount of artsy crayon on the walls and a cage for Skipperdee the turtle. What does your dream Eloise room look like? [Fashion Foie Gras] Keep reading »

Pretty As A Rosebud

Betsey Johnson never fails to deliver when it comes to making super fun yet utterly feminine clothing. However, this particular skirt (part of her Opening Ceremony collection) not only cries out Betsey, but we think it’s perfect when trying to conceal any tummy bulge. You know, if we cared about that sort of thing.

The Next Celeb Fashion Collab Could Involve Simmons Sisters

There’s really nothing like a good collaboration in fashion because it’s as if two creative minds have merged in one and created something totally unique, like Anna Sui for Target or Manolo Blahnik for Rachel Roy. During the madness before Monarchy’s Spring 2010 collection, between a Janice Dickinson sighting and Robert Verdi on-air moments, Vanessa and Angela Simmons discussed their own design collaboration dreams with us.”Betsey Johnson! She would be, wow,” the sisters gushed in unison. “We also love the boys from DSquared. There are just so many great fashion designers right now, but those would be are our two top ones. They have so much fun with fashion.” Will we see Pastry for Betsey Johnson next season, along with a trio of cartwheels? Keep reading »

Betsey Johnson Releases Awesome Vintage Runway Footage

If you love to watch old runway videos as much as I do, has Betsey Johnson got a treat for us today! The designer just posted her runway archives, which, even if you’re not a huge fan of hers, are amazing for the following reasons: a.) They are a fascinating glimpse back at some crazy shows before Fashion Week became this colossal commercial entity; b.) They remind us that her dresses were what all the cool girls were wearing during the ’80s; and c.) Her sense of fun and whimsy hasn’t changed over the years. You won’t see stompy, sad-eyed models moping down a Betsey catwalk, and to this day the designer still does a cartwheel at the end of the presentation. Can’t imagine her colleague, Carolina Herrera, doing that — ya know? Enjoy the vid above, which starts out with the amazing, groundbreaking-back-in-the-day black supermodel Pat Cleveland freakin’ working it. Watch the rest here.
