Promtastic: Betsey Johnson Spring 2008

It's Friday! Time for a little fun - and we have just the thing: Gorgeous runway pics from Betsey Johnson's Spring 2008 collection! "Life is a prom," says the designer. Indeed. These petticoated, glittering creations shout party time. They look good enough to eat. They're what we thought dresses should look like when we were little girls, all ruffle, satin, sequin, tulle, crinoline and lace. Like cupcakes you can wear. They will make you giddy. They will make you giggle. They will make you wish you were 16 again...or, if Johnson has anything to say about it, they'll make you sprinkle a little levity into your wardrobe no matter what your age. The original wild child herself is as fabulous now in her 60s as she was during her Warhol-scene days - she embodies youthful exuberance, and she's cool as all get out. And what's more, she makes us grin from ear to ear. Enjoy!

Styling tip: Why wait until spring? Mix in some satin, metallics, glittery belts, rhinestone brooches, and festive tights when you get decked out for New Year's. Pink cheeks, shimmering lips and iridescent eyelids finish the flirty look.
