“Love and marriage,” said Betsey Johnson of her inspiration before her diverse, bridal-themed spring show, which she dubbed “Prenup” (editors were sent packets of rice with their show invites). The show’s opening pair of looks — a white suit worn by SoulCycle’s Stacey Griffith, who walked the runway with a towering model in a feathered dress — was a love song to LGBT marriages. The collection was quintessentially Betsey — at once over-the-top girly, playful, sexy and tacky. Among all the ornate tutus and ruffled taffeta party frocks were some more down-to-earth items, like a strapless white minidress and a pink lace gown with plenty of twirl.
