Love me some Betsy Johnson!!! Dying from these models who completed their swimsuit looks (in a way only Besty Johnson could) with Crayola colored wigs and princess tiaras !!!
What I wore….
To the Betsy Johnson event on the rooftop of The Betsy Hotel!!!
A bright floral mirrored print dress by Clover Canyon, Snob lipstick by MAC, and Louis Vuitton clutch. Wanting the dress to be the main statement I kept the accessories light with simple diamond studs and diamond solitaire necklace by Elsa Peretti.
