Betsey Johnson’s Last-minute McQueen Tribute

"I think it was my favorite show," Betsey Johnson told us today after showing her fall 2010 collection. "It was the most 'me' show, with all the cornball stuff like the birdies and the chicken bags." The designer also worked in a tribute to Alexander McQueen — a bride with wax lips trailed by a "Long Live McQueen" sign. Johnson changed the look two days ago to honor McQueen and worked out some preshow jitters today by wrapping the bride's bouquet herself. "I was scared with the lips," she said. "I love those lips, and when McQueen did those lips I thought, Oh my God, he loves those candy wax big red lips! But his were real."
