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.

Forget cool disinterest; Johnson showed her delight over the collection — and its crisp single-shoulder finale gown — with an embrace from Sharon Needles.

Forget a traditional white dress; this bridal mini is all about the traditional “something blue”.

Silver doesn’t simply have to be an accent color at a wedding reception when you have this metallic stunner in your closet.

Instead of staging a serious chat with your fiancé about marital finances, pop this crop top on and let it do the talking for you.

This dress would look just as fitting at an ’80s Under The Sea-themed prom as it would a wedding. A multi-use ensemble, perhaps?

This embellished, empire-waisted gown is the closest Johnson came to traditional with her collection, and consequently the dress happens to be a perfect union of sweet and eccentric.

Somewhere, Molly Ringwald is missing a prom dress. This flouncy little pink number is a guaranteed way to steal attention from the bride, if you’re so inclined.

Layers of delicate pink lace adorn this showstopper of a gown. If Jessica Biel and Kaley Cuoco celebrated their I-Do’s in pink, maybe it’s time for the rest of us to follow suit.

Black at a wedding may not be so outré for spring 2015 if Betsey Johnson has anything to do with it.
