Betsey Johnson has always stood for girly flirtatiousness. She had a darker, more rock n' roll edge for Spring with playful takes on skulls and skeletons. A rib cage was embroidered for a trompe l'oeil effect on corset dresses, a rose adorned skeleton was used in jackets and dresses as well. A fun skull print was used on a few separates.
Black lace, corsets and jagged embroidery were used to great effect in other Lolita-like outfits. Flamboyant personalities like Johnny Weir, Beth Ditto and Nicki Minaj flanked the front row of this audience.
