Designers are sometimes eccentric and a little bit wacky, and Betsey Johnson definitely fits that description. Her designs themselves are usually colorful, flirty and feminine … and definitely wearable. But when it comes to her fashion shows and the clothes she wears herself, she oftentimes steps over the line from quirky to just plain outrageous. Though you can’t really fault her for that — she certainly garners the attention that she wants.

Betsey Johnson

At the 3rd Annual DKMS Gala in New York City this week, Betsey Johnson looked just kooky. With a bright blue full skirt and a sunny yellow jacket, she was colorful from head to toe. Her accessories fit the rest of her outfit perfectly, from her vibrant jeweled clutch to her sandals with their huge red platforms.

The charity event raises money to help patients battling leukemia to find bone marrow matches. So no matter what Betsey Johnson was wearing, it was for a great cause. Also in attendance at the event at Cipriani were Vera Wang, Rihanna, Derek Lam, Rachel Zoe and many other designers and celebrities.
