Betsey Johnson showcased a retrospective collection of her eclectic styles through the years, including her signature frilly party dresses and eccentric styling. With appearances from Cyndi Lauper and a party-like atmosphere the show was a fashion week hit.
Get the Beauty Look:
• Lead Manicurist Gina Edwards fashioned an imPRESSED press-on manicure in shade “High Hopes” with a layer of Ruby Kisses nail polish.
• Available at Rite Aid, Walgreens, Walmart and K-Mart stores nationwide
• The makeup artists created a “cartoon pin up” look with heavy liquid liner, darkened brows and deep red lipstick. A bright yellow eyes shadow was applied to the middle of the eyelid all the way up to the brow. Accented with a hint of silver for a bold statement look.
• Aveda created the hair look by heavily crimping sections to make sure that the texture really got into the hair, just before the show started the hair was fluffed out. “The hair is Betsey” said Aveda’s John Reyman, befitting of the youthful and fun vibe of the always-eccentric Betsey Johnson.
