Betsey Johnson is every young fashionista's fantasy of what a fashion designer is. Once upon a time, I thought I would grow up to be a Betsey, but I'm perfectly content these days to stand on the sidelines and be a spectator instead.
The beauty look at Betsey is always a little bit subversive and a whole lot of sexy. While she diverged from seductive and went more fembot for her last collection, Fall 2014 was a real return to sex kitten.
Hair by Michael Duenas for Schwarzkopf Professional was big and tousled.
Betsey's favorite makeup artist, Sarah Lucero of Stila fame, paired a smokey plum eye with lashes to kill and glittery, glossy magenta lips were a little bit smudgey.
And the nails, designed by Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor, were made to match the million dollar duds that they accompanied down the runway– gorgeous turquoise lacquer with gold leaf flakes pressed on top.
As always, Betsey's collection was like a technicolor stream, laden with red sequin pant suits, and neon furry things.
