The Betsey Johnson Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Show Featured A Same-Sex Couple, A Drag Queen, And All The Deliciously Crazy Wedding Dresses You Could Ask For
Leave it to Betsey Johnson to take an already pageantry-laden Fashion Week show into an even higher level of fantasy. For her Spring 2015 collection, the stalwart of the fashion industry chose to celebrate marital union in all of its diverse forms. From a prenup-emblazoned crop top to a boudoir-appropriate bridal teddy, Johnson left predictable florals, flounce, and trains to the amateurs. Models including RuPaul's Drag Race alum Sharon Needles stormed the runway in theatrical makeup and teased hair, demure blushing-bride stereotypes be damned. Johnson drew further adoration from her audience by including same-sex couples in her show, from a black and white suit-clad pair who kicked off the show to a duo in a white sweetheart neckline minidress and a slouchy track suit, respectively. Viva la modern bride, whomever they may be, because this collection is made for the 21st century couple.
